Happy Friday! You will be happy to hear that my family is feeling much better this week. Thankfully our colds were pretty mild and we recovered quickly.
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was a real treat! We made crepes! The official name of the recipe is Butter and Rum Crepes, Fancy and Plain. I believe the “fancy or plain” designation comes from whether you make the sauce or serve them plain. You can also optionally fill the crepes with lemon curd (I did not).
Rather than making basic crepe batter, this recipe gives the crepes a bit of flavor with the addition of lemon and orange zest, and a splash of rum. The sauce is made from honey, orange juice, lemon juice, and butter. I served the crepes with vanilla ice cream, just because it sounded good.
I loved these crepes! I enjoyed the subtle citrus flavor of the crepes, and the honey-citrus-butter sauce was so delicious. I even got to dust off my hardly-used crepe pan! Eating these made me wonder why I don’t make crepes more often; they are easy to make and so yummy.
My husband thought these were OK. I think he would have liked them better with chocolate sauce rather than the honey-citrus sauce. My daughter ate one plain (with a bit of sugar) and she really enjoyed it.
Semi-off-topic question: How do you all take photos with spoons in them and NOT catch yourself in the reflection of the spoon?
I hope you all have a great weekend!
