Assorted Ricotta Crepes

Crepe is a thin pancake, a meal made of wheat popular throughout Europe and elsewhere. The common ingredients include flour, eggs, milk, butter and a pinch of salt. Crepes are usually of two types: sweet crepe made with wheat flour, and savory galettes made with buckwheat flour.

So for dinner, I decided to make both savory and Sweet Crepe using the Ricotta Cheese that I made. For the savory type, I wrapped honey ham with some ricotta and serve with some cherry tomato and avocado slices over some Caesar Dressing. While for the sweet dessert crepes, I used the filling with the mixture of some lemon juice, lemon rind, icing sugar, blueberries and some ricotta. Then I serve it with some melted dark chocolate and icing sugar.

Ingredients For Crepe: (make 8)
1 Cup Plain Flour
2 Medium Eggs
Pinch Of Salt
1 1/2 Cup Buttermilk/Fresh Milk
1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil/Olive Oil

1. Lightly whisk the egg in a mixing bowl, then slowly whisk in the buttermilk till combine.
2. Add the salt and slowly add in the flour and whisk till all the flour had used all and the mixture is smooth without any dry ingredients.
3. Add in the oil and stir well.
4. Or you can blend all the ingredients in a food processor till combined.
5. Chill for at least 1 hour or you can prepare up to 1 day ahead.
6. Preheat and grease the pan, then stir the batter a while and scoop about 1/3 cup each time and swirl to fry into a thin crepe. Posted by Picasa
