clătite a.k.a. crepe suzette

“Clătite” is a Romanian dessert similar to crepe suzettes.

This clătite recipe is another Romanian family treasure. I recall fond memories of my Grandmother preparing these tasty treats for me as a child. This week I recaptured that tradition with my own children. My children could not get enough – even after making 106 crepes! My son Sander, who is four years old, told me that there were people outside cheering for my crepes (this was really his sweet way of asking me to make more crepes for him).

The traditional way to serve clatites is to sprinkle regular table sugar on them while they are still warm. Roll them into logs and enjoy!


2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt


Place all ingredients into a blender and process until everything is incorporated.  Chill mixture for several hours in the refrigerator.

After the mixture has chilled in the refrigerator – heat crepe pan until hot.  Grease the pan lightly with a no-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the pan, and tilt pan to spread batter. Cook till golden brown and then flip to cook the other side.

Sprinkle with sugar and roll into logs.

Eat them while they are still hot!

Makes 6-8 crepes.

Use the above recipe to accompany the following crepe toppings and filling:

Blueberry-Cinnamon Coulis
Raspberry-Lime Coulis
Chocolate-Almond Mousse Crepe

    My dear departed Mother made clatite with a savory filling. She used a white cheese which she shredded, which I think was brick cheese. I cannot get brick cheese here, but havarti with dill is the exact same thing, flavor-wise, that I remember. She would make the clatite and fill them with the shredded cheese and sprinkle fresh chopped dill on the filling, and roll the crepes. A very satifying brunch or lunch. Or even a Friday night supper.
