Crêpes Traditionelle

Serves 4


We've made these delicious crepes with buckwheat using Dualit's Hand Mixer, however if you want to stick to traditional crêpes then follow our Perfect Pancake Recipe.


  1. Whisk together the buckwheat flour, plain flour, eggs, milk and salt

  2. Cover and leave overnight

  3. Heat a frying pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat, drizzle in a teaspoon of melted butter and wipe it over the base with kitchen paper

  4. Drop a small ladleful of pancake batter into the pan, swirling so it coats the base evenly in a thin layer

  5. Cook for 2 minutes or until the underside is golden, then flip and cook on the other side for a minute or so

  6. Remove to a warm plate and repeat

  7. Stack the crêpes between layers of baking parchment as you go, keeping them warm in a low oven

  8. To serve, spread the crêpes with the soft cheese

  9. Spoon the fig conserve on top and spread evenly

  10. Top with a slice of ham, a sprinkling of grated cheese, a little pickled onion and a handful of baby leaves

  11. Roll or fold the crêpes and enjoy cold or warmed through in a hot oven for 5 minutes


Chef's tip

If serving the crêpes warm, try adding a small, softly fried egg on top
