What you need:
(click + to add ingredients to your shopping list)
+ 1 c. flour
+ 1/4 tsp. salt
+ 3 eggs
+ 1 1/4 c. milk
+ 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
+ store bought chocolate sauce or syrup
+ 2 firm BC Brand pears, such as Anjou
+ 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
+ 2 Tbsp. light brown sugar
+ dash pear liqueur or brandy, optional
What to do:
1. Stir flour and salt together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, milk and butter together. Whisk into flour until smooth and no lumps remain. Cover and refrigerate for up to an hour.
2. Strain into another bowl. Heat an 8 in. non-stick pan or crępe pan over medium heat. Lightly spray with cooking oil. Pour a little less than 1/4 c. batter into the center of the pan and tip pan to create about a 6-in. crępe. Cook for about 1 min. or until bottom is pale golden. Flip crępe in pan and cook for a few more seconds. Transfer to plate. If batter bubbles then pan is too hot. Repeat with remaining batter. Stack crępes between sheets of waxed paper or parchment.
1. Thinly slice unpeeled pears. Heat butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add sliced pears and sprinkle with brown sugar. Sauté over medium heat just until pears are almost soft and glazed, and sugar is melted, about 5 min. Add a splash of liqueur or brandy, if you wish. Remove from the heat.
2. To Serve: Spoon a little of the pear mixture down the center of each crępe. Fold in sides and serve with a drizzle of chocolate sauce over top.
