  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 1/3 cup water
  • salt to taste


  • Add the buckwheat flour, eggs, milk, salt, and 1 tbsp of butter to a blender. On a low setting, blend for 30 seconds. You can also whisk it in a large bowl. 
  • Now add the water and mix again. Keep the batter aside for a couple of hours, or even better, overnight. 
  • When you are ready to make the crepes, prep a non-stick pan or crepe with melted butter and warm the pan. Pour the batter to make a thin crepe and swirl the pan so that the batter covers all sides. If you are using an electric crepe maker, follow the instructions and swirl it. 
  • Cook for two minutes, or until the surface has dried. You may see that the edges of the crepe begin to curl up slightly. Use a thin spatula to lift the crepe from the pan.

  • Transfer the crepes to a plate and cover with a towel to keep them warm. You can also keep them in the oven if you are making a big stack of crepes. 
  • Traditionally, crepes are served with cream and butter. You can also sprinkle icing sugar and berries on it. Enjoy!
