Refrigerating Your Batter
Any leftover batter is best kept in an airtight container and then stored in the fridge. The batter will keep for about two days. If you have leftover crepes, these can also be stored in the fridge alongside the remaining batter and will keep for a few days. Simply reheat them when you’re ready to enjoy them again.
When storing extra crepes, be sure to let them cool down first before placing them into a resealable bag.
Can Crepe Batter Be Frozen?
The answer is yes! As a matter of fact, crepe batter will keep longer when frozen. If you are an avid fan of crepes and tend to eat them on a regular basis, it’s easier to make a lot of batter once and then freeze the rest of it to use when you’re ready.
When frozen, crepe batter can keep for up to three months. Before storing it, be sure that the batter has been mixed all the way with no lumps left over. You will also want to make sure that it’s at room temperature before you put it in the freezer.
Although you can store crepe batter in a regular container, it’s easier to store it in a freezer bag. When doing this, make sure that you don’t fill the bag up all the way to the top. It’s also important to keep in mind that you let out any air when freezing the batter, as this can cause the batter to dry out or bacteria to get inside of it.
The best way to make sure that your crepe batter stays fresh is to label all of the containers and bags that you use for storage. This way, you know how long something has been in the freezer.
Benefits of Freezing Crepe Batter
There are several benefits to freezing your crepe batter. As mentioned earlier, one of the benefits of freezing crepe batter is that you can make a lot of it at once and save it for later. Not to mention, it’s incredibly easy to freeze.
Another benefit is that crepe batter keeps for long periods of time, which means that you’ll always have it handy, which is great when you’re in a rush. Crepe batter can easily be thawed to use again.
Helpful Tips for Storing Crepe Batter
If you know that you will use your leftover batter in less than a day, you’re better off storing it in a freezer bag. This way, you won’t have to deal with thawing the crepe batter when you’re ready to use it the next day.
Using a storage bag is also useful because when you go to use the batter, you can easily just pour it out into the pan directly from the bag. If you were to use a storage container on the other hand, you may have to scoop it out instead.
If you know that you will be using your frozen crepe batter the next day or later that night, be sure to take it out of the freezer the day before and place it in the fridge to thaw.
