Sourdough Blender Crepes

Sourdough crepes are one of my favorite go-to recipes for using up sourdough discard. The batter is quick to mix up in a blender, the discard adds a dimension of flavor, and the whole family loves them. Fill with sweet jam, powdered sugar or any sweet or savory fillings you like. I grew up eating crepes at least once a week. We loved them for weekend breakfasts, and now I love making them for my own family – especially these sourdough blender crepes.

Why You’ll Love these Sourdough Blender Crepes

This crepe recipe is simple and easy. Dump all the ingredients in a blender – including your sourdough discard and then pan fry them to perfection. They may take a little practice to get thin and perfect, but boy are they delicious. Quick, easy and uses up your discard, this is a recipe your whole family is going to love. You will love how easy these are to make and you can serve them with whatever toppings you want.

Important Ingredients in Sourdough Blender Crepes

  • Sourdough Discard: You can use fresh, bubbly sourdough starter or sourdough discard in this recipe. If you don’t mind a more pronounced sourdough flavor, use refrigerated discard up to a week or two old.  I always use 100% hydration sourdough discard.
  • Eggs: Eggs are one of the main ingredients in crepes, making these light, fluffy and full of protein.
  • Flour: I love using freshly milled flour in this recipe – soft white wheat is my favorite, but all-purpose works great too.
  • Milk: I use 2% or whole milk in this recipe
  • Honey: I love the subtle sweetness of honey. Substitute for granulated sugar if desired.
  • Unsalted Butter: I always use unsalted butter so I can control the salt content in my baking. Melt the butter in the frying pan before adding it to the blender.
  • Water
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Salt

How to Make Sourdough Blender Crepes

Blend up the Batter

Dump all the ingredients into a blender. While I’m adding the ingredients to the blender I put a 10-12 inch frying pan over medium-low heat and melt butter for the batter. This also serves to coat a frying pan with melted butter, perfect for my first crepe. Blend all the ingredients together until you get a thin batter. Let it sit while the frying pan finishes heating up.

Cook the Crepes

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the buttered frying pan. Pick up the pan and swirl the batter around the pan. Add a little more batter if needed to coat the pan. Bake for about 1-2 minutes until the batter has mostly cooked. Take a spatula and flip the crepe over, cooking for another 30 seconds on the other side. If your crepes cook too quickly, decrease the heat. If they are cooking too slow, increase it. It can take a little figuring out to get it just right – but it’s worth it! Butter the pan again and finish cooking until all the crepes are made.

Fill the Crepes

Fill crepes with butter, jam, powdered sugar or any other sweet or savory fillings – cheese, meat, sautéed mushrooms, spinach, whatever you want. With crepes, you have endless possibilities to make for a very fun breakfast, lunch or dinner. Serve warm and enjoy!

Amy’s Recipe Tip

Long Ferment Option: If you want to long-ferment these sourdough blender crepes, let the batter sit at room temperature for a few hours or mix the batter up the day before and keep in the refrigerator overnight.

How to Store Leftover Crepes

Leftover crepes? What leftovers?! Ha. We never have leftovers of these, but if you do, you can keep them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for a couple of days. Warm up to re-heat.

Substitutions

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I substitute dairy free milk in this recipe?

Yes. You can use any dairy-free alternative for the milk in this recipe.

My crepes keep falling apart. What am I doing wrong?

It can be tricky to cook crepes because you need to get the heat just right. I like to start with a hot frying pan, buttering it in between each crepe. Give it a little more time or increase the heat a little before flipping it.

Sourdough Blender Crepes

  • 3 large eggs
  • 120 grams sourdough discard about 1/2 cup
  • 70 grams all-purpose flour or freshly milled, whole wheat flour, about 1/2 cup
  • 240 grams milk about 1 cup
  • 60 grams water about 1/4 cup
  • 20 grams honey about 1 Tablespoon
  • 4 grams vanilla extract about 1 teaspoon
  • 3 grams salt about 1/2 teaspoon
  • 30 grams unsalted butter, melted about 2 Tablespoons
  • unsalted butter for the frying pan

Crepe Toppings

  • whipped cream
  • fresh fruit
  • powdered sugar
  • unsalted butter
  • maple syrup
  • savory toppings (meat, cheese, spinach, etc…)

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  • Add ingredients to a blender: eggs, sourdough discard, flour, milk, water, honey, vanilla extract, salt and unsalted butter. Blend together all the ingredients for about a minute until completely combined.
  • Add a little butter to the pan, just enough to coat it. Once the butter has melted, pour some crepe batter into the pan. Lift the pan up and swirl the batter around the pan until it covers the entire pan. Cook about 1-2 minutes without touching the crepe. Once the crepe is mostly cooked, flip it and cook for 30 seconds to a minute on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter, buttering the pan and frying each crepe until cooked through.
  • Top crepes with strawberries, syrup, whipped cream or anything else you would like and serve warm. Enjoy!

Notes

Sourdough Discard: In order to avoid a strong sourdough flavor, use sourdough discard that is fresh or no more than a day or two old. I always use 100% hydration sourdough discard. If your discard is very runny, you may need a little extra flour in this recipe.
Long Ferment Option: If you want to long-ferment these sourdough blender crepes, let the batter sit at room temperature for a few hours or mix the batter up the day before and keep in the refrigerator overnight.
