This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was butter and rum crêpes (p 411) which Mr Neil will be surprised to read, since his crêpes contained neither butter, nor rum 😉 I made the executive decision, that at the end of a long weekend that had included snowshoeing around a vineyard and tasting wine as well as eating lamington-cream puffs, that we didn’t really need buttery, alcoholic crêpes 😉 So, I made crêpes. And really I don’t think anyone can complain when they are served a plate of crêpes sprinkled with a little sugar and citrus zest, right? I was most curious to try Dorie’s recipe (it’s got a little zest in the actual batter) as a good crêpe batter recipe is hard to find. I’m pleased to report that this one was a winner AND it made the exact amount the recipe specified (of course I halved it – 5 crêpes is plenty for 2 people!). Even sans proper crêpe pan, these came out lovely and thin, I was pretty pleased. And actually, good to know – we didn’t eat these right away (gotta get them photographed in the daylight though!) and they were not bad re-heated for a few minutes wrapped in foil in a hot oven. So, a week of great discoveries!
