  • 5-6 peaches peeled and sliced
  • 8 crepes
  • 1/2 cup fat sauce

Basic Crepe Recipe

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup cold milk
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter plus more for brushing pan

Fat Sauce

  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


Filling the Crepes

  1. Warm a large skillet, add fat sauce and heat until sauce barely begins to bubble.  Add sliced peaches and cook until peaches release some of their juices and peaches are beginning to warm.  Divide peaches among 8 crepes.  Fold into a triangle shape.  Dust with confectioners sugar, a dollop of whipped cream, or yogurt.  Makes 8 crepes


  1. Add the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Batter can be mixed with a whisk as well.

  2. Heat a crepe pan or a 8 or 9-inch skillet.  Brush with butter and pour about 3 tablespoons of the batter into the center of the pan.  Tilt the pan in all directions to cover the bottom of the pan.  Cook until the batter appears dry on top.  Carefully turn the crepe over and cook briefly.  Repeat process until all the batter has been used.  Makes about 10 - 12 crepes.    Julia Child's master crepe recipe

Fat Sauce

  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, buttermilk, butter, corn syrup and baking soda. Bring to a boil for 5-7 minutes. Stir constantly. The addition of the baking soda will make the syrup foam up. Make sure your pan is large enough so that it doesn’t boil over. Cook until a light caramel color.
