Here is an exotic dish that is an ideal pick for special occasions. Apples are rich in fibre, making this dish acceptable for diabetics too.
Crepes come out well when made with plain flour, as done in this recipe. I have also used low fat butter, which is easily available in the market today – it is good for use in such desserts where butter is required for texture and flavour.
Do try other desserts like Coffee Mousse or Soya Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce .
- Combine the plain flour, cornflour, milk, salt and ¼ cup of water in a bowl, mix well till no lumps remain. Keep aside.
- Grease a non-stick pan with the butter and pour 2 tbsp of the batter, tilt the pan around quickly so that the batter coats the pan evenly.
- When the sides starts to peel off, turn the pancake around and cook the other side for a few seconds.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 4 more pancakes. Keep aside.
- Heat the butter in a non-stick pan, add the apple slices, sugar substitute, cinnamon, lemon juice and 2 tbsp of water and mix well.
- Cook on a medium flame till the apple slices are cooked, stirring once in between.
- Divide the apple filling into 5 equal portions. Keep aside.
- Place a pancake on a dry, flat surface and place a portion of the apple filling on one half of the pancake.
- Fold the pancake over the filling to make a semi circle.
- Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 4 more crepes.
- Serve immediately.
- Do not overcook the apples as the filling will become soggy, making it difficult to serve the crepes.
- It is highly recommended that this recipe be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. This is just a mere ‘treat’ and does not qualify for a regular diabetic menu.
