Orange Crepe Suzette

Orange Crepe Suzette

Did you know we serve crepes at A Spot For Tea? Does anyone remember The Magic Pan in 50 Penn Place? It was one of my favorite restaurants.

We serve Orange Crepe Suzette, Strawberry Crepes and Sugar-Free Apple Cinnamon Crepes.

Crepe Suzette is a typical French dessert, consisting of a crepe with a hot sauce of caramelized sugar, orange juice, lightly grated orange peel and liqueur (usually Grand Marnier) on top.

Our crepes are $4.50 each and are delicious.

Basic Crepe Recipe
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.
