Thermobexta’s Spelt Crepes

crepesThis is a basic recipe that can be the base of all sorts of meals, either sweet or savoury – if making them for a savoury filling, simply omit the rapadura. They roll and fold easily and can be easily made to suit dairy intolerances.

30g butter (or coconut oil)
350g milk of your choice
3 eggs
180g unbleached white spelt flour
20g rapadura sugar (optional) – omit this if using with a savoury filling
pinch of salt
more butter (or coconut oil), for the frying pan

1. Place butter/coconut oil into mixer bowl. Melt for 1.5 minutes/70/speed 3/MC on.

2. Add milk, eggs, flour and salt. Mix for 30 seconds/speed 4/MC on.

3. Transfer batter to a bowl and refrigerate for 20 – 30 minutes (or overnight, to save time in the morning). If you don’t have time for this step, you can skip it, but you will get better results if you do refrigerate it for a little while.

4. Heat a medium sized frying pan and melt in it a little oil.

5. Measure out roughly 1/4 cup of crepe batter and pour it into the frying pan. Pick up the pan and move it in circular motions on a slight angle in order to spread the batter out until it covers approximately a 20-22cm diameter. Cook for a minute or two and turn it over when the underside starts to change colour. When both sides are cooked, slide the crepe out onto a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

6. Fill with ingredients of your choice and roll or fold and enjoy!
