Eggless Dessert: French Crepe Recipe Recipe

This eggless crepe recipe requires less liquid than regular crepe batter, along with a bit of baking powder. You could serve them as is, or you could add your favorite filling. This time around I smothered the warm crêpe with butter, added a layer of apricot preserves, topped it with sweetened whipped cream and finished with fresh fruits.

Most French desserts contain eggs, but as I’ve mentioned in the past, one of my sisters-in-law is allergic to them. I’m always trying to find ways to make egg-free alternatives to please her sweet tooth. After many attempts, I’ve found that crêpes translate incredibly well without eggs, perhaps better than any other treat. Being able to watch her enjoying the dessert with a wide smile across her face makes it all worth it!

French Buckwheat Crepe Recipe (Galette de Sarrasin ou Galette de Ble Noir) Recipe

Galettes de sarrasin, also known as galettes de blé noir, are savory crêpes made from buckwheat flour. They're also called crêpes bretonnes (Breton-style) as the dish originated in Brittany, France. The lacy crêpes are made in a very similar manner to sweet crêpes, but the difference is that buckwheat crêpes are cooked only one one side.

Originally, the "true" galettes were supposed to be served plain with salted butter, but these days, they're usually garnished with charcuterie meat, smoked fish, cheese or vegetables. The most popular version is called La complète which is composed of ham, emmenthal cheese and a cracked egg cooked directly on top of the galette. Another common one, La soubise, is filled with caramelized onions and salted butter. I filled mine with sautéed button mushrooms, red bell peppers and raclette cheese.

If you're only familiar with sweet crêpes, it's definitely worth giving these buckwheat crêpes a try. C'est absolument délicieux!
