French families regularly make crepes as a dessert, and it’s popular to organise a crepe party where guests make their own crepe and flip it into the air. This recipe is really sublime.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g plain flour, sifted
pinch salt
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 eggs
500ml milk
1 tablespoon oil
1 quantity Cocoa sauce
* vanilla ice cream [rid:38877], to serve
or store-bought, to serve
raspberries, to serve
icing sugar, for dusting

Chestnut cream

Quantity Ingredient
300ml cream, whipped until firm
500g can sweetened chestnut cream

Method

  1. Combine the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs and half of the milk. Whisk the eggs and milk together, then gradually incorporate the flour, slowly adding the rest of the milk to form a smooth, thin mixture. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or until required.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a crêpe pan or other small frying pan until light golden, then whisk into the crêpe batter.
  3. Place the pan over high heat. Pour enough of the crêpe mixture into the hot pan to cover the base of the pan. When the top of the crêpe starts to become dry and the base is cooked, use a spatula to quickly turn it over. When the base is brown, transfer the crêpe to a plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  4. To make the chestnut cream, gently fold the whipped cream into the chestnut cream. Spread each cold crêpe with 2 tablespoons of the chestnut cream, then neatly fold the crêpes.
  5. Spoon a little cocoa sauce on each serving plate. Top with two crêpes and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Spoon a little chestnut cream on top of each crêpe and garnish with one or two raspberries. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
