Crêpes are a staple food here in Switzerland and neighbouring France.
We piled our plant-based crêpes high sandwiched between layers of delicious creamy coconut, drizzled with sweet orange syrup and topped with candied oranges and zest.
- 170 g oat flour
- 25 g cornflour
- 75 ml almond
- 375 ml milk
- 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
- 375 ml cold water
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 250 ml coconut cream (the liquid type, not tinned milk)
- 1 tbsp agar powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- zest 1 Orange
Candied Orange Slices
- 1 large orange cut into 1cm thick slices
- 250 ml water
- 250 g light cane sugar
- Weigh out the flours, liquids and maple syrup directly into a blender and whizz all the ingredients together.
- It is important to let the batter rest for at least 1 hour (or overnight) so mixture settles into a smooth batter.
- The batter needs to be quite thin, like the consistency of single cream, you can add more water if necessary to get the right thickness.
- To cook the pancakes lightly grease a frying pan with coconut oil and set over a medium to high heat.
- Once nice and hot ladle the pancake batter into the frying pan and cook for a few minutes on each side.
- Whisk the agar agar powder and coconut cream together very well, making sure all the powder has dissolved, then add the maple syrup (and orange zest if using).
- Put the saucepan over a medium to high heat and bring the coconut cream to boiling point, as soon as its start to bubble, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Keep stirring to prevent it from sticking to the pan. After 5 minutes, take the pan off the heat and pour the coconut cream into a bowl. Once cool, pour it into a piping bag and pipe between each pancake layer.
Candied Orange Slices
- Start by placing the water and sugar together into a saucepan and bring to the boil. In the meantime, cut the orange into 1 cm thick slices.
- As soon as the water and sugar starts to boil, add the orange slices and simmer gently for 15 – 20 minutes
- When they start to become translucent remove the slices from the syrup and place onto a cooling rack to dry overnight.
- Once dry coat them in sugar and use to decorate pancakes.
