Apple and pear french toast crepes

Stuffed crepes with caramelised apple chunks, toasted crushed hazelnut and fresh pear slices with zingy yogurt.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

For the crêpe:

50 g Plain flour

1 Egg

130 ml Hazelnut Milk ((or any other milk))

1 tsp Olive oil

½ tsp Vanilla extract

½ tsp Ground cinnamon

For the puree:

2 Pears

1 Apple

1 tbsp Maple syrup

1 tsp Water

For the apples:

1 Apple

a bunch of Hazelnuts

1 tsp Sugar

Extras:

Yoghurt (or Cream) / Vegan yoghurt

Icing sugar

1 Pear (sliced)

Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c.
  2. Roughly chop two pears and an apple. Add to a saucepan with the maple syrup and water. Place over a medium heat and allow to soften completely.
  3. Whilst the fruits soften, feel another apple and cut into small bitesize chunks. Place in a baking tray with the sugar and hazelnuts and cook in the oven for 15 minutes, making sure the hazelnuts don’t burn!
  4. Next, onto the crêpe mix. In a bowl, mix together the flour and cinnamon. Then whisk in the egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Whisk until it’s a smooth runny consistency.
  5. Once the fruit is softened, blend into a smooth puree, or use a potato masher if you don’t have a blender.
  6. Place a crêpe pan or frying pan over a medium/low heat and allow to warm. Brush a little oil to the pan to avoid sticking. It only needs to be a thin layer.
  7. Carefully flip the pancake to cook the other side. I use a spatula, but you can be fancy if you like!
  8. Once the apple and nuts have toasted, remove them from the oven and crush or chop the hazelnuts.
  9. Place a crepe on a plate and add a scoop of the puree, then fold in half and add a little more puree and fold again. Top with the caramelised apple pieces, crushed hazelnuts and fresh slices of pear, and even dollops of zingy yogurt or cream.
