Directions

  1. Crepes: Whisk together or combine the flour, eggs, milk and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend just until smooth.
  2. Add melted butter and combine. The batter should be the consistency of light cream.
  3. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Lightly oil 1 (6-inch) crepe pan and set over medium heat.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into pan and swirl until the pan is coated. Cook crepes until the top begins to look dry, about 60 seconds.
  6. Turn and cook the other side 30 seconds, wiping the pan with an oiled paper towel if crepes begin to stick.
  7. Sauce: In large skillet, melt the butter. When foamy, add sugar and stir until dissolved.
  8. Add rind and juice; bring to a simmer. Turn heat to lowest settings.
  9. Fold each crepe in half and place 2 at a time in the warm sauce. Using tongs or spatula, fold crepes in half again.
  10. Repeat until all crepes have been added. Work quickly so the first crepes do not absorb all the sauce.
  11. Warm liqueur briefly and pour over the pan of crepes. Using a long match, ignite the sauce. Remove pan from heat. When flames subside, place crepes on dessert plates.
  12. Dust with confectioners sugar; garnish with orange slices and serve.

We had this for Mother's Day and it was wonderful. My children made it (with the help of Dad and Pop). It was very tasty. They used Triple Sec for the liqueur. A sprinkling of powdered sugar and orange zest and they looked as good as they tasted!! I will make again. We made the whole recipe for the 7 of us and only had one left over. As for the time it took. They made the crepes before dinner and that took about 15 minutes. Then right before serving they made the sauce and it took only 2-3 minutes to put together. Maybe 20 minutes from start to finish if you are making homemade crepes.

I did not make the crepes using this recipe (I have my own), but I did use the sauce recipe for making the dessert. Oh, it is very good! My only change was to also add the sections from a second orange-cut out of their "cells" - and another tbsp of sugar to give the sauce a little more body. Yum, an easy dessert that comes together very quickly if you prepare the crepes well in advance.
