Cheese crepes

Ingredients

100g plain flour

2 free-range eggs

300ml semi-skimmed milk

25g unsalted butter

1 tbsp vegetable oil

100g Isle of Mull Cheddar

How to make it

Cheese crepes are the world’s answer to whether you should have cheese, or cake for dessert (the answer is, of course, BOTH). These cheddar-filled crepes are also great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a snack, so easy to make and absolutely delicious. We use Isle of Mull Cheddar because it melts well and has a fruity, sharp, tangy flavour.

  • Sieve the flour into a large bowl
  • Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs
  • Beat the eggs with a fork, gradually incorporating the flour from the outside of the well as you mix
  • Pour in the milk, whilst whisking, until the batter is smooth
  • Stir in the melted butter
  • Cover with a cloth and leave to rest
  • Cut large slices of Isle of Mull Cheddar, a big lump about 1/2 cm in width is needed for each serving
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add a knob of butter
  • When the butter has melted, spoon some of the batter into the pan
  • Swirl the pan around until the batter has coated the bottom
  • Cook for 1–2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown
  • Place the chunk of cheese in the middle of the pancake and fold the pancake over until the cheese is wrapped up
  • Leave until the cheddar has melted nicely
  • Repeat with the remaining batter
  • Serve the cheese crepes warm, with a sprinkling of icing sugar if you want to look fancy.
