I’ve always refrained from making crepes because I’ve been under the impression that one needs a special crepe griddle and batter spreader to obtain that perfectly thin pancake this French treat is known for.
This Mother’s Day, I wanted to surprise my mom with her favorite dessert but I wasn’t about to spend the money and shopping time on such. So instead, I decided to develop and test a crepe batter recipe. I practiced, practiced, practiced my crepe-making skills with a good ol’ non-stick skillet and a quick swirl of the hand to evenly cook the batter to golden perfection.
With Cacique® Crema Mexicana, I was able to create some of the best crepes I’ve ever tasted. Topped with sweet and chunky strawberry pieces, chopped pecans and a drizzle of dulce de leche or cajeta, my Mother’s Day brunch plan slowly began to take shape.
Served as part of a casual brunch menu or an elegant dessert ending to a romantic dinner, you can’t go wrong with how impressive these delicacies look to your guests. Accompany them with your choice of various spreads, nuts and fresh fruit toppings for a fun crepe party, and don’t forget to compliment the sweetness with piping hot strong black coffee.
