Buckwheat Crepes

Annalise, Completely Delicious

Recently, I was served an incredible buckwheat crepe at a fine restaurant and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since. I filled my buckwheat crepes with a sweetened Ricotta cream and topped them with macerated strawberries. A little heartier and chewier than traditional crepes, they are no less delicious.

Look for buckwheat flour in a well-stocked grocery store in the baking aisle with other specialty flours.
