Ingredients
Crepes - make these first because they have to rest before cooking
  • 30g butter
  • pinch salt
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g plain flour, sifted
Stewed Apples
  • 4 apples peeled, cored and sliced into good-sized slices
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
Crepes
  1. Warm butter, salt and milk until butter has melted. Lightly whisk eggs and add to warm liquid.
  2. Put flour into a basin and make a well. Tip in liquid and whisk until smooth.
  3. Strain into a container and chill for up to 2 hours. (okay I sat mine on the counter for 30 minutes - just fine). The consistency should be like thin cream. If not, thin with more milk.
  4. Heat a frying pan or crepe maker. Wipe pan with a piece of buttered paper for the first pancake. Lift pan from heat, then ladle in about one-quarter of a cup of batter and tilt and swirl the pan to to spread it to the edges. Set the pan back on the heat.
  5. After 1 minute, lift the thin outer edge of pancake with a fine spatula and flip the pancake using your fingers or spatula. When cooked, transfer to a plate in a low oven to keep warm. (I put baking paper between mine)
  6. Repeat until the batter is used up.
  7. Makes 8-10 large crepes
Stewed Apples
  1. In a saucepan place the apples and water and cook on low until the apples are nearly soft.
  2. Add sugar and cinnamon and cook til soft.
Assembly
  1. Place one crepe on a plate and put a spoonful of apple mixture on one side and roll up.
  2. Drizzle with maple syrup to serve.
