Crêpes with Cinnamon Apples

by Lorena

Difficulty 2/5

Crêpes are a must recipe to know how to make. This recipe works good for savoury and sweet fillings, however cinnamon apples are my favourite. These crêpes are the perfect dessert after a tasty meal. They’re not too heavy and you could definitely add some whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream to top those nice and hot apples.


The trick to make thin crêpes is not to add too much batter to the pan and also to put the pan nice and vertical when you add the batter so it spreads out nice and thin.

If you want to make a more “tropical” version of this dish you could replace the milk with coconut mik to make coconut crêpes and change the apples for chopped pineapples.

It’s really important that your pan is non-stick because if not it’s just going to be more complicated for yourself than it needs to be. However, chances are the first crêpe will always stick and it will not be the nicest one. I tend to eat that one myself because it’s not much of a looker but it’s still yummy.
