Homemade Whole Wheat Crepes Recipe
This Homemade Whole Wheat Crepe Recipe is a twist from the traditional crepe that is made it France. After watching crepes made first-hand at a Creperie on the streets of France, I have finally figured it out. This recipe uses whole wheat and eggs, but the result is a delicious and healthy crepe, which can be used as the base for several sweet and savoury varieties of crepes. Delicious, healthy and versatile, crepes are an excellent breakfast as well as brunch option.
- 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 teaspoon Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 pinch Salt
- 2 Whole Eggs
How to make Homemade Whole Wheat Crepes Recipe
To begin making the whole wheat crepe recipe, first blend all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth.
Then strain the crepe mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Pouring the mix into a tall jug makes it easier to portion out the batter when making crepes on a hot pan.
Allow the crepe batter to rest at room temperature for about 15 to 20 minutes. This makes the crepes soft and fluffy.
To begin making the crepes, warm a crepe pan with a rim on a medium heat. Butter or oil it evenly. When the pan gets hot, pour just enough batter to cover the base, and start tilting and swirling the pan to spread the batter and make a thin film on the surface of the pan. This film should be as thin as possible, and if there is excess batter pour it back into the jug.
Once you make a couple of crepes, you will understand how much batter your need to pour for a single crepe. You could also use a measuring cup to pour the batter, so that way the subsequent times you will get it just right. These crepes gets cooked really quick and you need to cook it just until the bottom begins to get a little golden, then gently lift the edges and flip the crepe to cook on the other side for a few seconds.
Transfer the prepared whole wheat crepes to a platter and cover with a dome lid to keep warm and soft. Proceed the same way with the remaining batter and stack the crepes one on top of the other. Serve the crepes as desired. They can be used as the base for several sweet and savoury varieties of crepes and make excellent breakfast as well as brunch options.
