Sourdough Crepe Recipe Ingredients
Just a few simple ingredients to make sourdough crepes

Key Ingredients

  • Melted Butter: Adds tons of flavor
  • Eggs
  • Sugar: If you are making sweet crepes, you can use a total of 2-3 tbsp of sugar. 
  • Salt: Salt is a flavor enhancer and should be added in all recipes
  • Flour: This sourdough discard crepes recipe does not call for much flour. Since the sourdough discard already has flour in it, you do not need to add much more.
  • Vanilla Extract: If you are making savory crepes, feel free to omit the vanilla extract.
  • Sourdough Discard: You will need sourdough starter discard for this recipe. However, you may also use active starter. 
  • Milk: The milk will help the sourdough crepes spread thinly during the cooking process. Remember, sourdough crepe batter is thinner than pancake batter. 

Sourdough Crepe Recipe Steps

Step 1

Add the liquid ingredients into the blender. Then, add the dry ingredients into the blender. This is a great way to ensure the all purpose flour does not stick to the sides of the blender.

Blend all of the ingredients on low speed. If you have an immersion blender, you can use that instead of the regular blender. Once the ingredients are combined, pour the batter into a large bowl and set aside for five minutes. You will have multiple cup of batter with this sourdough crepes recipe.

If you are planning on eating sourdough crepes the same day, you can let the batter rest at room temperature. On the other hand, you may also let the batter rest overnight in your fridge. A great way to save time in the morning is by blending the sourdough discard crepes the night before and letting the batter ferment in the fridge for one night. 

Step 2

Preheat your pan or skillet on medium-low heat to medium heat. If you do not have a crepe pan, use a cast iron skillet or non-stick pan. You want the pan to be at the proper heat setting If the pan is too hot, the crepes might burn. 

Brush melted butter onto the bottom of the pan. Pour one-fourth cup of batter into the skillet. Swirl the skillet in a circular motion so that the batter covers the pan evenly.

Step 3

Once the edges are golden brown, it is time to flip your sourdough crepe! Gently take your spatula onto the edges of the crepe and flip. Now, you want the first side to be facing up. Cook the crepe for roughly 30 seconds to one minute.

If you find that your sourdough crepe has crisy edges and is darker than the ideal golden brown, turn your heat down from  medium heat to medium low heat. However, do not worry! The first crepe is never perfect!

What is the secret of a good crepe?

The secret to a good crepe lies in the batter of the sourdough crepe recipe. You need to have the perfect ratio of eggs to milk to flour and discard. Too much eggs and the crepe will taste like an omlete, which you do not want. On the other hand, if you use too much flour, your crepe batter will be too thick. Batter that is too thick will result in a less than perfect crepe.

Why are my crepes crispy?

Your sourdough crepes are crispy because the heat was too high or the crepes were left in the skillet for too long. Next time for best results, try lowering the heat a little bit and flipping the crepe earlier.
