Crepes-can the batter be stored in the fridge for a few days? Better to cook extra and keep in fridge? If so, fridge or freezer and just stack them all together or do they need separated? Popping back and forth, cooking and cleaning. tia

I don't see any problems with storing batter in frig for a few days. I tend to flash freeze most things, but I have frozen stacks of crepes separated by a layer of wax paper, then just put in ziploc bag. They are pretty easy to pop apart.

Thank you, dear! I'm an early bird but morning are just too hectic with so many people here to get much done.

I think they do just fine saved in the fridge when already made up.

It is has raw eggs, I think it is safer to use within a day. Once you crack open a raw egg, the clock starts ticking. It is has baking soda/powder in it, those tend to activiate once added to the liquids so they also don't keep very well.

I have frozen ala Sassy also with good results. Time to make again - been too long!

Crepe batter unlike pancake batter needs to rest after mixing. I would think it would be safe up to 3 days refrigerated like any other batter or dough.

I have used a whisk, mixer, and a blender to make crepes and always had problems with bubbles in them, even after resting. I used my new immersion blender this time. OMG, it turned out great! Doesn't pull air into the mix, so no bubbles. I mixed by hand until until came together and 10 seconds if that with the stick blender, done.

When I make pancakes I make extra and let them cool completely on a mesh rack then pack them up and keep in fridge. Crepes would work the same.

Sassy, great tip with the immersion blender. Thanks!

As a microbiologist, I reiterate goodfoods comment about open raw eggs. Even refrigerated, any potentially harmful bacteria can grow. I would freeze, not refrigerate if its uncooked.

Thanks for the tips. Took a semester of microbiology for nursing. We all developed a complex from that class lol.

I would cook up the entire batch and then freeze the extra ones until needed in the future. Frozen pre-made crepes are easy to store.
