This Bisquick crepe recipe requires only 4 simple ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen, ready to go! Please refer to the recipe card at the end of the post for exact quantities.
- Bisquick mix is usually used to make thick and fluffy pancakes but can also create wonderful French crepes! Bisquick is such a versatile baking ingredient, and we also use it to make strawberry cobbler, blueberry muffins, and banana bread.
- Milk gives the crepes a delicate texture. Any type of milk will work (including non-dairy options), but I prefer whole milk.
- Egg: You need just 1 large egg to add structure and stability. Let the egg come to room temperature for the best results.
- Butter is needed to cook the crepes. I love butter because it gives the crepes a lovely buttery taste, but you can also use vegetable oil or another neutral-tasting cooking oil.
Sweet or savory crepes
The best thing about my Bisquick crepe recipe is that you can enjoy them sweet or savory by making a few minor adjustments. These are optional.
- Sweet crepes: Stir 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the Bisquick batter.
- Savory crepes: Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a little cracked black pepper to the crepe batter.
- Measuring equipment to measure the ingredients.
- Blender to mix the crepe batter.
- Large, non-stick pan or skillet to cook the crepes.
- Offset spatula or a pancake spatula is handy to flip the crepes.
How to make crepes with Bisquick
You’re going to love Bisquick crepes! It takes only a few simple steps to make the recipe, and then you have a warm plate full of crispy crepe.
1. Blend crepe batter
- Add the whole milk, egg, and Bisquick pancake mix into a blender.
- Add the liquid ingredients first so the ingredients blend smoothly.
- Run the blender until everything is combined and smooth.
2. Preheat pan
- Place a 1/4 tablespoon of butter into an 8 to 10-inch non-stick skillet and melt over medium heat.
3. Cook crepe batter
- Lift the pan off the flame and pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet with your other hand.
- Tilt and rotate the pan to spread the batter evenly and to avoid thick pockets of batter.
- Let the crepe cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until it looks dry and the edges begin to come off the pan.
4. Flip crepe
- Slide a spatula under the crepe and flip it over.
- Cook the over side for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- The crepes are ready!
Here are some tips and tricks to make perfect Bisquick crepes!
- Batter consistency: The batter should have the consistency similar to heavy cream, but still be pourable. If the batter doesn’t spread easily, add a little bit more milk to thin it out.
- Let the crepe batter rest if time allows: Resting allows the gluten in the Bisquick mix to relax, creating more tender crepes. 1 hour of rest is enough for the crepe batter, but you can be made up to 48 hours in advance, which is ideal when you’re cooking for a large brunch or party.
- An 8 to 10-inch pan is best for crepes: Heat the pan on medium heat and grease it thoroughly with melted butter before pouring the liquid batter into the pan.
- Tilt and rotate the pan as you pour the batter into the pan so that it distributes evenly without making thick pockets.
- When to flip the crepes: Once the top appears dry and the edges start to lift up from the pan, it’s time to turn the crepe.
- Use a thin, flat spatula to help flip the crepes: A thick spatula could rip the delicate crepes.
- Don’t get discouraged by the first crepe: It’s normal that your first crepe may turn out a little scruffy – it will still taste good!
- Keep the crepes warm: Stack the cooked crepes on a plate and cover the plate with aluminum foil. This helps keep them warm and from drying out as you’re preparing the rest.
Bisquick crepes can be served for any meal – be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
You can roll them up or fold them into triangles – either way is delicious!
