Good morning… or it still feels like morning here. In fact, it’s 4 pm, but time seems to have no meaning on the weekends in winter. Today is also my last day on a long holiday since tomorrow I will have to get back to be a busy bee that has to wake up at 6 am to pack lunch box or my little bee. So this is kind of a farewell party of my lazy days.
And what is more appropriate to use to celebrate this kind of occasion? A warm buttery crepe filled with sweetest hot apple perhaps? Yes!
So I whip you some batter and pour it in a hot pan. Ah, I love the smell of butter.
While I’m making crepe in one pan, another pan has chopped apple, sugar and butter in it. That smell of cooked apple makes me feel like a kid.
We have this for lunch… and little more of it a bit after that. Would you like some chocolate sauce on it?
Apple Filled Crepe
1 cup flour
2 large eggs
¾ cup milk
1/4 cup water
3 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
To make crepe…
In a large bowl, whisk butter, sugar, vanilla essence, eggs, water and milk together until smooth.
Add flour and stir until combined. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes.
Grease a large pan and place it over medium heat. When the pan is hot, pour about ¼ cup of batter onto the pan. Tilt the pan with circular motion so the batter spreads evenly.
Cook the batter for 2 minutes, and turn and cook the other side. Remove the crepe from the pan and keep aside.
3 apples- peeled and chopped
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp butter
Combine butter and apple in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add sugar and stir further for 2 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved and the apple is soft. Serve hot.
Assemble the lovely Apple Filled Crepe:
While the crepes are still hot, fill them with apple sauce, roll and serve. Top with chocolate sauce or compote if you like.
