    About this recipe: This is a deliciously indulgent recipe, combining creamy Gorgonzola Dolce, mascarpone and chopped walnuts with a cheeky drop or two of Cognac to give your crêpes an extra kick! The crêpes are made with whole grain flour though so you won't have to feel too guilty about their filling! If you prefer, use half plain, half whole grain flour.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • For the crêpes
    • 100g whole grain flour
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 large egg
    • 300ml milk
    • oil or butter for frying
    • For the filling
    • 200g Gorgonzola Dolce cheese
    • 100g mascarpone cheese
    • 2 tablespoons Cognac (optional)
    • 40g chopped walnuts

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Make the crêpes by sifting the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Create a well in the centre with the spoon, crack the egg into the well and add half of the milk. Whisk together, gradually mixing in the flour until it forms a smooth paste then slowly add the remainder of milk. Beat well to remove any lumps.
    2. Heat a little oil or butter in a medium frying pan. Pour a couple of tablespoons of batter into the pan, until the batter thinly coats the base. Cook over a moderate heat for 30 seconds to one minute until golden brown underneath.
    3. Toss the crêpe or flip it over with a palette knife, and cook the other side until it is golden brown too. Slide it out of the pan on to a plate, heat a little more oil or butter and then cook the crêpes one at a time in the same way.
    4. Stack the crêpes and keep them warm in the oven until they are all ready.
    5. In a pan mix the cheeses and the Cognac. Add the walnuts and spread this mixture onto the warm crêpes.
    6. Roll up the crêpes or fold them into four and place in a baking tin, heat in a low temperature oven for 5 minutes just before serving.

    Tip

    Crêpes can be prepared in advance and filled and warmed in the oven just before serving making them an easy lunch or supper and great for a stress-free dinner party.
