We love crêpes, easy to prepare and so many choices for the stuffing! This will also be my recipe for the 6th Fiesta Friday!
Serves 8/10 (large crêpes)
For the crêpes:
- 250g of plain flour/ all purpose flour
- 500ml of full fat milk
- 4 medium eggs
- A pinch of salt
- 70ml of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, the salt, the vanilla sugar and the eggs.
- Pour the milk, stirring to combine.
- Add the cold melted butter.
- Beat until smooth.
- Cover with a plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes into the refrigerator.
- Remove from the refrigerator.
- Heat a frying pan or a crêpiere over medium high heat.
- Coat with a little of butter.
- Pour or scoop the batter onto the crêpière.
- Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
- Cook until the bottom of the crêpe is golden brown (and the edge brown).
- With your fingers or a spatula, flip quickly the crêpe and cook for 2 or 3 minutes.
- Transfer the crêpe to a large plate.
Proceed the same way for the rest of the dough.
For the stuffing:
- 4 apples
- Orange marmalade
- 80g of dark chocolate
- Peel the apples and cut it into small cubes.
- In a small pan over a medium heat, cook the small cubes of the apples with a tablespoon of butter.
- Golden the apples for 10 minutes and set aside.
- Melt the chocolate in “a Bain Marie”.
- Take one crepe, add in the middle 1 tablespoon of marmalade, add a few apples on the top and drizzle with dark chocolate.
- Fold up the edges of the crepe and tie delicately with a strand of Raffia (you can use bamboo skewers).
Truly a treat for our family lunch.
PS: You can use a blender to make the batter too!
I had the chance to live in Paris … where every day, I passed in front of a store called “Specialtés Bretonnes”, the smell of fresh daily crêpes made, attracted me all the time (every Wednesday afternoon I would buy one delicious lemon, sugar crêpe with the complicity of my best friend, so yummy…)

These look super! 🙂 what lovely pictures
Thank you 🙂
Thank you. The piece of muslin helps to wipe the surface of the pan before you fry the crepe. This method is easier and clean. I hope it’s help 🙂
I love the way to “wrap” your crepes ! And I know what you meant when you mentioned the “Specialites Bretonnes”… I’ve been in Brittany last months ago… I still have in my heart those crepes!
Thanks 🙂 They have so much varieties of crepes and they are all very tasty…I’m glad you had a good time, food and fun 🙂
I’m so tired… I wanted to say ” last summer”… 😦
This looks soo pretty. Lovely little crepe packets. Never seen this before. 🙂
Thanks Sadia, we finished the whole dish 🙂
Linda, these are darling! They’re so pretty I’d have trouble refraining from stuffing my face with them. They look so tasty!!
I love your humor Patty 🙂 I think they are much better when you are stuffing yourself with them (and even better, when nobody is watching). They were tasty !!!
Sometimes food is so good I can’t help it. Especially after a long day of teaching!
So stunning, gorgeous and really enticing! This is an extraordinary recipe!
Wow, thank you for your kind words Julianna!

I love your presentation so much- I can barely stand it! 🙂 When I have made stuffed crepes, I have folded them or rolled them. Yours look gorgeous! YUM 🙂
Thank you 🙂 It’s easy and simple to tie even with a ribbon 🙂
What a fabulous idea – love how you’ve bundled them up with all that chocolatey apple goodness inside! 🙂
Thank you. It was good and just sweet enough 🙂
Amazing recipe Linda. Have never seen crepes bundled up like that and the stuffing sounds so delicious too! The pictures are fabulous too!

Isn’t this sinful? Gorgeous and delish looking :).
Thank you Sonal 🙂
Wow! This looks so professional! Beautiful!
Thank you so much Lori 🙂
Thank you for your nice comment 🙂 They are easy to prepare (I’m a lazy mama). It’s neither too sweet nor too bitter with (orange marmalade, dark chocolate and apples), if you prefer more sweet, add a milk chocolate.
Thank you Fae, you’re too nice. I’m sure I will love your crepes ( I love your cuisine anyway) and it’s a pleasure to share.
Wow, these look so precious!! What a delicate work! 😉 I really love the photos too – thanks for sharing! Sylvia

Such a nice idea to wrap up your crepes and present them like little parcels! I love The ingredients, healthy and yummy! 🙂
Thank you Serena! Great way to make them more presentable and make them dinner-party-worthy 😉
Definitely is! 🙂
I am sure they taste delicious! I love the ingredients!Well done!!
Oooh crepes with lemon and just a little bit of sugar, that brings back memories of our trip to Paris. Maybe we need another trip so I can have more of those crepes. Your crepe parcels look stunning, you must be a very skilled crepe maker! 🙂
Saucy you are not the only one in need of a trip to Paris, and I am still not a skilled crepe, as my crepe flipping abilities are in need of some serious practice!
Elles sont superbes ces petites crêpes !
Merci beaucoup Polina .
What a pretty dessert!
Thank you 🙂
I saw this at Fiesta Friday. What a spectacular dish!
Oh, thank you so much. It was very yummy 🙂
what a beautiful dish – I am in awe, and I know that in a million years I would never manage to turn out something that neat and tidy and perfect looking. congrats – you may be a lazy mama, but for sure, my dear, you are also a patient one!
Thank you for your nice comments 🙂
How Lucky for you to have lived in Paris; a place I have always wanted to visit.
These look stunning; I can’t imagine they are as easy as you say but perhaps I will give crepe making a try.
Thank you 🙂 Yes, I was lucky to live in Paris with my parents, I love this city and I sincerely hope you will have the opportunity to visit Paris.
These are gorgeous!
Thank you Janine 🙂
Thank you Antonio 🙂
You are very welcome, will stop by again on your blog. Have a great weekend !!
You too 🙂
I LOVE crêpes and anything having to do with French culture! These look great; if only I had a scale or the recipe was in US metric system.
Thank you so much 🙂
These look so pretty! Love that idea 🙂
Thank You Shiran 🙂 I love the idea too!
