Crepes are a comfort food for me. They bring me back to my childhood when Mom would bring them home as a special treat and let us fill them with ice cream and chocolate sauce. As much as I love them though, I don’t think I’ve had them since I was young. Imagine how excited I was when I received my Hamptons Lane box for March and discovered that it was all about Crepes! Seriously, I feel like I fall in love with this subscription box a little more with every passing month. We received everything we need to whip up a batch of these wonderful little pancake-like breakfast pastries. As per usual, I was a little intimidated, and seeing as it’s too early for wine at 8am in the morning, I put Baileys in my coffee instead……and put on a really cute apron…..

Chocolate Orange Cardmon Crepes - Hamptons Lane 8

Recipe: Chocolate Orange Cardamom Crepes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • combine all crepe ingredients in bowl and whisk until smooth, chill in fridge for 30 minutes
  • melt butter in crepe pan, add 1/4 cup crepe mixture and quickly spread out
  • cook until top looks dry, flip and cook for another 15-20 seconds, remove and let cool on rack, repeat until all the mix is gone
  • for the cashew cream I soaked 1 cup of cashews overnight, the blended them with a little bit of water, 1 tsp of vanilla and a little bit of agave nectar, this will make a whip cream like mixture
  • fold crepe in half, top with chocolate sauce and marmalade, fold in half again, top with cashew cream and a slice of orange

Notes:

  • I found that 1/4 cup of crepe mixture was a little too much so I reduced it to 1/8 cup in order to make the crepes really thin
  • once I reduced the amount of mixture they cooked really fast so you will definitely need to keep an eye on them
  • I kept a little bowl of melted butter beside the pan and would brush a small amount of butter on the pan before I made each crepe, make sure to brush it up the sides of the pan
  • the chocolate sauce and marmalade are from my Hamptons Lane box but you could easily substitute Nutella and regular marmalade
