Let’s Cook Crepes


You know, Harajuku is one of the most popular towns for young people + tourists. Ask us “What is the most popular snack/food there?” We all answer “Crepes!” It’s a young memory, Harajuku food.


  • Cake flour — 100g
  • Sugar — 1tbsp.(15g)
  • Milk — 200ml
  • Egg — 1
  • Oil — for frying pan, a little
  • Fillings & Toppings: whipped cream, chocolate syrup, bananas, strawberries-whatever you like


  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Large frying pan or electric plate
  • Ladle
  • Turner
  • Paper towel (to spread oil on the pan)
  • Large dish
  • Large papers, if you want to roll & hand like harajuku style


< Dough >

  1. Mix flour and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add 1/2 of milk and mix well until flour becomes smooth.
  3. Add egg and mix well.
  4. Add remaining 1/2 milk and mix well.

< Fry >

  1. Heat the frying pan on medium and spread oil using a paper towel.
  2. !Caution! be careful not to heat too much because dough has to be spread thin before forming.
  3. Pour 1 scoop of dough on the pan, immediately spread with a turner or back of a ladle like painting (you will need to tilt the pan or place it on a mat).
  4. Gently peel off when the bottom seems cooked/ surface seems unwet.
  5. Reverse it and cook for several seconds to make “outside- golden/ inside- yellow”.
  6. Place the crepe on a dish.
  7. Repeat 1 to 6 to make some pieces.
Spread it larger & thinner!
These are the professional tools! You will see the technique in Harajuku.
Stack, stack, stack…

< Roll >

  1. Place whipped cream and other fillings at 1/8 of a crepe.
  2. Fold it half, then roll it to make corn shape.
  3. Roll and cover with a paper, if you need:) <done!>
Do not be greedy! Otherwise crepes will be fat shapes.
The menu panel at a crepe shop

See above photo! There are so many flavors over 30 in a shop. All the flavors in the photo are sweet, but some meal- flavors are sold- ex. pizza (tomato sauce + cheese , tuna salad (canned tuna and mayonnaise mixture + lettuce). The yummies are rolled up, and served.
