  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 160g milk
  • 50ml double cream
  • Vanilla extract
  • ½ lemon, zest only
  • 10g clarified butter to cook

Method

  1. To make the batter, put the flour, sugar and salt in a bow.

  3. Stir in 50ml milk to make a smooth batter. Gradually stir in the rest of the milk and the cream.

  5. When you are ready to cook the crêpes, give the batter a stir and flavour with vanilla and lemon zest.
  6. Brush the crepe pan with a little clarified butter and heat. Ladle in a little batter and tilt the pan to cover the base thinly.
  7. Cook the crêpe for about 1 minute.
  8. As soon as little holes appear all over the surface, turn the crêpe over and cook the other side for 30-40 seconds.
  9. Transfer to a plate and cook the rest of the batter, stacking the crêpes interleaved with greaseproof paper as they are cooked
  10. Dust with icing sugar, fill with berries or milk or white chocolate, pistachio, berry coulis or toppings of your choice.
