Go and grab a full on European breakfast with my foolproof Crepes recipe involving only 2 ingredients!

Hi Yo! TGIF, friends!

You guys, I just read that Kurt Cobain’s daughter is like twenty-something. Oh. My. Goodness! How old AM I?!

I still remember, I think it was yesterday, when he passed away. AND I cried! Well I cried because everyone else was crying and thought that I should, too. No, I’m not heartless. I just didn’t really know of him. I only liked the Teen Spirit song. Besides, I was still on the NKOTB-train.

But, seriously, she’s in her twenties?? So ODD! I could’ve sworn she was an infant.

Anywho. We’z old…  Let’s talk about something current.

Currently I am daydreaming about walking into a Pancake House, but one that’s not about Pancakes and it’s all about Crepes. So, a Crepe House. I do love pancakes, though… But not as much as Crepes.

You know I love Crepes, and you know this to be a fact because I’m forever trying new things with ’em; Lemon Crepes, Blueberry Crepes, Bananas Foster Crepes… the love is true.

HOW TO MAKE TWO-INGREDIENT CREPES

However, today’s 2 Ingredient Crepes are brought to you by my one and only, my very beautiful country of Macedonia. THIS is how we do Crepes – flour and water. Done. We keep it reaaaaal simple.

  1. First, we combine the flour with seltzer water (soda water, carbonated water) and whisk to combine.
  2. Set it aside for a few minutes while we heat up a nonstick pan.
  3. Add some of the batter to the pan, swirl it around gently, and cook until edges curl-up; flip and cook for 1 more minute and be done.

These 2 Ingredient Crepes are also called Dieter’s Crepes and/or Poor Man’s Crepes. 🙂 Milk and eggs were too expensive back in the day. The struggle was real.

FILLINGS FOR CREPES

When we were little, my Mom used to turn out a hundred of these (I’m not exaggerating) 2 Ingredient Crepes at a time. She would then stuff them with either honey and ground walnuts, sometimes with feta cheese, OR even minced garlic and olive oil. Best stuff on Earth, I tell you. I’d lick my fingers off each and every time.

Since this is Holy Week for us, and today we celebrate Good Friday, I thought it was the perfect day to share these with you because this entire week we are on a strict, completely vegan diet and these Crepes have saved me from starvation. Not even kidding. Can’t wait to attack that Easter Feast on Sunday.

By the way, I don’t even know what to do with myself because this fast is keeping me hAngry. Can’t deal. *Runs into the kitchen and makes another batch*

P.S. For the record, I’m still riding the NKOTB train. The Right Stuff 4EVA!

ENJOY!

    I’m also from Macedonian and Bulgarian descent- was so excited to see that in your article! Loved all the foods my grandmothers made. Looking forward to trying these with some creative vegan fillings.
    Thanks!!

  2. What size skillet should be used? I tried them and although they tasted good, they were so soggy I couldn’t flip them or transfer them to a plate. They never browned and they seemed almost raw even after turning the heat up and cooking for longer than instructed. Any ideas?

    1. Hi! The pan should be at least 10-inches. You have to let the crepes sit at least 3 minutes before turning them over. It’s impossible for them not to cook when they’ve been set over heat for several minutes. Besides, if you’re looking for that deep color you get when making traditional crepes, you won’t find it here in this recipe, unfortunately. However, if you do want a traditional crepe recipe, with eggs and milk, I have a couple of those here:

      I hope this helps!

    In the “old days” sparkling mineral water or seltzer were used. Still cheaper than milk and eggs … unless you lived in the village. These are the same as Bulgarian palachinki. My husband makes them every Sunday and we eat them with feta. So tasty!

    1. Q Kumber

      I tried them. The shape holds and they flip well but there is absolutely no flavor. I added 2 Tbsp water, 1 tsp salt 2 tbsp sugar, and coated the pan in vegan butter. –they are much better that way. They still work.

    1. LOL! You could be right!! 😀 Didn’t think of that one. 🙂
      So you need to use club soda/seltzer water because the bubbles will aid in fluffier crepes. Also, with just water, the crepe batter won’t spread as well and it will somewhat burn the crepes. You can also use Sprite, but then you’re adding a lime-flavor as well as some extra calories. 😀

    Hi there.
    Two questions:
    1) How many grams of flour is that (1 cup + 2T)?
    2) Is seltzer water the same thing as carbonated water?

    Thanks <3

  5. These are so, so pretty!! I love the bright berries! We used to eat them with apple butter and powdered sugar. They were a real treat and yeah, somehow moms can churn a ton of these things and they all turn out perfectly! I cried when Kurt died too. I guess I’m old too!

  6. Pia

    Hi. Thanks for such a simple recipe plus vegan too.. Can i make a crepe cake using this recipe and also how long can i store it in the refrigerator for? Thanks

    1. Hi Pia! Yes, it does work for a crepe cake, but I’m not sure about how long it will hold up in the fridge. I have never kept them in the fridge for longer than an hour, and they’re always covered because they dry out quickly.

    Sounds great! Have a Happy Easter! St. Sava has something going on all weekend. Lots of food too. What are your Easter traditions? My Godfather would make similar crepes called gebanitza (not sure of spelling).Will you have tomb blessing next weekend?
