Crepes are a common and easy dish to make for breakfast, as a snack, or to serve as a dessert after a meal. You can follow the classic recipe to prepare them or you can use an even more simple way in which eggs are not necessary. This way, you're not only saving money, you'll also be saving time, as you're getting rid of an ingredient. Egg-less crepes can be a good alternative for vegans if you substitute the milk for water or almond milk.

The next step is to melt half a spoonful of butter or margarine and add it to the egg-free crepes dough. Mix it well, and when it's ready, leave it for a couple of minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a pan and give it a coat of butter or cooking spray so that the crepes don't stick to the pan and heat it at medium-low heat.

When you make crepes without eggs you'll notice they cook much quicker than regular crepes: just as the dough is turning solid and small bubbles appear, turn it around, leave it for a couple of seconds upside down and take it off the pan.

Repeat the process until you have no crepe batter left.

What did you think of this recipe?
I was going through the recipe, it looks absolutely delicious. Just one question though, what is the olive oil for? It is not mentioned in the process where you have olive oil

Hi Srikar,

It is to add in step 2. We have amended it to say 'olive oil' to make this a little clearer. Thank you for your comment and enjoy those delicious crepes!
This recipie was way too milky. Did not work. Use one cup of milk instead
