Buckwheat CrepeS


Buckwheat crepes are a delightful and versatile dish that combines the earthy flavor of buckwheat with the light and airy texture of crepes. These crepes are not only delicious but also gluten-free, making them an excellent choice for those with dietary restrictions. Here's a simple recipe for making buckwheat crepes in just five easy steps.


1. 1 cup buckwheat flour 2. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 3. 2 large egg 4. 1 1/2 cups milk 5. 1/2 teaspoon salt 6. 2 tablespoons melted butter (for batter) 7. Additional butter (for greasing the pan)



In a mixing bowl, combine the buckwheat flour, all-purpose flour, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring continuously to avoid lumps. Once well combined, add the melted butter and mix until you have a smooth batter.


Step 1

Allow the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes. This step is crucial as it allows the flour to absorb the liquid, resulting in a smoother and more elastic batter. You can cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature.


Step 2

Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter to coat the pan. Make sure the pan is hot before moving on to the next step.


Step 3

Pour a ladleful of batter into the center of the hot pan, swirling it around to spread the batter thinly and evenly. Cook for about 1-2 minutes until the edges start to crisp up and the bottom turns golden brown. Flip the crepe and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used.


Step 4

Once cooked, fill the crepes with your favorite sweet or savory fillings. Popular choices include Nutella, fresh berries, ham and cheese, or sautéed vegetables. Fold or roll the crepes, and serve them warm. Dust with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup, or add a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence.
