Sweet and savoury French crepe recipes

The classic French cake is a lighter, thinner version of the American-style pancake, made using eggs, flour and milk. They're extremely versatile, able to be enjoyed on their own with a light drizzle of maple syrup, or stuffed with whatever fillings your heart desires - from sweet, stewed fruits, to savoury melted cheese and ham. A popular way to serve crepes is folded into triangles, or rolled into a log to encase the creamy centre. This recipe collection also includes a few cheeky crepe cake recipes, perfect for breakfast or dessert. Enjoy!
