Beach Crepes

Coco & Crepes

It’s true.  I have stolen my dear friend Lynn’s recipe for swedish pancakes. I have also blatantly renamed it “beach crepes” because we always make them whenever we go out to the family beach house on Whidbey Island. The kids beg for them and I always willingly oblige. We are out there mostly in the summer, so I always a make a topping for them of whatever berry is in season. I mix the berries with a little cornstarch and sugar and boil them until they thicken into a nice gooey topping.  The kids love it with blueberries, but I think nothing beats our blackberries around here.  Lynn’s family likes theirs with butter, fresh lemon juice and sugar.  I hope Lynn will forgive me for my evil ways ….I think she will.

P.S.  I usually have to double this recipe as we are very hearty eaters

Beach Crepes


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 T. melted butter

Cooking Directions:

  1. Mix the above ingredients into a thin batter.
  2. Pour large spoonful of batter on a heated (medium heat) crepe pan or small frying pan. Roll pan so batter covers the bottom of the pan in a thin layer.
  3. There is no need to turn the crepe over.
  4. They are done when slightly browned and lift off the pan easily.

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe Joan! I grew up eating the Schilaty Swedish pancakes and never did write the recipe down. I pulled up your site last Sunday and printed this up. I made two batches… Tanner, Gracie and Mark loved them! Childhood memories returned~ I was right back to sitting at the big oak table on Terrace Avenue with Ken, Flo, Lynn and family….. cherished memories that will forever warm my heart~
