Nutty Crêpes

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 174


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons melted butter


1. Sift the all purpose flour into a bowl stir in the whole wheat flour.
2. Make a well in the center of the flours. Add the salt and half of the milk, whisking to make a smooth batter.
3. Whisk in the eggs, being careful to not overbeat the batter. Stir in half of the remaining milk and the melted butter.
4. Cover and let the batter rest for 1 to 2 hours.
5. Just before cooking, stir in the remaining milk, adding more if necessary, so that the batter is the consistency of thin cream.
6. Heat an 8" crêpe pan or skillet over med-high heat. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the pan if they sizzle, the pan is ready to use. Brush with the clarified butter.
7. Using a 1/4 cup measure, fill it with batter and pour it into the skillet. Immediately pick up the pan and tilt and swirl it so that the batter covers the entire bottom of the pan. Pour any excess batter back
into the bowl.
8. Loosen the edges of the crêpe with a metal spatula. You can use a spatula to turn the crêpe, but I usually turn it with my fingers. Using both hands, pick up the loosened edges with my thumb and index
finger and quickly flip it over.
9. Cook on the other side until lightly golden (usually less than a minute) and slide it out onto a plate. Cover with waxed paper. Repeat with the remaining batter.

To Serve:
These crêpes may be filled with either sweet or savory fillings. Try ham and cheese or just a simple squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle of sugar.
