Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crepes:
  2. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and add eggs and milk, beating together until smooth.
  3. Pour into a jug and stand for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a small crêpe or frying pan and brush with a little melted butter.
  5. Tilt the pan slightly and pour in enough batter to just cover the base and cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat until the surface of the crêpe starts to ‘dry out’.
  6. Carefully flip the crêpe to brown the other side and transfer to a plate. Place a layer of greaseproof paper between each crêpe to stop them sticking together.
  7. Maple and Orange Sauce:
  8. In a saucepan heat the maple syrup, butter, orange zest and juice and bring to a boil and continue cooking until the sauce is reduced by one third.
  9. Then remove the pot from the heat and stir in the brandy.
  10. To serve, fold the crêpes into quarters and place on a serving platter, pour the syrup over the sauce and serve with ice cream.
