This week's recipe for French Fridays with Dorie is Butter and Rum Crepes. Dorie talks about how you can get crepes on the street corners in Paris and that people eat them out of hand. The other day while Munchkin and I were finishing up at the Hot Chocolate 5K my hubster and Little Man were actually eating crepes from the crepe stand inside the Nashville Farmers Market. There is also a great crepe restaurant called The Red Bicycle that we have been to.
The batter for these was a cinch to whip up in the blender. I left the batter in the fridge for about 5 hours so it could thicken to the right consistency. I also made the sauce but made a mistake somewhere along the way. It came out way too thin but it was still tasty. It had lemon juice, orange juice and honey and gave the crepes a sweet, tangy touch. I think I finally got the hang of making these after the first few. They were not hard to make but they were time consuming. These were really a dessert crepe but I made them for dinner with bacon and fruit. I am sure I will make them again when I have the time. :)
