Today I want to share the dessert I made for my Parisienne Luncheon in Pink and Black.
These really are easy to put together but the separate components need to be done in advance. I prefer recipes for my luncheons to be done as much as possible before the event.
Dessert Crepes with Vanilla Filling, Strawberries, Whipped Cream & Chocolate Drizzle
Note: I put these together right before serving them after we finished the main course.
It was very fast and easy, but then I was only serving 6. If it is a large group then
put them together way before the party cover and chill.
The Crepes (make these ahead)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
2-3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a blender, put eggs, milk, melted butter, flour, sugar, vanilla and salt and blend about 30 seconds until smooth. Pour into a shallow wide dish if using an electric crepe pan. Let the batter sit for about 15 minutes. Follow manufacturers instructions for making the crepes.
Heat a small sized 6-7 inch skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Spray pan with cooking spray or butter pan with a small amount of butter or oil applied with a brush or paper towel. Spoon about ¼ cup crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes on a side, or until golden brown. Carefully remove from pan and place between layers of waxed paper. Serve immediately or cool until ready to use. At this point wrap crepes and refrigerate until ready to use. (See to assemble crepes below.)
