  1. Beat together the eggs, milk, orange juice, anise, and flour until smooth. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. To cook the crepes, melt a little butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat; brush the butter evenly over the pan. Pour in 1/4 cup of the batter, tilt the pan to distribute the batter evenly. Cook until the batter begins to firm up and bubble, when lightly browned, flip over, and continue cooking until browned on the other side, about 4 minutes total. Repeat with remaining batter. To serve, sprinkle crepes with sugar.

Love these! I will make these again when family comes to visit. They are great served the orange crepe sauce recipe from this site!


This is an excellent breakfast or brunch fun but easy food. I do not chill mine and cook them in oil verses the butter. Serve with powder sugar and or whipped cream. Great and impressive.


This was my first attempt at crepes and I thought that they were just okay. A tablespoon of anise extract seemed like too much. I couldn't taste the orange flavor at all and my husband said that they tasted "mediciny," but maybe anise just isn't our thing. In the end, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar and then squeezed some lemon over that and that seemed to sufficiently cover up the mediciny taste.
