Easy Crepe Bar || Recipe and tips for a delicious crepe party

Crepes are fun because they seem so fancy, but they’re really so easy! Never made them before? I promise you can. Do just a bit of extra set up and you can have a whole crepe bar that will really take your breakfast or brunch to the next level.

I discovered 5 ways to make your crepe bar extra easy, and extra awesome so I’m sharing them with you here.

1–Choose a Reason. Think Mother’s Day, Graduation, Birthday, or just Sunday! I believe even regular days can have “fancy” thrown in for no reason.

2–Make the Batter Ahead of Time. Here’s the recipe I used, and you can even make them a day before.

Crepes Recipe (adapted from Alton Brown)
Makes about 20 crepes

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup water
4 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 cup flour

Put all ingredients, EXCEPT flour, into a blender and blend for about 20 seconds. Add flour and blend another 10 seconds, or until all flour is incorporated and mixture is smooth.

Refrigerate batter overnight, or at least 1 hour.

Heat 10 inch non-stick skillet on med-hi heat. Brush with melted butter and pour 1/4 cup of batter on the pan, tilting around until the bottom of the pan is coated. Cook for one minute, or until a spatula easily slides under the crepe without sticking. Flip and cook on the other side for about 30 seconds, or until browned like the first side.

3–Remove and set on a paper towel. Repeat until all crepes are cooked (you can serve them immediately, still warm, or serve them cool.)

4–Have a Variety of Toppings. Really the sky’s the limit here. If it tastes good, it will taste good in a crepe. But there’s no need to go overboard either. A few fruits, a sweetener or two, and something crunchy will give lots of combinations.

Crepe Topping Suggestions

Strawberries (cut and mixed with a sprinkle of sugar)
Banana slices
Peanut butter
Chopped, toasted pecans
Whipped cream

5–Make Toppings Easy to Serve. I made sure everything was already cut up or chopped and placed in its own dish. Even the Nutella and whipped cream got their own bowls so that we didn’t have to worry about messy containers (or Nutella getting all over the knife handle!) And notice that little wooden bowl holding the pecans? My husband made it! Not necessary of course, but it sure made a fun addition to our table.
