These Lemon Sugar Crepes are so simple, yet delicious. Once you try these, they will probably become your favorite way to eat crepes. They are so easy to make and are perfect for breakfast or as dessert crepes!
Growing up, we would have crepes at least once a month. My mom is British and she always told us that crepes were British pancakes. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I realized they were French, but by then, the damage was done: these are permanently British pancakes to me.
Most of the time, we would eat these with just a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice. The combination of sweet and tart made these absolutely amazing and to this day, lemon juice and sugar are my favorite crepe toppings.
These lemon sugar crepes are sure to become a favorite, especially when paired with our favorite crepe recipe. These homemade crepes have such a beautifully light flavor and they taste absolutely amazing. Eating lemon sugar crepes always reminds me of Saturday mornings as a kid and is the perfect way to start the day.
How to make the perfect crepe
I’ve had so many people tell me that they are scared to make crepes from scratch. Honestly, once you get the hang of making crepes, they aren’t much harder than your basic pancake.
The key I’ve found to making really great crepes is to make sure you have a nice, smooth pan. It’s much easier to flip crepes without cracking them when you have a pan that doesn’t have any scratches or imperfections. I keep one pan just for crepes so I know that it will be ready to go when I need it.
My favorite pan to make crepes in is this one from Le Creuset. It makes it so much easier to create perfect crepes every single time.
