Prefer a Crepe on Pancake Day? That's okay, this recipe has got you covered! Topped with Orange zest and Maple syrup.
Cook Time2 mins
Prep Time3 mins
Servings8 crepes


  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tbsp cold water


  • In a bowl mix the ingredients together with a whisk to remove all the lumps.
  • Add more cold water if needed (it needs to be thin but not too much.)
  • Spray a hot flat pan with coconut oil or neutral oil and pour a ladder of the batter on your pan away from the heat – quickly moving the batter around the hot pan to spread it thinly. (Being fast and not pouring too much batter is the key in making proper thin French crepes)
  • Leave to cook on medium heat for about 1 min per side then flip with a spatula and cook the other side.
  • Keep the cooked crepe on the side and cook the remaining crepes the same way.
  • Top with your favourite toppings: orange zest and maple syrup or jam or vegan notella!
