A recipe for crepes, aka Pandekager in Danish

In Denmark, we call crepes pandekager which means pancakes. As a child, my mom made them for us as dessert but sometimes also for dinner in which case she would leave out the sugar and make a savory filling instead.

The filling options are endless. For the sweet version, my preference would be my mom’s homemade jam and perhaps a little sprinkle of sugar.

Crepes are really easy to make. Have a try with the recipe below.


  • 125 gr. all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tsp cane sugar
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar (can leave out if you use the protein powder)
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • a pinch of salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • butter for the pan


  1. In a bowl, whisk everything together until you see no lumps of flour
  2. Let the batter rest, covered, in the fridge for 20-25 minutes
  3. Once ready, heat a non-stick pan and let a small pad of butter melt
  4. When the pan is hot, pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto the pan and spread it by tilting the pan (you may need to use more or less, depending on the size of your pan)
  5. Turn the pancake once you see the edges get brown and let it cook on the other side
  6. Continue until you have used all the batter. Melt more butter if needed after you make a few pancakes
  7. Serve warm with sugar, jam, berries, whipped cream, ice cream, Nutella, chocolate or whatever you’re in the mood for!
