My MIL just gave me a crepe maker and a stack of recipes this is one of them.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
Orange Butter Sauce
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 orange, zest of (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup Grand Marnier, plus
- 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, divided
- 2 tablespoons cognac
- To make crepes,combine flour, sugar and salt in a food processor and process briefly. With motor running, add milk, water, eggs and butter through feed tube. Process until smooth. Let stand 30 minutes before using.
- Make crepes as directed:.
- IF your pan is not nonstick, film it with a light coat of butter or oil. Heat until you hold your hand an inch away and feel the heat, then ladle in a small amount of batter, about 2 Tablespoons.
- Lift the pan and rotate it, swirling a thin, even coating of patter all over the pan. Keep swirling until the batter stops moving.
- Set the pan on the burner and cook about 15 seconds, until the top is dry. Using a thin spatula, lift one edge. Using your fingers if necessary , lift the crepe and turn it over, then use your fingers to nudge out any wrinkles.
- Cook until the crepe moves when you jerk the pan. Slip out onto waxed paper.
- Orange Butter Sauce:.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, combine butter, oj, sugar, lemon juice and orange zest, if using.
- Bring to a boil, stirring to melt sugar, then boil until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in 2 T Grand Marnier and cognac. Return to boil for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
- One by one, place a crepe in the sauce and turn it over to coat. Fold crepe in half, then in quarters. Place on warmed plate with point toward the middle.
- continue with each crepe, overlapping each one slightly.
- Spoon extra sauce over the crepes.
- Heat 1/2 c Grand Marnier briefly in a microwave or in a ladle held over burner. Pour over crepes and ignite with a long handled match, or light in ladle and pour flaming liquor over the crepes.
- Serve immediately when flames die.
I was very happy with this recipe. I used Brandy instead of the Grand Marnier in the sauce and didn't use the lemon juice or cognac.
Very good and quite easy to make
