A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake. Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet crêpes and savoury galettes.
I am excited to share with you this zesty, cheesy, flavorful, and fun crepes recipe. Orange juice will be a bonus for this recipe. I have filled the crepes with cream cheese and mandarin pieces to make them more rich and heavy. You can simply skip the cheese filling and make a simple mandarin crepe, however, the filling is recommended 🙂 I have used coconut flour for these crepes to make them a bit more healthy, but you can use normal flour too.
Calories – 70c per crepe
Prep time – 5 minutes
Cook time – 10 minutes
Serves – 2 to 3
150gms All-Purpose Flour
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Milk
1 and a 1/2 cup Orange Juice
1/2 Water (to adjust the consistency)
3tbsp Melted Butter
3tbsp Castor sugar or Sugar (if you like it, extra sweet)
2tbsp Cream Cheese
2 Mandarin (or orange)
1tsp Cornflour (for mandarin sauce)
Garnish (mandarin zest, honey drizzle, crushed walnuts, and almond flakes)
- Crepes: In a bowl add Flour, 2tbsp Sugar, 1 Egg, 1 cup Orange Juice, 1 cup Milk and 1tbsp Melted Butter, and whisk well until incorporated (add water for thin consistency, if needed). Grease a pan with slight butter and make crepes by pouring a thin layer in circular motion and cook both sides for 2 minutes. Make around three crepes in batches.
- Cheese Filling: In a small bowl add cream cheese, 1tbsp sugar and small chopped pieces of mandarin (around 4 slices) and mix well.
- Mandarin Sauce: In a small saucepan, heat 2tbsp melted butter, 5-6 full slices of mandarin, add 1/2 cup orange juice, 3tbsp milk, water starch (mix 1tsp corn starch+1tsp water) mix well on low heat for 1 minute or until you get a thick sauce consistency.
- Once everything is ready, fill around 1tbsp cheese filling in each crepe and roll as you like, pour the mandarin sauce over the crepes and drizzle with some honey. I have garnished the crepes with a handful of crushed walnuts and almonds flakes for that extra crunch.
Enjoy these gorgeous and aromatic citrusy crepes. I promise you will always keep making them 🙂
