Healthy Milktart Crepes

Healthy Milktart Crepes have become my ultimate favorite way to eat crepes. Even though Nutella coconut filled crepes right next to the Ifle tower is hard to beat. Crepes with a view can be anyone’s favorite am I right? No matter what they taste like. Now you don”t have to go all the way to France to experience good enough crepes. I combined the much loved French dessert with a well-known favorite in South African. One thing that we have in common is that we love crepes too. I guess that I am finding more and more similarities to cure the “missing home” blues

Healthy Milktart Crepes have become my ultimate favorite way to eat crepes. Even though Nutella coconut filled crepes right next to the Ifle tower is hard to beat. Crepes with a view can be anyone’s favorite am I right? No matter what they taste like. Now you don”t have to go all the way to France to experience good enough crepes. I combined the much loved French dessert with a well-known favorite in South Africa. One thing that we have in common is that we love crepes too and they are called pannekoek, which sounds similar to pancakes. Confusing to say the least. There are so many words when directly translated that sound just bizarrely. I guess that I am finding more and more similarities to cure the “missing home” blues and Pannekoek, I mean crepes are the exact comfort I need.

These crepes can be eaten on a rainy day sprinkled with heaps of sugar and cinnamon like we like to do back in SA or they can be eaten savory with feta and spinach. They are eaten just basically anytime that you would like because they are good for you. (whilst stuffing my face with the fourth one today…) Good for your mood and blood sugar levels. Great combo I would say for any balanced “meal” if we can call it that. I used wholemeal flour with a blend of rice, wheat, barley, and rye and added quinoa flour that gave it that extra fluffy oumf that it needed since there are no eggs in the batter. While the Milktart filling added that extra distance that is needed when there is no Ilfe tower to be seen.

So why Milktart filling and what is it? It’s almost like a custard flan, but more milky and creamy. Traditionally with a butter cookie base or crushed coconut biscuits. I made a healthier version that you can find below or you can check out the traditional version that I made with a pretzel crust and creme brulée topping on my Instagram. 
There are quite a few cinnamon desserts in our South African cultures that are just absolutely unforgettable. Hope that you will fall in love with these crepes because there are a lot healthier SA recipes coming your way!

  3. Spead out the batter with a spoon and let it cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. How to make the Milktart filling: heat up the milk till boiling and then make a paste with the custard powder, cornstarch, sugar and a bit of milk.
  5. Add this to the boiling milk and whisk well, add the milk mixture back in the microwave for a few minutes stirring every now and again until thickened.
  6. Scoop the slightly cooled filling into the crepes, add extra coconut cream, sugar and extra cinnamon on top.

_MG_7513Notes:

*These crepes can be made with gluten-free flours or plain all-purpose flours if you don’t have wholemeal.

*Custard powder can be substituted with cornstarch, but I will advise adding custard powder for that caramel taste.

* These crepes can be made as pancakes too, just by adding less milk.

Hope you guys like these!
