Spelt Crepes

Ultra-thin Spelt Crepe
Spelt flour has a deep nutty flavour and produces these dark, golden pancakes. These can be enjoyed with either a savoury or sweet filling. Crepes are another name for very thin, large pancakes with a golden colour and crispy edges. Traditionally, you fold them into a pocket and add the filling of your choice. Here, we have gone with classic lemon and sugar which works a treat (Although instead we used xylitol which is a granular, low GI natural sugar substitute (behaves and tastes just like caster sugar). Chestnuts, Chanterelle mushrooms and Tsuyu Seasoning would work really well here too.
