Rating: Medium
20Min

ingredients

  • Plain Flour x 100g 
  • Large Eggs x 2 
  • Whole Milk x 300ml 
  • Sunflower Oil x 1 Tablespoon (plus extra for frying)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Blood Oranges x 2 
  • Créme Fraiche 
  • Icing Sugar 
  • Dark & Stormy Marmalade x 4 Tablespoons 

STEP ONE:

Method:

Put the plain flour and a pinch of salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and crack 2 eggs into the middle.

Pour in about 50ml from the 300ml of milk and 1 tbsp sunflower oil then slowly whisk together.

Once all the flour is incorporated, beat until you have a smooth, thick paste. While still whisking, steadily pour in the remaining milk.

Continue pouring and whisking until you have a smooth batter. Heat a pan over a medium heat, then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper. 

STEP TWO: 

Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer.

The pancake should turn golden underneath after about 30 secs and will be ready to turn.

Flip your pancake and cook for another 30 secs before turning out onto a warm plate.

 

STEP THREE: 

Heat the Dark & Stormy Marmalade in a pan and add the juice of one orange and a teaspoon of butter.

Pour over the crepes and finish with crème fresh and a dusting of icing sugar.

Peel and segment 1 blood orange to garnish.
