Buckwheat Brunch Crepes Recipe

My husband and I enjoy these delicious crepes with sweet berry sauce and cream on Saturday mornings or even at supper time with sausage and eggs. They're considered a delicacy here, especially with a drizzle of maple syrup. -Sharon Dyck Roxton Falls, Quebec
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 5 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons buckwheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup fresh raspberries
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form; fold into sour cream. Cover and refrigerate. In a large bowl, combine the milk and eggs. Combine flours and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt; stir in water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add berries; cook over medium-low heat until berries burst. Add 1-1/2 teaspoons butter and lemon juice, stirring until butter is melted. Set aside and keep warm.
  • 3. Heat 1 teaspoon butter in an 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, adding butter to skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • 4. Serve crepes with berry sauce and cream mixture. Yield: about 6 crepes.

"I made the crepes, filled w/ a pecan praline and banana filling versus the fruit. Oh my goodness! The crepes were excellent; this is the best recipe."
