buckwheat spelt crepes

crepes for a rainy day. buckwheat is awesome, it contains some magical chemicals that have been shown to help people with diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome.   serve with a little golden syrup for some edible sunshine (and if you’re not worried about type 2 diabetes).

  • 1 cup milk or milk alternative
  • 3 or 4 eggs
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup spelt flour
  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (omit if making savory crepes) or sugar substitute (honey, agave, etc.)
  • oil or butter for the skillet

Beat the eggs medium-size bowl. Whisk in the milk, water, and salt. In a separate bowl combine the spelt and buckwheat flour. Whisk in the liquid ingredients.

Heat a nonstick crepe pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Coat the pan with  oil. Stir the crepe batter and pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the center of the hot pan, swirling the pan so the bottom is evenly coated with batter. Cook the crepe until the top appears dry, about 1 minute. If the first crepe looks too thick, thin the batter with a tablespoon or two of water. Using a small spatula, gently lift the crepe, flip it, then cook another 40-60 seconds.

  1. This is a great idea – they sell Sarrasin flour at our local grocery store. It is what is typically used to make crepes in Normandy. They are so yummy! You are so French without even realizing it!

    (en plus, if you guys ever need a place to crash in Paris….we have enough space…and all the musical instruments that anyone wants to play. we even have jam sessions at our house in the summer…does that tempt you!?)

  2. ooh, I am totally there. like yesterday!
    there’s actually a chance we’ll be in England late summer/early fall (my father and his family are british).. maybe we can get on the chunnel for a visit. that would be amazing for sure. :)
