Easy Crepe Recipe Cooked in the OVEN: for Large Crepes (Lasagna, Cakes and More)

A super EASY crepe recipe that is cooked in the oven—no need to flip them! You can create large crepes for cakes, lasagna, cannelloni and more!

We all love crêpes, but cooking them one by one in a pan can be inefficient depending on what we need those crêpes for. Plus, sometimes rectangular or square-edge crêpes are preferable to the round crêpes traditionally prepared in a pan. This is especially true if you want to make to stack crepes lasagna-style, use them to make a cake or to cover a Beef Wellington (as we do in our recipe!).

Adding our crepe batter to a hot nonstick baking tray before popping it in the oven!

Easy Crêpe Recipe in the Oven: Tips

Pre Heat the Oven with the Baking Tray Inside

Pre-heat the oven with the baking tray inside so that the tray is already hot when you pour on the crêpe batter. Buon appetito!

The finished crepe is perfect! We did not need to flip it because the oven cooks the bottom and top at the same time!

Servings 2 large 40cm x 30cm (16″ x 12″) crêpes


  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 mixing bowl


Crêpes —for two rectangular in size— 40cm x 30cm (16″ x 12″)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup milk preferably, whole milk
  • ½ tbsp fine salt
  • 2 tbsp fine granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter melted


Make the Crêpe

  • To make the crêpe batter, beat together the eggs.
    2 whole eggs
  • In another large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, salt and sugar.
    1 cup all-purpose flour, ½ tbsp fine salt, 2 tbsp fine granulated sugar
  • Add the milk to the flour a little at a time, mixing the batter to a smooth paste each time you add more milk.
    1 ¼ cup milk
  • When all of the milk is added, whisk in the beaten eggs and the melted butter.
    2 tbsp butter
  • Pass the crêpe batter through a sieve (strainer) to remove any clumps that remain in the batter.
  • To bake the crêpes: Place a large (buttered) rectangular baking tray (with sides) in a pre-heated 400°F (200°C) oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the hot baking tray and add a thin layer of crêpe batter over the entire bottom of the baking tray.
  • Return the baking tray to the oven and bake at the same temperature just until the sides of the crêpe begin to pull away from the tray. Remove the baking tray and carefully pull the crêpe off of the tray. Transfer it to parchment paper or a work surface to cool.
    Make crêpes as long as the batter remains. Freeze any extra crêpes!
