Ingredients
  

Crepes

  • ½ liter whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 250 grams flour
  • 50 grams butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 grams sugar

Creme Suzette

  • 2 oranges
  • 100 grams butter
  • 100 grams sugar

Flambé

  • 30 ml Cointreau

Instructions
 

Crepes

  • Melt butter in the microwave. Set aside.
  • In a hand blender jar, add whole milk, eggs, flour, salt, sugar and the melted butter. Beat with a hand blender on medium speed until no lumps.
  • Strain the mixture and let it sit for one hour at room temperature.
  • Once the resting time is up, put a small knob of unsalted butter in a frying pan over medium high heat and, with a paper towel, spread the melted butter all over the pan.
  • With the help of a ladle, pour some crepe batter into the pan and tilt and turn the pan so that the batter is evenly distributed.
  • Let the crepe cook for about one minute. When you see it is golden brown, turn it over and wait a few seconds until the other side is also done. Remove the crepe from the heat and start again with another one.

Creme Suzette

  • Peel and cut the skin of an orange very thinly and then, with 2 oranges, make a juice.
  • In a frying pan over medium heat, add sugar and butter. When it starts to change color, pour in the orange juice and the cut orange peel.
  • When sauce starts to thicken, it is time to dip your crepes in the sauce. Soak each crepe in the sauce and then fold them twice.

Flambé

  • With the hood off, drizzle a splash of Cointreau over the crepes and flambé. Et voilà! You have just made delicious crepes suzettes.
