These crêpes make a perfect dessert to end any special meal and the rich and sticky syrup gives it a real fruity kick.Print Recipe
Simmer all the plum ingredients together for 10–12 minutes or until the plums are just tender.
To make the crêpes, whisk together the melted butter, flour, egg and egg yolk, milk and caster sugar with 50 ml (2 fl oz) cold water. Heat an 18–20 cm (7–8 inch) crêpe pan and brush lightly with melted butter.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon flaked almonds into the pan then pour in 50–60 ml (2–3 fl oz) of the mixed batter. Tilt the pan so that the batter runs all over the surface.
Cook for 1 minute until the underside is golden, flip over and cook for a further 1 minute. Tip the crêpe onto a plate. Continue until you have used all the batter.
Stir together the filling ingredients, spread over the pancakes and roll up. Dust with icing sugar and serve with the warm plums in syrup.
* The crêpes are also delicious served with blackberries. Omit the plums, use the same quantity of blackberries and simmer for 5 minutes only.
* Add a good pinch of ground nutmeg to the crêpe batter for a hint of fragrant spice.
* Make the crêpes the day before and store in an airtight container. Wrap in foil and warm in a low oven for 10 minutes before using.
