My family’s favorite treat;Â Crepes.Â Sweet or savory, these hitÂ the spot everyÂ singleÂ time.Â We simplyÂ loveÂ them.
This time IÂ changedÂ thingsÂ up a bit and added crepes in the deliciousÂ sauce.Â It was really satisfying and perfectly coated with sweet cocoa coconut flavors
IÂ know it does not make any sense to you, but about 6 years agoÂ IÂ was hired to create or developÂ recipesÂ for a cookbook and shoot eachÂ recipe.
AfterÂ IÂ completed about 30Â recipesÂ with two pictures andÂ stepÂ byÂ stepÂ instructions for eachÂ recipe, that clients said that he simply did not like it.Â IÂ was literally crushed.Â So,Â IÂ had toÂ doÂ everything all over again with newÂ recipesÂ and pictures as well.
IÂ am aÂ hardÂ worker, and as much asÂ IÂ 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.Â I waited to gain self-confidence again, so I am posting on my blog now, without being upset.
Actually, I reallyÂ loved this recipe, and crepes are amazing, of course.Â IÂ couldÂ eatÂ them on its own, to be honest.Â With that being said, IÂ just wanted to share something personal.Â
SometimesÂ weÂ feelÂ vulnerable and that’s okay,Â weÂ are humans. ThoseÂ feelsÂ areÂ arightÂ toÂ feelÂ from time to time.Â WeÂ canÂ keepÂ itÂ to ourselves or shareÂ itÂ with the world, a friend, or aÂ siblingÂ and perhaps someone will relate to us, in one way or another.
IÂ neverÂ spokeÂ of that situation before, becauseÂ IÂ feltÂ afraidÂ toÂ openÂ my heart andÂ speakÂ aboutÂ it.
Have you ever closed up, felt defeated, crushed and didn’t talk about it?
Crepes with Sweet Cocoa, Coconut Sauce
Crepes with Sweet Cocoa, Coconut Sauce… It was really satisfying and perfectly coated with sweet cocoa coconut flavors
- 1 cup all-purpose Flour
- 1 3/4 cups Milk
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1/2 tbsp Sugar
- 1 teaspoon CoconutÂ 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
Make the batter:
- Place the flour, milk, eggs, salt, sugar and slightly melted coconut butter in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds or until batter is smooth. Alternatively, whisk everything together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
Before cooking the crepes, assemble everything you will need by your stove top: the batter, the pan, the oil, the spatula. Ladle or 1/4-cup measuring cup handy.
- 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, pick up the pan and swirl it to coax the batter into an even layer on the bottom of the pan.
Flip the crepe:
- When the crÃªpe 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.
In the 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.
Allow crepes to get infused and glazed with the sauce. Take out and place on the plate, continue with the rest of crepes.
Add more sugar, Coconut butter, and Cocoa if needed until all the crepes are done.
How to melt coconut oil or butter:
- 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. I just had coconut butter and used it for this recipe. Using coconut butter gave me more of a coconut caramel flavor.
