The Crepes Suzette is a citrusy French dessert, which adds a gourmet touch to your meal. Here, buttery pancakes are stuffed with a tangy orange filling, which is made of orange juice and rind flavoured mildly with brandy.
The filling too has a buttery taste and texture as the orangey ingredients are all held together in a fluffy base of soft butter and sugar. A touch of brandy gives the filling an exotic taste and aroma.
The final masterstroke in the preparation of this zesty dessert is a topping of orange sauce, which carries the tangy notes even higher. Relish this dessert immediately upon assembling, to enjoy the fresh textures and flavours.
- Combine all the ingredients along with 5 tbsp of water in a deep bowl and mix well using a whisk till no lumps remain. Keep aside.
