Crepes Suzette

Ingredients (serves 4):

For the crepes: 

  • 100g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • Butter to fry

For the sauce (I doubled this mixture):

  • 100g caster sugar
  • 35g unsalted butter
  • 150ml orange juice
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • 2 tablespoons brandy


1. To make the crepes: In a food processor, mix together the flour, salt, egg, egg yolk, milk and butter. Melt a nob of butter in a fry pan on the Simmering Plate and cook the crepes until slightly browned on each side (approx 2 minutes). Repeat until you’ve used all the mixture.

2. To make the sauce: In a medium heavy based saucepan and on the Simmering Plate, melt the sugar with a few dashes of water. Cook until the sugar dissolves, then add the butter, orange juice and orange zest. Cook until thickened and sticky, then add the Grand Marnier/Cointreau and brandy.

3. To serve: dip each crepe into the sauce, then fold into quarters and plate. Repeat until you’ve finished the crepes. Eat immediately with softly whipped cream.
