Paper-thin crepes are improved upon health-wise with blackberries; this fruit is among the most fiber-rich you'll find and is a good source of vitamin C. Buttermilk -- a lower-fat alternative to heavy cream -- provides the base for the filling.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Make the cheese: Line a large fine sieve with 3 layers of cheesecloth, and set over a large bowl. Heat buttermilk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, without stirring, until clear liquid separates from milk at edges or a candy thermometer clipped to the edge of the pan registers 95 degrees. Reduce heat to low; cook until thermometer registers 100 degrees. Remove from heat; let stand 3 minutes. Pour into sieve; cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until thick and creamy, about 3 hours (up to overnight). Before serving, stir in confectioners' sugar.

  • Make the crepes: Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Whisk egg, egg white, milk, buttermilk, honey, and oil in another bowl; gradually add to flour mixture, whisking until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container; refrigerate 30 minutes.

  • Coat an 8-inch crepe pan with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Remove from heat; pour in 2 1/2 tablespoons batter, swirling to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, flipping once, until edges are golden and center is dry, 45 to 60 seconds per side. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Toss together berries and cassis. Let stand 15 minutes, tossing often. Divide crepes among plates. Spread each with 1/4 cup cheese. Sprinkle with berries; drizzle with juice from bowl. Dust with sugar.
