    Hey! so the other day i made some crepes suzette and it turned out really good and i just found this board on here and i want to share how to make it with you guys, it makes for a really good desert! im writing this from memory so i hope i remember everything

    Fun Fact: Its a classical French Dish

    Ingredients

    Crepes
    1 Cup All Purpose FLour
    3 Eggs
    1/2 Cup Milk
    1/2 Water
    Pinch of salt
    2 Tablespoons Melted butter

    Sauce (i dont go by ammounts on here, just eyeball it)
    Sugar
    Butter
    Heavy Cream
    Cognac
    Orange Juice
    Orange Zest

    Okay so to make the crepes
    1. Combine all the ingredients in the bowl and whisk until they come together, then let rest for a few minutes.it should be similar to a pancake batter (if its too thick add some water, if its too thin add flour)
    2. Season your pan by bringing oil to its smoke point in the pan and letting it smoke for a few second, then dump out oil and set pan back on medium low to medium heat
    3. Ladle, or pour the mixture into the pan, then swirl the pan around to cover the bottom as quickly as possible
    4. Dump the batter sitting on top of the stuff thats already cooked back into the bowl (this will give you a thinner crepe)
    5. Take a spatula, or knife and lift the sides of the crepe until you can grab it with your fingertips
    6. Quickly peel the crepe off the bottom of the pan and flip it, or you can try flipping it if its not kinda stuck to the bottom of the pan by lifting the pan, because the crepe is really hot to touch with your hand if youre not fast enough
    7. let other side cook for a few seconds then put into plate

    Repeat until you're out of batter

    Time to be the sauce boss
    1. Melt sugar in a pan, on medium heat and let start to get dark, but not too dark, or it will taste bitter
    2. Add a pat of butter and whisk or stir and let melt
    3. Add heavy cream, there will be a lot of bubbling but thats okay let it do its thing
    4.Add cognac and flambe (pour into pan and tip onto fire, or light with a lighter or something)
    5. Add orange juice and orange zest

    To Finish
    1. Put crepes directly into sauce after making it and cover with sauce by draggin it through the sauce and flipping (with tongs)
    2. Fold crepe into quarters, then plate
    3. Pour remaining sauce on top of crepes
    4. Get all the ladys by making them this

    The end

    i never took pictures of it because i wasnt planning on making this post but this picture is pretty close to what i made

    yea crepes are so good and versatile, like the 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water can be any liquid as long as its a cup total, so you could put like an energy drink in it if you wanted to and have energy crepes haha there is a place in Philadelphia right next to me called Creperie Beau Monde that makes only crepes and i really want to go there its supposed to be fantastic
