I just got back from a trip to Chicago where I visited The Houseware show. I want to thank everyone who came to the Inspired Home Margarita Madness Chicago Meet-up.
I can’t believe that some people came all the way from the Atlanta area, Kuwait and many other places far away from Chicago just to meet me! I thank you and feel so blessed. If you would like to see the pictures from the party, you can see them here.
Easter is just around the corner, and as with other holidays – maybe some extra time to make something yummy for your family.
Thinking about Easter and all the lovely spring colors, I also thought about these delicious French crêpes I tasted at Ladurée when I was in Paris some years back.
So I just had to make them, using the crêpe recipe from the Ladurée: Sucre recipe book.
These crêpes are so delicious with some fresh fruit… Just imagine sitting outside in the sun, inhaling the fresh air and the smell of fresh flowers… oh heaven.
Crêpes Ladurée (makes 12-20)
- 1 orange, unwaxed
- 1 1/3 cups (165 g) cake flour
- 3 tbsp (40 g) granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups (500 ml) milk
- 3 tbsp (40 g) butter
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp vanilla paste (optional)
Using a grater, remove the zest from the orange.
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, grated orange zest, eggs, and vanilla paste. Gradually add the milk while whisking constantly to obtain a smooth, lump-free batter. In a small saucepan, gently melt the butter. Add to the batter with the oil. Allow the batter to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
Lightly butter the surface of the crêpe pan. Pour 100 ml of batter onto the surface of the pan and spread to form a thin, even layer. Cook on one side until set and then flip crêpe over and cook the other side until golden.
You can watch the video “how to make crêpes on a crêpe pan”. I use the one from Severin, but you can of course use any brand. Bagarenochkocken.se has many to choose from, take a look here.
These crêpes are perfect for the Easter breakfast table.
Put some chocolate eggs all around the plates, and serve with delicious fresh fruit, and maybe even some maple syrup. You are all set for an amazing breakfast!
I hope you will give these crêpes from Ladurée a try, and check back soon for more perfect Easter recipes. You can find these beautiful plates and more at bagarenochkocken.se.
