L.V. Seasonal Fruit Dessert CreΜ‚pes

Seasonal Fruit Dessert CrΓͺpes πŸ‘

We visited our local Farmer’s Market yesterday and discovered a huge selection of amazingly sweet, juicy, yellow peaches. This fabulous find led us to the obvious conclusion that there was nothing left to do but celebrate by making some peach & vanilla ice cream crΓͺpes for dessert! I assure you, it just doesn’t get much better than this…

When I was a kid, my brother Matt would bribe me with the promise of these crΓͺpes, if I would get up at 4:30AM to help him deliver the morning papers on our bikes. After finishing up the paper route, we’d whip up a quick batch and fill them with my Mom’s incredible homemade apricot preserves. Pure heaven I tell you…

Seasonal crΓͺpes can be made with apricots, peaches, nectarines, figs, mango, papaya, berries, plums or quality fruit preserves. Frequently, we toss the fruit with a splash of brandy just before placing it into the crΓͺpes.

Vanilla ice cream is always a crowd pleaser inside fruit crΓͺpes, however, whipped cream, custard or a tangy lemon sorbet are a lovely addition as well. Get creative and explore the many variations to this recipe. Enjoy!

 

Seasonal Fruit Dessert CrΓͺpes

 

Ingredients

ΒΎ cup of milk

2 eggs

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

Β½ cup flour

Seasonal fruit

1 tablespoon of brandy (optional)

Confectioners sugar

Sweet butter or non-stick spray for skillet

 

Preparation

Cut up fruit into 1 Β½ -inch pieces. If adding brandy, gently stir into fruit without mashing or bruising.

Combine milk, eggs and vanilla in a blender. Beat on high for 15-seconds. Add sugar and flour, mix until batter is smooth.

Preheat oven to 225 degrees

Heat 10-inch non-stick skillet to medium. You may wish to add butter or non-stick spray to pan. (I like to use coconut oil spray because it transfers the wonderful, deep flavor of coconut and has a higher burn rate capacity than butter.) With a ladle pour about ΒΌ cup of batter into pan and quickly tilt pan to coat bottom evenly.

Cook until the underside is a light golden color, approx. 1Β½ to 2-minutes. Shake to pan quickly to loosen the crΓͺpe, then flip with a spatula. Cook for 45-seconds or so, just until golden, then transfer crΓͺpe to oven-proof plate. Repeat until you have cooked the desired number of crΓͺpes.

Remove from oven, place fruit or preserves into ΒΌ of crΓͺpe, add ice cream, fold into wedge and gently dust with confectioners sugar. Serve immediately.
