  • 1 3/4 cups sifted flour about 200g
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of anís or another liqueur like cognac, rum, brandy etc. if you prefer-- or skip this altogether to make it alcohol free!
  • Zest from 1/2 a lemon or another citrus fruit if you like to experiment
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons whole milk about 500ml


  • Beat the eggs and add the sugar, and continue beating until light and fluffy.
  • Add the liqueur (if using), milk, salt and lemon peel and continue to beat the mixture.
  • Add the flour, a little at a time, until the crepe batter is uniform and there aren't any lumps.
  • Optionally, you can let the batter rest for an hour, and then strain it to make sure there aren't any lumps.
  • Using a paper towel, coat a frying pan with olive oil (just a thin layer).
  • Add a very small amount of batter to the hot pan (starting with just two tablespoons). Spread it out to completely cover the pan.
  • After about 30 seconds, it should be ready to flip.
  • When each frisuelo is cooked, put in on a large plate and sprinkle sugar on top. Layer the frisuelos on top of one another, until you've used up all of the batter!
