Ingredient Set Name: 

Buckwheat Crêpe Batter


Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup all-purpose flour
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup buckwheat flour
Ingredient Line: 
2 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup low-fat milk
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. melted butter
Ingredient Line: 
⅛ tsp. sugar

Ingredient Set Name: 

Blue Cheese Filling


Ingredient Line: 
½ cup walnuts
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
Ingredient Line: 
4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled (½ cup)


1. To make Buckwheat Crêpe Batter: Sift flours into bowl. Whisk in eggs and ¼ cup milk. Gradually stir in remaining ¾ cup milk. (Consistency will be very loose.) Stir in melted butter, sugar, and pinch of salt. Refrigerate 30 minutes, or overnight to let batter rest.

2. To make Blue Cheese Filling: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts on baking sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, or until browned and fragrant. Cool; coarsely chop.

3. Reduce oven heat to 300°F, and line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Coat 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over high heat. Ladle ¼ cup Buckwheat Crêpe Batter into skillet. Turn and tilt skillet until batter coats pan bottom evenly. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until crêpe is golden brown on bottom. Flip with spatula, then remove pan from heat. Spread 2 Tbs. applesauce over crêpe, then sprinkle with 1 heaping Tbs. blue cheese. Fold crêpe into thirds, and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining Buckwheat Crêpe Batter, applesauce, and blue cheese. Serve each crêpe garnished with toasted walnuts.
