How to make it

  • Prepare the crepe batter:
  • Sift the flour into a bowl, add the eggs and 3-4 tablespoons of the milk and mix well.
  • Gradually stir in the remaining milk to make a fairly runny batter.
  • Melt the butter in a double boiler in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water, leave to cool almost completely, then add to the batter.
  • Season with salt, beat again for a few minutes with a small whisk, then leave to stand for at least 1 hour.
  • Brush the base of a crepe pan with oil and heat, then pour in 2 tablespoons of the batter.
  • Turn and tilt the pan so that the batter covers the base evenly.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes until the underside is set and golden brown, then flip over with a spatula and cook the other side for about 2 minutes until golden.
  • Slide the crepe out of the pan on to a plate.
  • Make more crepes in the same way until all the batter is used.
  • Makes 12. ( 2 crepes a piece )
  • Prepare to fill the crepes:
  • Take the 12 crepes, stack them, interleaved with greaseproof paper, on a plate and keep warm.
  • Pour the milk into a saucepan, add the chocolate and melt over a low heat, stirring constantly until smooth, then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Gently stir in the butter and spread the filling over the crepes while still hot.
  • Fold each crepe into a half-moon shape, arrange, slightly overlapping, on a serving dish and serve with whipped cream.
