Tips for making sourdough crepes
I love this recipe because it is super easy and is the perfect fuel to start our mornings off right. Here are a few tips that I have found to help me take my crepes to the next level:
- This recipe is perfect for using up any extra sourdough discard that you may have. If you aren’t sure how to make your own sourdough starter, check out this post on how to make a sourdough starter from cratch.
- Measurements are flexible, depending on how much sourdough starter you have as well as the consistency of it. The thicker the starter, the more milk you may need to add.
- I prefer whisking my eggs with a fork. Try it – you’ll be surprised at how much easier it is than using a traditional whisk!
- I prefer melting my butter in the cast iron skillet that I will cook the crepes in. That way, the pan is already coated with some extra butter for added flavor and make the flip easier.
- Unlike sourdough pancakes, you want your crepe batter to be thin.
- If you are more of a visual learner, check out my YouTube channel to watch me bake some sourdough crepes from scratch!

How to keep crepes warm
While you are cooking crepes, it can be difficult to keep the first few warm. With their thin layers, this breakfast can cool down quickly, which no one wants to happen.
My trick to keeping crepes warm? Keep your oven on a warm setting (usually around 200 degrees) and place on a baking dish inside the oven.
Then, when you present the delicious crepes, the first one is just as warm and fresh as the last.

How to store crepes
If you want to plan ahead to have crepes for the week, then a smart storing method is essential.
Leftover crepes can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days with parchment paper placed in between and wrapped in beeswax wrap.
Interested in storing these crepes for longer? Freeze them for up to 2 months.
Fair warning: I do not often come across a morning with leftover crepes – no matter how many I cook! This recipe is that good.
