Caramel Apple Crepes

Caramel Apple Crepes are a delicious fall breakfast or dessert. From cookingmimi.com

 

Caramel seems to be a common theme this month with the Caramel French Toast Bake and the Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie and now Caramel Apple Crepes.

I’ve mentioned in other blog posts that I don’t normally fix big breakfasts  other than the occasional buttermilk biscuits and southern sausage gravy we usually have breakfast for dinner. But if you make the crepe batter the night before and refrigerate it this would be quick enough even for a weekday breakfast during the school year.

Even though I am listing this as a breakfast recipe you could easily serve this as a dessert with some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Gotta love double duty recipes.

Apples are sauteed in butter and brown sugar until tender and served over fresh crepes. If you aren’t a fan of crepes you could also top my buttermilk pancakes with the apple topping or use on the apple puff pancake instead of the canned pie filling.

Ingredients

For the Caramel Apples

  • 4-6 apples , peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 4-6 Tablespoons packed brown sugar , depending on sweetness of your apples
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

For the Crepes

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

For the Caramel Apples:

  1. Melt the 3 Tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Cook the apples and brown sugar in the butter, stirring frequently, until apples are tender and a sauce has formed.
  2. If the sauce is too thin for your liking mix together 1 Tablespoon each cornstarch and water. Add to the apples and cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

For the Crepes

  1. In a bowl whisk together the flour and eggs. Slowly add in the water and milk. Whisk until smooth. Melt the butter in a 10” skillet or crepe pan. Add the melted butter and salt to batter and beat until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture by quarter cupfuls into hot skillet and swirl in a circular motion to spread the batter. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Flip and cook for another minute or two until golden on the other side. You’ll get eight crepes from the batch.
  3. Fold the crepes into quarters. Place two on each plate and top with the apples.
