This fresh orange dessert crepe is a perfect sweet and zesty meal finisher. I first made this last summer for a dinner with extended family.
I should have tripled the batch, my double batch was gone before I could try it!
It takes a solid crepe batter base and adds in some real punch providing a truly memorable dish.
Fresh oranges don’t quite work as well as concentrate, so try not to sub that. And with the triple sec (can sub Cointreau) it is an awesome dessert crepe.
Orange Dessert Crepes
- 6-7" Frying Pan
- 3 Eggs
- 2 tbs Melted Butter
- ¼ Cup Orange Juice Concentrate Undiluted
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 tbs Triple Sec Can substitute Cointreau
- 1 Cup Flour
- 2 tbs Sugar
- Dash Salt
- Combine your ingredients in your blender. Cover and blend for about twenty or thirty seconds. Use your spatula to scrape down the sides of your blender and process again for about five seconds. Your batter should be consistent and smooth.
- Spray your frying pan. Heat it to medium low heat.
- Add a half tablespoon of batter to test. Tilt your pan around in a circular motion. You batter should move around smoothly. If it does remove test batter from your pan.
- For each crepe add three to four tablespoons of batter to your heated frying pan. It should thinly coat the entire bottom of your pan. Cook the first side for about one minute.
- Once your crepe is firm enough to not break, flip it over. Cook the second side for about one minute. Your crepe is done once light brown flecks form. Remove from heat and repeat.
- Optional: Add additional ingredients such as orange slices, orange sauce or any other favorite filling and fold your crepe.
- Serve and enjoy!
- Batter can be prepared ahead of time. Simply refrigerate batter for up to three days.
- Cooked crepes can be frozen in freezer safe bags. To reheat simply place in oven for about seven minutes at 350 degrees.
- Experiment with different fillings and toppings. The orange flavor is fresh and goes great with other fruits and creams.
My family loves adding whipped cream to their orange dessert crepes. I also really enjoy a scoop of ice cream on a freshly cooked crepe.
Feel free to add chocolate or other fruits as well. These orange crepes take very well to experimentation and they are so good you’d have a hard time messing them up.
If you want to serve these at a party be prepared to make a large batch. They are always a crowd pleaser and they go fast!
