April 28th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 8


2 cups blackberries
½ cup turbinado sugar
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
2 cups 2% milk
1 tablespoon sugar in the raw
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ cup buckwheat flour
¾ cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon golden flaxseeds
3 eggs
Basil Sweet Cream (recipe follows)


In a medium bowl mix the sugar, basil and blackberries and let stand. Whisk together all ingredients until a smooth batter is formed. Batter will be much thinner than pancake batter. Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until coled before making crepes. Lightly grease a non-stick griddle pan and place over high heat. Making sure pan is very hot, pour batter to form a 7 inch circle. When crepe is cooked on one side, about 15 to 30 seconds, flip and cook on opposite side. Repeat until all batter is used. Place a few spoonfuls of the blackberry mixture on the center of a crepe and fold over into a square or just a roll up. Drizzle some basil sweet cream over the top of the creme.
