Later during our trip I mentioned this to my cousin and she said she hadn’t tried these too. So the next day when we went out, we were on the look out for a good place which served crepes. To our bad luck all the places we came upon were closed because it was Labour Day. Definitely not the day to be looking for any place to eat!!! Before I knew, our trip had ended and I came back to
I recently decided to try making these crepes at home and thankfully they turned out well.
For the crepes:
2 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
A pinch salt
2 tbsp butter
For the filling:
3 tbsp butter
2 lemons, juiced
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup tangerine juice
½ cup Raspberries fresh/frozen
½ cup Strawberries fresh/frozen
1 small jar hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)
Confectioners' sugar, for serving
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. In a separate bowl mix the flour and salt. In a small pan over low heat melt the butter and cook it until it is light brown.
Add the egg and milk mix to the flour and salt and mix well so that there are no large clumps. Add the browned butter and mix to incorporate, being careful not to overmix batter. The batter should just coat the back of a spoon. If seems too thick, thin it out with a little more milk or water. Let the batter rest for 1 hour prior to making crepes.
Peel bananas, cut into big bits.In a large pan melt the butter and cook until lightly browned, add the lemon juice and sugar, stirring so that the sugar dissolves. Add the bananas and tangerine juice and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes so the flavors incorporate and the bananas are hot but not mushy. Add the raspberries and strawberries. Stir gently to combine. Set this mixture aside and let cool slightly.
Cook for about 1 minute until the bottom side is lightly browned. With your fingertips and a spatula, carefully flip crepe and cook the second side for about 15 seconds. Remove crepes and continue with remaining batter.
Lay the crepes out on a flat surface. Spread each crepe with about 1 tablespoon of hazelnut spread.
In one fourth of the crepe, spoon about 2 tablespoons of the banana mixture and fold the crepe over in half and in half again so that it has a triangular shape. Repeat this with all of the crepes.
Serve the crepes on a plate with the sauce spooned over the top and sprinkled with the confectioners' sugar.
These crepes are very light and make a great dessert for any occasion. They are easy to make and are surely good eats with all that fruit!
