Are you ready? Let’s cook some crepes!

Preparation of the crepe batter

Bring a large salad bowl. Put the flour in it by making a small well (like when you were a child!) then break the 4 eggs and mix.
Now add the tablespoon of oil, the pinch of salt, the tablespoon of liquid vanilla, the tablespoon of rum, the tablespoon of orange blossom and the lemon zest. And yes, we know, this recipe is not very complicated, just add everything and mix!
It’s the turn of the almond milk to be incorporated into the dough. To do this, add it little by little into the preparation while continuing to stir to avoid lumps.
If you find that the dough is a little thick, just add a little water, but not too much!

Cooking crepes

Add a little fat to the bottom of your crepe pan and let each side of your crepe brown for 1 minute. You have to use professional crepe makers like those available at rollergrill-international.com for instance, they are designed for cooking traditional sweet crepes.

If you are allergic to cow’s milk, this crepe batter recipe is a very good alternative!

And as a garnish?

For gingerbread fans

Fry some gingerbread squares in a pan and add a drizzle of honey or jam to your crepe: a treat!

For gourmets

Garnish your crepe with a drizzle of hot chocolate, a scoop of ice cream (of the flavour of your choice): guaranteed return to childhood.

For those with a sweet tooth: chocolate crepe, ice cream, marshmallow, etc.

For honey fans

Mix your favourite honey with dried fruit cut into small pieces: crunchy gourmet as Cyril Lignac would say!

For fans of caramelised fruit

Put a little sugar in the bottom of a saucepan, add water or the juice of the fruit of your choice and brown it. Crush them while they are still hot and let them cool down before eating.

For chestnut fans

Let yourself be tempted by the chestnut cream. You can add some glazed chestnut chips or meringues. A delight!

For those who prefer simplicity

Nothing better than sugar, brown sugar, or vergeoise and a little whipped cream.

And for those with a sweet tooth

Why not accompany your crepe with homemade hot chocolate!
