I am not a big dessert eater, not because I don't like desserts, I think
it's too easy a way to add on calories. So, I only serve them once
in a while. Lately, my hubby has been requesting desserts, so I
have had to think of ways to have a dessert treat, without the left
overs of a pie or cake. And … I decided to share some of these
dessert creations with you. I am calling them ~
"Pop Up Desserts" …
because they are in the kitchen for a limited time only;-)
Therefore, I will be having Pop Up Treats on Tuesday for
a couple of weeks to give you some ideas too.
Today's pop up treat is a throw back based on my Mom's
crepe recipe. Mom often made dessert crepes for dinner parties.
She would spend an afternoon making lots of thin crepes and
then freezing them so that she always had a quick go to
dessert for company. She made the old standard with the
orange sauce and flamed them. Sometimes she filled them with
fruit and sprinkled with powdered sugar. They were always
My version is to fold the crepe over, drizzle with chocolate sauce,
sprinkle with almonds, and top with whipped cream. I did taste
test it, and it's yummy.
Mom's Crepe Recipe:
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons melted butter
Beat all ingredients with a whisk until smooth.
Then lightly butter a 8" non-stick pan with a pat of butter,
cook till hot and bubbly. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into pan
and tilt to coat the bottom. Cook until bottom of crepe is
light brown and flip to cook other side. You can stack the
crepes as you make them and cover with a tea towel to
keep them moist. Makes about 4 to 6 crepes.
Next Tuesday I will share my individual banana pudding
cups. My hubby loves them!
