Here’s three facts about me:
- I’m not a religious person.
- I don’t like American pancakes.
- I really enjoy breakfast foods.
These little nuggets of information are related to the fact that I eat crêpes on a regular basis, irrespective of an upcoming religious holiday. However as the popularity of pancakes suddenly surges around this time of year I thought i’d give you lovely people an appropriate recipe.
Crêpes with Chocolate Porter Sauce
Found some of my Christmas beer that I thought would be good. Can’t go wrong with Shepard Neame.
Wait? What are we doing? Pancakes or something?
YEAH, REDUCE THAT BITCH!
For the sauce:
50g dark chocolate
125ml double cream
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp reduced porter
For the crêpes:
125g plain flour
A pinch of salt
- Whisk together the flour and the eggs, gradually adding the milk and water.
- Add the salt and butter and beat until smooth.
- Cook in a lightly oiled frying pan, flipping the crêpe and impressing any onlookers.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water until smooth.
- Heat the butter, cream, sugar and porter in a small saucepan until evenly combined.
- Remove from the heat and stir through the melted chocolate.
- Do some hardcore drizzling over the crêpes.
- This recipe should make about 8 crêpes. When you drop one on the floor, let the cat eat it. Eat the other 7 by yourself and embrace the shame.
- Repeat as necessary.
