R.E.D. BUCKWHEAT CRÊPES
Makes about 1 dozen

3/4 c all purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 eggs
3 tbsp butter, melted
2 cups milk
Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend until creamy smooth.
Wipe an 8″ non-stick pan with a greased paper towel.
Once the pan is heated pour 1/4 cup of batter in centre of pan and swirl gently to distribute.

Flip with a spatula or grab with your fingers.
The second side should be cooked in about 1/2 minute.

They are great ‘as is’ for a quick fix breakfast topped with maple syrup…
Or ‘fancied up’ wrapped around a creamy cheesy chicken concoction.

  1. Firstly Kathy I'm glad I can now comment, yay!!! And then this recipe is so creative!
    My issue with crepes is that by the time you get all of them done, the first one is cold. This is a great solution and this recipe sounds delicious. I have truly been enjoying all of your recipes. You have added to my recipe box some fabulous meals that I have not run across before. Sincerely, thank you! Sail Away Girl
