Here is a recipe that can be served as desert or can be served as breakfast for a lazy Sunday morning. There is nothing like the aroma of apples cooked with a hint of cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Use Granny Smith apples for a tart filling or MacIntosh or Cortland for a not-so-tart treat. You can have it plain or you add cranberries (or use dried cranberries plumped up in warm water for 20 minutes). Dust with a little icing sugar and serve with a drizzle of real maple syrup for a tasty treat!
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 2⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 8 apples, cored, peeled and sliced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- In a bowl, beat the 2 tablespoons of melted butter, milk, flour, salt and eggs together until smooth. Set aside for at least 1/2 hour, preferrably 2 hours to allow flour to absorb milk and thicken up.
- Meanwhile, core, peel and slice apples. Place the second amount of butter into a pan along with the remaining ingredients. Saute un medium low heat until soft and slightly brown. Set aside and keep warm on minimum heat.
- Preheat a crepe pan or non-stick pan on medium heat. Brush butter on the bottom of the pan. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into crepe pan and tip pan to coat bottom. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the top is set and the bottom is slightly brown. Gently flip crepe and let cook for another 30 seconds and slide out onto a wax paper. Continue until all batter is used.
- Place crepe on working surface, add a two or three tablespoons of apple filling. Roll 1/2 way and tuck in ends. Finish rolling and set aside.
- Serve warm and sprinkled with confectioner's sugar if desired or vanilla ice cream if serving for desert!
This recipes was very successful. I made it for my wife and with the combination of Brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter with the apples brought a great flavor. Thank you for the recipe.
This is an excellent recipe Kim. We enjoyed these tasty apple filled crepes very much. I used spy apples and ground the spices fresh for a lovely mellow flavor. The crepes were tender, fluffy and oh so flavorful. I garnished this treat with a little icing sugar. I can't wait to try these with fresh churned vanilla bean ice cream. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that got my picky dh smiling. Made for Fall Pac - 2011.
