Crepes probably don’t need an introduction. They’re one of the most popular breakfast foods around, with everyone having made them or at least tried them. But many people wonder – how do you make crepes without eggs? Is it even possible to make good vegan crepes? Absolutely! 

Vegan crepes (naleśniki) are not only possible but can be even easier to make than regular crepes with eggs. My recipe for basic vegan crepes is extremely simple, and the crepes themselves are super tasty. The best part of these crepes is that they are perfect for all the Polish Foodies who are allergic to dairy or eggs!

Tips For Cooking Polish Vegan Crepes

  1. You can mix plant-based milk with water or use just water.
  2. I usually fry my crepes on canola oil. You can also use sunflower oil, melted butter, olive oil, coconut oil, or any other oil.
  3. You may end up with slightly stiffer, crisper vegan pancakes if you use sweetened plant-based milk or if you decide to cook thinner pancakes.

What To Serve Polish Vegan Crepes With?

Vegan crepes are best served with your favourite jam, fruit butter or preserves. In season, opt for raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, apricots and other fruits, which can also be sautéed or cooked in a pot before serving. I definetly recomend using Polish Plum Butter! You can also drizzle these crepes with your favourite syrup, sprinkle them with powdered sugar, or serve them with nut cream.

If you want, you can also make a savoury version! In this case, you can serve your vegan crepes with vegetables (mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, etc.), vegetable spreads, vegan cheese, hummus, tofu, vegan curry, etc.

Mix 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 ¼ cup of plant-based milk and add a pinch of sugar and salt if you want (it’s not necessary).

Allow the batter to rest for at least 15 minutes. Then, add oil to the batter or pour a few drops on a pan every time you fry a new crepe.

Using a small ladle, pour in just enough batter to fully cover the surface of the pan. Move the pan around, and let the batter spread throughout the surface of the pan. Fry crepes for about 30 seconds – 1 minute on each side.

When the edges start to look dry and the bottom has browned slightly, after about 30 seconds to 1 minute, it’s time to flip.

What If My Crepes Are Tearing When I Try To Flip Them?

Let the batter sit for a few more minutes before cooking. Make sure the pan is hot enough so the crepes set up quickly to flip easily.
