Learn how To Freeze Crepes with this simple method! This is great for batch cooking crepes, or for storing leftover crepes.
If you find yourself with a stack of leftover crepes, freeze them! Most weekends we can devour crepes like nobody’s business, but there are times when we get a little overzealous and make a batch that’s just too big. No worries, we just freeze them. Here’s how!
Can you freeze crepes?
Yes you can! With this simple method you can easily freeze leftover crepes for up to 3 months! This is such a great way to plan ahead and/or keep delicious leftovers.
How to make crepes.
Before we even get started with how to freeze crepes, let’s make a recipe! This is my tried-and-true crepe batter recipe that I use all the time. Don’t be intimidated to make crepes, they’re so simple and delicious…it’s really just as easy as making a batch of pancakes.
How to Freeze Crepes
- Place pieces of parchment paper or wax paper between each cooled crepe and stack. Make sure to put a piece of parchment on the top crepe and the bottom so they don’t stick to the freezer bag.
- Place the stack of crepes into a freezer ziplock bag or wrap tightly with plastic wrap and foil.
- Freeze for up to 3 months.
- How many crepes to freeze at a time? Make sure to freeze batches of crepes in the quantity you will use next time. So if you eat 10 crepes at a sitting, then only freeze a stack of 10 crepes so you can defrost them all at the same time with ease.
- Parchment Paper TIP: You can cut parchment paper into small squares and use those. I like to use these (affiliate link) pre-cut parchment paper circles for cakes. They’re inexpensive and so easy to use!
Make-Ahead or Freeze!
Not only is this a great method for freezing leftover crepes, but it’s also a great way to make a big batch of crepes ahead of time. If you’re having a big brunch on the weekend, and you want to have crepes ready to go, make a batch up to 2 days ahead of time, then store them this way in the fridge.
How to defrost and reheat crepes?
Bring the stack of crepes out of the freezer and put them into the refrigerator to thaw. I like to take them out the night before I want to serve them. Then warm up one crepe at a time, slowly in a non-stick skillet on low-medium heat (sometimes I add a little melted butter to the pan). You can microwave each crepe to warm them up, but I prefer a skillet, as microwaved crepes tend to dry out and crack.
- Let the crepes cool before stacking and freezing
- If you want to have a lot of crepes, consider doubling the recipe.
- Make sure to only freeze plain crepes, with no toppings or fillings!
- Once your frozen crepes have thawed and been warmed up, it’s time to dress them up! Have a classic crepe spread with fresh fruit and all the fixings, or try these Nutella Crepes, or these Strawberry Cheesecake Crepes.
