Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet or savoury, the main difference is the flour used (plain flour or buckwheat flour respectively). They may then be rolled or folded, and filled with different ingredients. Depending on the filling ingredients, filled crêpes can be either a dessert dish or a main course.

Why are my crepes rubbery?
There are two reasons for crepes turning out rubbery – too much gluten (flour), or cooking the crepes too slow.
