1. The butter and sugar crêpe

The butter and sugar crepe is a timeless recipe. Simple and delicious, this classic Breton recipe is always a hit. Reheat your crêpe and spread with 10g of Slightly Salted Moulded Paysan Breton Butter, sprinkle with sugar and you're ready to go. For a quicker recipe, try our ready-to-eat Sweet Crêpes with Brown Sugar.

2. Chocolate crêpes

Generously coat your crêpes with melted chocolate for a gourmet, comforting crêpe. For a creamy homemade chocolate, melt some pastry chocolate with a little butter in a bain-marie. Stir from time to time until the texture is smooth. You can also add fruit such as bananas or apples. You can also take inspiration from an iconic dessert by making Banana Split crêpes.

3. Crêpes with lemon curd

Add a touch of freshness to your crêpes by topping them with lemon curd. To prepare this cream, simply squeeze a lemon, add 50g of sugar and heat the mixture in a saucepan over a low heat while stirring. After beating an egg, add it to the pan, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens. Your lemon curd is now ready, and you can spread it generously over your crêpes for a tangy, fruity recipe.

4. Crêpes with fruit compote

For a comforting topping, think fruit compote. A pineapple and apple compote will go perfectly with your crêpes. Add a few walnuts for a crunchy finish.

5. Salted butter caramel crêpes

The caramel and salted butter crêpe, a symbol of Breton cuisine, is an explosion of sweet and savoury flavours that will appeal to any sweet tooth. Moulded Butter with Guérande Salt Crystals is ideal for making a creamy salted butter caramel recipe, perfect for accompanying your crêpes. Warm, it's even better! For even more speed, discover our Paysan Breton Crêpes with Salted Butter Caramel, which will make you melt with pleasure.

6. Crepes with jam

For a sweet crepe, opt for a crepe with jam. Whether you're going for the classic or the more original, there's no shortage of choice. You can also opt for a homemade jam for even more deliciousness.

7. Crêpes with spread

A great classic: the crepe with spread. A generous, tasty crepe, ideal for a cosy moment by the fire. And why not make a homemade spread? Get cooking!

8. The chestnut cream crêpes
