Recipe “Buckwheat Crêpes”

Ingredients

1 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup milk
1 cup water
2 eggs
2 Tbsp butter, melted

How to do

  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients Let the batter rest for at least an hour.
  2. Lightly oil or butter an 8- or 10-inch nonstick skillet and place over medium heat. 
  3. Pour a couple of tablespoons of batter into the skillet. Swirl it around so that it forms a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. (If the crêpes doesn’t get thin enough, add a little more milk to the batter.)
  4. When the top of the crêpes is dry, after about a minute, flip and cook the other side for 15 to 30 seconds. (The crêpes should brown only very slightly and not be at all crisp.)
  5. Stack the crêpes on a plate as you make them. You can keep them warm in a low oven while you make the remaining crêpes. Or freeze the leftover crêpes, separating each crêpes with a piece of parchment paper.

    Makes about 16 crêpes.

Recipe “A Healthier Carrot Cake”

Ingredients

Serves 6-8
3 eggs
1-2 bananas
10-15 fresh dates (without seeds)
6 tbsp sunflower oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cardamom
3-4 carrots (medium size, grated)
½ cup coconut flakes
½ cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
1/2 cup raisins

Glazing
200 g cream cheese
3 tbsp honey
1/2 lime (juice)

1/2 cup hazelnuts

How to do

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Whisk the eggs in a medium sized bowl. Use a hand blender or a blender to mix bananas, dates and oil into a thick cream in another bowl. Sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom and stir it together with the eggs and the banana-cream. Add grated carrots, coconut flakes, walnuts and raisins and stir it until it all comes together.
Pour it into a cake pan and bake for about 40 minutes. Try to stick a toothpick in the centre of the cake, when nothing sticks on it the cake is ready. Let it cool.
Whip together the cream cheese and the honey (bananas or dates would probably also work as sweeteners for the frosting). Add the frosting when the cake is completely cooled of. Serve with roughly chopped hazelnuts or walnuts on the top.
