Crêpes Suzette is a French dessert traditionally consisting of thin pancakes with buttery caramelized orange sauce and orange liqueur. I made a vegan version of it but with some additional almond cream which was inspired by the walnut filled Gundel crêpes.
I found it easier to put the ready pancakes into the oven with the sauce instead of turning them in the pan. This way the filling stays in the crêpes and can be pre-prepared in a casserole or baking dish.
Usually as an amusement and show element they flambé the orange liqueur (Grand Marnier , Cointreau or triple Sec) when serving. I did skip this step as I’m not too confident yet to handle my blowtorch aka pocket dragon as we call it in Hungary. I have to admit that makes me feel proud to own one and I pretend to be a master chef. Picture me posing as agent 007 with a blowtorch.
Enjoy and let me know how did you like it!
