For the crêpes

  • 125 g all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 300 ml milk any type
  • 20 g unsalted butter melted and cooled to room temperature plus more to cook
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds optional but highly recommended

For the orange and lemon sauce

  • 2 oranges juice only
  • 1/2 lemon zest only
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sugar

To serve

  • Icing sugar


For the crêpes

  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and make a hole in the center.
  • Add the wet ingredients at the center and whisk from the center, adding the dry ingredients little by little to prevent lumps from forming.
  • Let rest for 30min in the fridge.
  • Place a bit of butter on a non-stick 25cm diameter pan over medium heat and add a ladle of the batter. Make the pan go super vertical so as to help it spread nice and thin.
  • When the edges become golden unstick a corner and flip it with your two hands carefully.

For the orange and lemon sauce

  • Place everything in a pot and make it boil until it thickens.
  • Serve over the crêpes and dust with icing sugar.
