Whey Crepes in the Thermomix

Hello Dear Reader,

My Mother in law has recently spent three weeks in hospital, she has a serious lung disease and she has really been battling of late. She eats like a baby bird but does drink loads of milk with milo mixed into it. As she went into hospital rather suddenly there were 2 X 2 litres of full cream milk in her fridge. I bought one home and froze the other for later. As we don't drink dairy milk, I made home made ricotta with both of them and in doing that I created nearly 2 litres of whey. Not that I am complaining, as whey is so super versatile and I often use it in place of milk in recipes. So that is how this little recipe came about. I think the whey make these crepes even lighter and you could use them in either savoury or sweet recipes. This time I chose sweet and served them with mixed berries, ricotta and maple syrup.

Ingredients for Whey Crepes, clockwise from top right-
1 tablespoon sugar (omit if going down the savoury road, instead add a pinch of salt) 1 1/2 cups of whey, 3 eggs, 40 grams of melted butter and 1 cup plain flour 

Add all ingredients to the TM bowl 

Blitz until smooth and silky. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour 

Cook crepes in the usual way, in a lightly buttered non stick, heavy based fry pan. I served ours with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, home made ricotta and maple syrup. Utterly delicious 

So, tell me, how do you use up excess milk?
