Recipe of the Week

My kids are a little picky about eating eggs, so I’m always looking for ways to include more of them in their diet. Crepes are a great way, and it’s even better if you can make them with a more nutritious flour. We like to fill ours with berries and occasionally we’ll treat ourselves by adding a little
Nutella.

Spelt Crepes

6 eggs
1 1/3 cups milk
4 T butter
4 T raw honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup freshly milled spelt flour (Whole wheat would work too. I just like to mix things up with grains since we use whole wheat with so many things.)

Combine eggs, milk, butter, honey, salt,and vanilla and beat with a hand mixer until well blended. Sprinkle in the flour and beat until combined. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour or in the refrigerator overnight.

Brush butter on the bottom of the crepe pan and set to medium heat. When hot, drop 2 T batter onto pan and quickly tip to cover the entire bottom. Cook until edges start to brown, about 1 minute. Flip and cook about 30 more seconds. Transfer to a warm plate and do remaining crepes, re-buttering the pan if necessary.

    Yum! Will have to try this. Have tons of spelt and we love crepes! Never thought to use the spelt! Maybe I’ll do German pancakes with it too.
