I have light cream with 15% fat. How can I use his cream instead of milk in crepes?

Do I need to use water and what percentage?

  • What kind of crepes? Do you have a base recipe you use?

1 Answer 1


In that recipe, there are 2 cups of milk, and 2 tablespoons of butter.

The difference in fat from dairy in going from milk to light cream at 15% fat is about 3 tablespoons of fat (and therefore, about 3 tablespoons less water).

You are almost quite likely going to get a quite similar outcome if you eliminate the butter, and maybe add a tablespoon or two of water.

  • Thanks a lot! One thing I didn't understood: how much cream I should add, 2 cups?
