Crepes – Blackberry & Vanilla Ice Cream

image_pdf

Ah… And now for the sweet crepes. Dessert, breakfast or just because! You can use any berry in this recipe, but I used the last of the blackberries I picked in our yard.

What you need:

Sweet Crepe –

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar or flavored syrup (I used lavender syrup)

How to Do it:

Put all the ingredients in a blend and blend on high until it is well mixed. Let it sit for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Heat a crepe pan. Pour some batter into a “dipping” tray and dip the hot crepe pan into the batter. Hold for about 30 seconds, then carefully lift.

Allow the crepe to cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. It will lift easily when it’s done. Be careful not to overcook. If the edges get crispy they won’t fold right.

NOTE: the first one or two always come out weird.

Place on a plate and continue to cook until all the batter is used.

You can make your fillings now or store in an air tight container until you’re ready to use them.

(makes about 12 to 15 crepes)

What you need:

  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup lavender syrup
  • Vanilla Ice cream
  • 8 sweet crepes

How to Do it:

Start by putting 2 cups of blackberries in a sauce pan with the water, sugar and lavender syrup, then bring it to a boil and simmer until the mixture is reduced to a syrupy jam.

Add the remaining cup of berries and simmer just until they are warm and soft. Remove from the heat.

Fill each crepe with 1/8 of the mixture, saving a little for the garnish. Fold opposite end, then gently roll (sort of like a burrito).

Serve with ice cream and a little syrup drizzled over the top.

Makes about 8 crepes
