This is what we had for brunch today after our morning hike. I filled the first two crepes with a mixture of sautéed ham and mushrooms then added mozzarella and asiago cheese and a pinch of dried basil. I served these with a side of salad. The remaining crepes were enjoyed sweetened with an assortment of our homemade fruit syrups. Delicious!
1 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil for the pan
Stir flour and salt together in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and a little of the milk. Beat well, working in all of the flour. Gradually add the remaining milk and beat mixture until bubbles form on top of the batter.
Over medium high heat, brush a small amount of oil onto a crepe pan (or nonstick pan). Add three to four tablespoons of the batter and quickly tilt the pan to move the batter around in a circle until it covers the base of the pan thinly and evenly. Turn the crepe over and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Keep crepes in a warm oven under a clean tea towel. Continue until all of the batter is used. Serve with a sweet or savory topping. Makes 8 crepes.
