  • Pinch salt
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup brie, diced
  • To serve

Method

  • Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and a little milk. Beat until a smooth paste is formed then add the remaining milk and butter, leave to stand 30 mins.

  • Heat a little oil in a 15cm (6 in) omelette pan, pour in 2tbsp of batter and tilt to coat the bottom evenly. Cook over a high heat until lightly brown underneath. Turn the crepe with a palette knife and cook the other side for 30 secs. Remove from the pan onto a tray and cover to keep warm then continue to make crepes until all the batter is used.

  • Fry the mushrooms and garlic then add thyme leaves, cream or crème fraîche and diced brie.
