Servings 4 people
Author Bonne Maman

Ingredients

  • 8 traditional French crépes
  • 8 tbsp Bonne Maman Bitter Orange Marmalade
  • Finely shredded or grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 3-4 tbsp Grand Marnier
  • 50 g chilled unsalted butter diced
  • Icing sugar to dust

Instructions

  1. First make your crêpes and keep to one side.

  2. In a medium frying pan, mix together the marmalade with the lemon zest, juice, Grand Marnier and 4 tbsp cold water.

  3. Heat gently over a low heat until the marmalade has melted, then bubble for 1-2 mins until the mixture turns a light toffee colour.

  4. Lower the heat and add the butter to the pan, a few pieces at a time, swirling it into the citrus mixture. Bubble for 1-2 mins until glossy.

  5. Fold the crêpes into quarters and slide them into the pan, spooning over the sauce. Heat through for 1 min before serving with a dusting of icing sugar.

Savoir-faire… Try adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to each serving!
