Crepes with Sweet Cocoa Coconut Sauce

 

My family’s favorite treat is Crepes; Sweet or savory, these hit the spot every single time. We love them!

This time I changed things up a bit and added crepes in the delicious sauce. It was satisfying and perfectly coated with sweet cocoa coconut flavors.

Sometimes a picture could tell a thousand words instead of me pouring my heart and soul. This recipe is a reminder for me personally. A reminder of how I reached the top of my game, working on something amazing, then drop to the bottom of the sea to save my sanity.

About a year ago, somebody hired me to develop and photograph recipes for a cookbook. I was over the moon!

After I completed 30 recipes with two pictures and step-by-step instructions for each recipe, that client said that he did not like it.

Let me tell you, that crushed me inside and out. So, pull my big girl’s pants up, and I did everything all over again with new recipes and pictures as well.

DESSERT RECIPES

I am a hard worker, and as much as I hated the idea of redoing everything, there was no way out.

One of the pictures that the client didn’t like was this one, including the recipe. I waited to gain self-confidence again, so I am posting on my blog now, without being upset.

I loved this recipe, and crepes are amazing, of course. I could eat them on their own, to be honest, but this recipe I just wanted to share something personal.

Sometimes we feel vulnerable, and that’s okay. We are humans!

STEP BY STEP

I never spoke of that situation before because I felt afraid to open my heart and talk about it. However, I am in such a good place that I feel it is finally okay to share and talk about my heartbreaking experience with everyone.

The client ended up burring me even more with hating the second round of recipes and photos and disappeared. He was gone! I couldn’t reach him anywhere!

I was paid a small portion of our agreement, but it was hardly enough to cover my expenses for testing recipes twice. It still hurts!

Crepes with Sweet Cocoa, Coconut Sauce… It was really satisfying and perfectly coated with sweet cocoa coconut flavors

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Butter
  • Oil for coating the pan

Sauce per 3-4 crepes:

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Butter
  • 1/2 tbsp. unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar light

Instructions

Make the batter:

  1. Place the flour, milk, eggs, salt, sugar, and slightly melted coconut butter in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds or until the batter is smooth. Alternatively, whisk everything together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Before cooking the crepes, assemble everything you will need on your stovetop: the batter, the pan, the oil, the spatula. Ladle or 1/4-cup measuring cup handy.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat and add a small amount of oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Let it sit on the flame for a minute to get hot. Pour in about 1/4 cup of batter. Immediately, lift the pan and swirl it to coax the batter into an even layer on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Flip the crepe: When the crepe has browned slightly on the bottom, carefully work a spatula underneath it and flip. Cook the second side briefly, just to set the batter.
    Cool the crepe: Tilt the pan and loosen the crepe, then slide it onto the cooling rack.

Continue making crepes: Continue making crepes with the rest of the batter, adding more oil as needed to keep the crepes from sticking.

Make Sauce:

  1. In a separate pan such as saute pan, add Coconut butter, Cocoa, and Brown Sugar. Let it melt and incorporate at a lower temperature, then fold crepes into triangles and put a few at the time in the bubbly sugar, Cocoa, and coconut butter sauce.
  2. Allow crepes to get infused and glazed with the sauce. Take out and place on the plate, continue with the rest of the crepes.
  3. Add more sugar, Coconut Butter, and Cocoa if needed until all the crepes are done.

How to melt coconut oil or butter:

  1. Place a Jar in warmer water and wait for about 7-10 minutes until it is melted.
    For this recipe, you may use coconut oil as well.
  2. I just had coconut butter and used it for this recipe.
  3. Using coconut butter gave me more of a coconut caramel flavor.
