Ingredients
 

  • 100 g plain flour
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 200 ml milk approx.
  • 25 g melted, salted butter
  • finely grated zest of an orange
  • 1 pinch each of caster sugar and salt
  • oil, for greasing

For the Filling

  • 250 g caster sugar
  • 100 ml fresh orange juice
  • 50 ml water
  • 25 ml Brandy
  • 25 g cubed and cold salted butter
  • finely grated zest of 2 oranges

Instructions
 

  • Place the flour into a large bowl, add half the milk and eggs and beat together.
  • Slowly add the rest of the milk to make a thin batter, whisk in the melted butter, orange zest, sugar and salt.
  • To make the sauce - stir the caster sugar in a pan over low heat until the sugar turns to caramel.
  • Once the sugar is a deep colour, CAREFULLY add the orange juice and water stir carefully- you may need to stand back as it is likely to spit.
  • Re-boil and reduce until you have a nice thick sauce.
  • Once the sauce is finished, stir through the fresh orange zest, brandy and butter. Keep warm.
  • Heat a little oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan until the oil begins to smoke.
  • Pour in just enough of the batter to cover the base of the pan and cook until set and just brown on the edges.
  • Flip or turn over the crepe and cook the other side until just set.
  • Turn crepe out onto a plate and repeat to make more crepes using the remaining batter.
  • To finish, warm the sauce in a shallow sauté pan, fold the crepes into quarters and place in the hot sauce to warm through. 
  • I like to serve these with vanilla ice cream and or double cream.
