Apple Crepes: A Perfect Recipe for Thanksgiving At Home or Abroad

Thanksgiving is a time when people across the nation will gather with family and friends to celebrate one of our country’s hallowed traditions. If you’re not in the United States, that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate Thanksgiving! If you are spending your Thanksgiving holiday abroad, bring a little bit of home overseas with this delicious recipe for apple cinnamon crepes.

Traditional treats such as pumpkin pie might present a challenge if canned pumpkin isn’t readily available. Apples, however, are usually a safe bet. Try this apple crepes recipe for a simple dish that combines the best of both worlds:

Apple Cinnamon Crepes


  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup sifted flour
  • 3 ½ -4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ -2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • Dash of vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 large apples
  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar (to garnish)



To make the crêpe batter, beat 3 eggs together with ½ a cup of whole milk. Add ½ a cup of sifted flour and 2 tablespoons of sugar to the mixture, and stir well to avoid any lumps in the batter. For a sweet touch, add a little bit of vanilla to the crêpe batter. Dab a paper towel into some warm butter, then coat a flat nonstick pan with a thin layer of butter. Ladle just enough batter into the pan to cover its surface very thinly, and let it cook on high heat until it begins to brown. Flip and repeat.

To make the apple filling for the crepes, you’ll need two large apples. Peel, core, and slice them. Then, toss them with 3 or 4 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon to taste. Melt some butter in a frying pan and sauté the apples on medium heat until they become soft and fragrant. Once the apples are ready, ladle a generous portion onto the center of each crêpe and sprinkle with powdered sugar or cinnamon to garnish.

Enjoy this apple crepe recipe! Even if you are home, you can try this recipe out to add a new dish to your Thanksgiving repertoire. Happy Thanksgiving!
