Why are my crepes chewy?
What if your crepes become rubbery? There are two reasons for crepes turning out rubbery – too much gluten (flour), or cooking the crepes too slow. Plus the resting time of 20 – 30 minutes for the batter also helps to keep the crepes soft.
What are the different types of crepes?

Crêpes can be time-consuming to make, but once you get the hang of the cooking technique and timing, they are a breeze. You can make the crêpes up to two days ahead and the filling the day before. You also can make and freeze the crêpes far in advance — they’ll keep two months in the freezer.

Refrigerate the Crepe Batter

Can you freeze chocolate filled crepes?
Yes, but I wouldn’t recommend freezing crêpes with the filling, especially if the filling is fresh fruit. Since you likely don’t have a flash freezer at home, the filling will drench the crêpe and make it soggy as it sits waiting to get frozen. Fresh fruit turns mushy when you freeze it.
When preparing crepe batter which ingredient will increase the overall richness the most?
Butter adds richness to the crepes and gives them the best flavor. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup so each crepe is the same size and thickness, and they cook at the same rate.
