Full Answer

Crepes are a thinner version of pancakes and usually have the same recipe except for the amount of liquid. While standard pancakes have nearly equal volumes of liquid and flour, such as 1 cup milk to 1 cup flour, crepes usually have two parts liquids to one part flour, such as 2 cups of milk to 1 cup of flour. However, it is important to add at least one additional egg in order to ensure that the thinner batter thickens properly rather than remaining runny. Extra eggs also improve the tensile strength of the crepe so that it is less likely to break while on the pan.

One important distinction is that most pancakes include baking powder or baking soda, while crepes usually do not. Crepes made with pancake batter might be slightly fluffier than those made with a crepe batter. To make the crepes, grease the pan with butter or nonstick spray, heat the pan and then spoon a small amount of crepe batter onto the pan. Tilt the pan to spread the batter across the entire pan, and flip the crepe after three minutes.
