Sundae Crêpes: Blackberry Lemon

Gabriel and I stayed in all weekend. We played Super Mario Wii until I developed carpal tunnel. We enjoyed strawberry crêpes on Saturday, and blackberry lemon crêpes on Sunday. Gabriel told jokes, and I giggled.

We developed a new tradition: Sundae Crêpes.

Blackberry Lemon Crêpes

Lemon Curd
1 tablespoon lemon zest
4 tablespoons lemon juice
¾ cup butter
2 cups of sugar
In a double boiler, stir over low heat just until sugar is dissolved

Add 3 eggs
Stir consistently until mixture is clear and glossy and coats the backof a spoon
Strain and chill

Blackberry Purée
½ cup partially mashed blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
Stir to blend

Crêpes:
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
Whisk milk and eggs until frothy

Add
1 Tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup flour
Dash of salt
Whisk together until smooth
Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes

In a well buttered crêpe or round pan, pour a few tablespoons of mixture over med heat
Spread thin
Allow to cook for a few minutes,
Flip over, repeat on opposite side
Remove crêpe and add a dab of butter, allow to melt

  1. I can't think of a better tradition than Sunday crepes! Especially if they look and taste like these! Are you sticking with sweet? Or are we going to see some savory too?

  2. Oh how I love crepes. This year, National Crepe day is Feb. 2 – I think I just might make this recipe! …seeing that it is my birthday and I can do whatever I want! 🙂
