Whole Wheat Crepes Filled with Sweetened Ricotta Cheese & Cinnamon Apples

By: The Food Hunter

This year for Mother's Day, instead of buying mom a plant, I decided I would invite her over for brunch. I was recently sent a Lagrange Crepe & Griddle Set, so crepes will definitely be on the menu.

The Lagrange crepe set is a multi-functional machine that produces both large and small round crepes in addition to several fun shapes. This unique machine doubles as a griddle in case you want to cook eggs, bacon or other breakfast fare on the side.

I spent several weeks leading up to Mother's Day testing the crepe maker and several recipes. I finally settled on whole wheat crepes filled with sweetened ricotta cheese and cinnamon apples.

Whole Wheat Crepes Filled with Sweetened Ricotta Cheese & Cinnamon Apples

For the Crepes
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tbsp. oil

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients. Heat crepe maker according to directions. Using the small ladle included with the crepe maker pour some batter slowly onto the buttered griddle. Using the spreading tool included spread the batter thin. Cook about 3 minutes and lift edges slightly to see if it is starting to brown. If so flip and cook again on the other side.

Place the cooked crepe on a plate, spread with the ricotta, top with the apples and roll. You can serve them with extra apples on the side.

For the Ricotta Filling
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons cream
2-3 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

For the Cinnamon Apples
2 apples
a pat of butter
1-2 teaspoons sugar
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon

Cut & peel apples and place in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer with the lid on for 15 minutes or until apples are tender.
