I started making the dough with whole wheat and then realized that it was buckwheat and started again. I bought the buckwheat at a health store after some search.
I made this as dinner for 4 people so I used 310 gr. of buckwheat and 3 eggs. I only got 9 galettes, I did use a big pan.
My DH has a soft spot for pans and bought this crepe pan, which is rather big and heave but works very well. I did not get the galettes as brown as in the book.
We were four for dinner and making one galette at the time was not working so I fried the eggs in one pan and but it on the galettes after the chees had melted.
I really liked this but my kids not so much. The oldest of the bunch (22yrs) tried them with cream and jam but it did work out well as I tried to tell him.
I made them on the 14. of July or Bastille day !
To see how the others did visit:
When I go to France I always bring back some spices and soap: Here are some of the things that made it home with me:
I just love the garlic and I brought 2.5 kg back with me. I got some dried thyme from my mother in law’s garden and also bay leaves. I looked everywhere for the rose syrup and my DH found some for me at the whole food corner at the flower shop. I bought some lavender flowers but I´m not sure if I can use it for Dorie’s recipes but if not I can always use it for the great smell. I asked about and the lavender flower comes to the market at the end of July and it is small blue flowers.
