Ingredients Needed For Crepes

Sourdough crepe ingredients in a bowl.

There are a few ingredients you will need to make these delicious and simple sourdough discard crepes.

Eggs: You will need quite a few eggs for this recipe. You can also cut this recipe in half or double it to make more or less crepes.

Sourdough Discard: You will need to have some sourdough discard on hand you don’t need a whole lot of it for this recipe.

Butter: Don’t skimp out on the butter that’s what gives it such a delicious flavour and makes it melt in your mouth!

Sugar: I use Raw Sugar but you can use honey, maple syrup, rapadura, really any sugar you like. You only need a little bit as it really does give the crepes a lovely slightly sweet flavour.

Salt: Just a pinch of sea salt or Himalayan salt is all you need. Salt adds minerals and flavours I always add at least a little salt to just about everything!

Equipment Needed To Make Crepes

There isn’t much you need to make this delicious sourdough discard crepe recipe!

Bowl: You need a large enough bowl to mix all your ingredients in.

Pan: I use a cast iron pan it’s well-oiled so nothing sticks to it. You can use a medium size pan for larger crepes which is what I do or use a smaller pan to make more mini ones.

Whisk or fork for mixing all the ingredients together.

Spatula for flipping your crepes.

How To Make This Sourdough Crepe Recipe

Sourdough discard crepe cooking in a pan.
  1. The first thing you will want to do is melt the butter in a pan.
  2. While the butter is melting you can mix the eggs, sourdough discard, salt and sugar in a bowl.
  3. Once the butter has melted whisk it quickly into your egg mixture as you don’t want the eggs to start cooking from the hot butter.
  4. Make sure your pan is well oiled or buttered if you don’t have a nonstick pan. I keep my pan on medium to low heat.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of mixture into your pan. This can vary depending on the size of your pan. You want the crepe mixture to completely coat the bottom of the pan. I tend to turn the pan to make sure it coats the bottom evenly.
  6. Let it cook for about 2 minutes on one side and then flip it over and let it cook for another minute or so.
  7. Repeat with the rest of the mixture making sure to keep your pan oiled up so they don’t stick.
  8. Fill with whatever filling you desire and top with honey or maple syrup and enjoy!

  5. Yoghurt

Sourdough Crepe Questions and Answers

Are Crepes Healthy?

Crepes are actually pretty healthy depending on if you agree fat is good for you. These crepes are rich in protein, fats and some fermented flour. Pretty good ingredients if you ask me. With the filling you can make it as healthy as you like by adding fresh fruit, sauteed vegetables or some meat and cheese into it. The fats and protein can help to keep your body full and fuelled for the days task.

What Are The Two Types Of Crepes?

There are two different types of crepes savoury and sweet. This recipe is a sweet recipe but you can easily change it to be savoury by swapping the sugar for salt and spices.

Are Crepes Okay For Weight Loss?

This depends on the filling you use inside your crepe. Crepes themselves tend to have less calories than things like pancakes and waffles and are filled with protein from the eggs and fats from the butter.

Can You Freeze Sourdough Crepes?

Yes you can freeze crepes. Let them cool down completely before freezing and separate them with a paper towel. Place them inside a freezer bag and place in the freezer for up to 4 months or so. When you want to use crepes take them out and let them defrost. I’d heat them slightly and enjoy as normal.
