Almond Fig Crepes-1The reason I put this much oil in the batter is that I don’t need to keep oiling the pan every time I fry the crepes. In fact, no need to oil the pan at all. However, the real secret to perfect crepes is non-stick pan. I’m using 6-inch pan here, because I like many small crepes. They are perfect to feed the crowd as well.

One more tip… It’s best to cook the crepes on medium high heat, because crepes cook faster that way. The only downside to it, you can’t leave the stove even for a second, but that also means you’ll get done in no time.

Yield: 25

Ingredients:

  1. • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  2. • 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. • ½ teaspoon salt
  4. • 2 cups almond milk
  5. • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  6. • ½ teaspoon pure almond extract
  7. • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  8. • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  9. • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Filling
  1. • 3oz (gr) almond paste
  2. • 2-3 tablespoons almond milk
  3. • Fig jam

Directions:

  1. 1. In a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, whisk together eggs, sugar and salt until slightly foamy, 1-2 minutes. Change the whisk attachment with paddle attachment. Stir in milk, vanilla and almond extract. Add flour and baking powder and beat for 2 minutes, or until there is no more lumps. Stir in the vegetable oil and let it rest for 15 minutes, covered with plastic wrap.
    2. Heat the 6-inch non-stick frying pan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into the hot pan and tilt the pan, so the batter is evenly distributed.
    3. In about a minute, when the edges of the crepe start to pull away, flip it over. Cook until nice and brown, about 30 seconds. Continue on with the remaining batter.
    4. To make the almond spread, beat the almond paste, or marzipan and almond milk in a blender until smooth.
    5. Spread fig jam and almond spread on one side of the crepe and fold the crepe before serving.
