Vegan crêpes

What is even more difficult than coming up with creative recipes for new dishes? Exactly: finding reliable recipes for the absolute basics. From fluffy waffles, a good basic recipe for hummus or a hearty vegan gravy. Today, we're talking about another classic that you can't imagine a Christmas market without, but which is nevertheless made much less often than classic pancakes or pancakes because (in my opinion) they always sound a bit more complicated: vegan crêpes. But what exactly is the difference?

In addition to the liquid batter, crêpes are usually baked with very little fat and traditionally on a cast iron pan. But don't worry, the crêpes we are making today also work perfectly well in a conventional pan, and you don't need a traditional batter rake, either. Generally speaking, no exciting ingredients are required – the dry ingredients, i.e., flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, are simply mixed together and stirred with plant-based milk. Once the batter has reached the right consistency (liquid but not too much), all you have to do is fry it in a pan. Incidentally, we only sugar it lightly. Otherwise, it can quickly become too much with all the sweet stuff on top.

And then it's time to get down to business: the topping! What's your favorite way to eat crêpes? Isa prefers to sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon. Julia tops them with a tremendous amount of fruit and apple sauce. And maybe you're on the chocolate cream team? Or banana or caramel? Or maybe you go crazy and make a vegan crepe cake with strawberries? The list goes on …

Vegan crêpes

6 crêpes
20 minutes


  • 250 g (2 cups) flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 400 ml (1.66 cups) plant-based milk
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. Sieve flour into a bowl. Add sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to cimbine.
  2. Add plant-based milk little by little and stir until a smooth batter forms. The batter should be running nicely from a spoon, but it shouldn't be TOO liquid.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium-low heat. Add a ladle full of batter and spread the batter equally in the pan. Fry for approx. 3 min. from both sides until they are golden brown. If you notice that they get too dark, when the batter is not baked through, reduce heat and close the pan with a lid while frying. Repeat with remaining batter until everything is used up.
  4. Here comes adventure time! Crêpes are done, so now you can fill or top them with whatever you like. From cinnamon-sugar mixture to fruits and chocolate dream.
