Crepes with Brie, walnuts & honey recipe
Makes 6 crepes
- 1 cup milk
- 5 ounces flour
- 2 eggs
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 7 ounces Brie, diced
- 12 walnuts, shelled
- Dark honey (like chestnut honey or cardoon honey)
- In a bowl, mix the milk, flour, eggs, salt and melted butter. Let it rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Over low fire, in a crepe pan or regular skillet, melt a knob of butter. Swirl it around the pan to distribute well.
- Pour in some batter, swirl it around the pan to make a thin crepe. When cooked, flip it and cook the other side. Repeat to make more crepes until the batter is finished.
- In one corner of the crepe, scatter some Brie. Fold the crepe. Repeat. Transfer the crepes in a baking pan. Put a little knob of butter (the size of a tip of a teaspoon) on each crepe.
- Bake them in a preheated oven of 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted.
- Drizzle the crepes with honey. Garnish with walnuts and flaxseeds.
- Serve while still hot.
