Kristen Holler and Michelle Hines Abrams join Dan to make light, delicious Crepes Suzette in the Let's Eat Kitchen.
1.5 Cups Whole Milk
1 Cup Cold Water
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/4 Tsp Salt
2 Cups AP Flour
6 Tbsp Butter, Melted
6 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
Zest of 1 Orange
2/3 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
(1-2 Oranges, depending on size)
1/2 Cup Grand Marnier
2 Tbsp Cognac
Note: Do not add all liquor to the pan at once. Just a few Tbsp at a time.
For the Crepes Batter:
Whisk eggs, milk, water, vanilla & salt together
Add flour one cup at ta time and whisk until combined and without lumps
Whisk in melted butter, and whisk for 10 more seconds
Cover and let rest for at least an hour
To Make the Crepes:
Heat a crepe pan until hot, but not too hot, and spray lightly with Pam for the first use. Wipe off with a paper towel.
Ladel 2 ounces of batter and roll the crepe pan quickly to evenly spread the batter across the surface of the pan. Give a quick shake and then let it rest on the burner.
When the edges curl back just a little, flip the crepe over for just a moment. Flip onto a plate to hold while you make the rest of the crepes.
Place butter, sugar, zest, and orange juice in a sauce pan. Stir and bring to a simmer.
When you have at least 4 crepes made, add 2 Tbsp butter to a saute pan. Working quickly add a crepe, ladel a little sauce, and fold. Fold again, and keep repeating with more crepes.
Carefully add a small amount of the pan and set alight. Slide crepes onto plate, and dust with powdered sugar to serve.
