Apple-Cinnamon Crepe

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

At first glance, "perfect" seems like a good word; one that everyone should aspire for. However, if you look closely, you will see that the word "perfect" is the root of many people's frustrations. Drop the need to become perfect in every aspect of your life -- you do not have to the perfect mom because just being a loving mom will do.

You need not worry if your apple-cinnamon crepe would not turn out perfectly as you expect it to be, there can always be another chance and another try for this mouth watering dish.

You will need:

For crepes:
1 liter milk
750 grams flour
150 grams sugar
12 pieces eggs
vanilla essence
1 piece orange zest

For filling:
150 grams fresh apples
50 grams sugar
15 grams butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
15 mL rum
1 tablespoon cornstarch (dissolve in water)

For chocolate sauce:
100 mL fresh cream
100 mL milk
200 grams compound chocolate (chopped and broken into small pieces)
20 grams butter

Here's how:

Mix all the first ingredients in a clean bowl. Make sure that all ingredients are in room temperature to prevent lumps. After all the ingredients are well incorporated, strain the mixture into a regular sieve.

In a hot pan, put the sliced apples, sugar, and butter. Cook them until the sugar has melted, then add the cinnamon powder. Flambe' the apples by adding the rum. Add the cornstarch until the mixture is thickened.

Put butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Use a paddle attachment at moderate speed and beat for five minutes. Slowly add the flour in two batches then add the glucose. Put the mixture in the chiller and let it rest for half an hour.

For the chocolate sauce, in a small saucepan, scald the cream and milk. Immediately pour it onto the compound chocolate. Stir the mixture and add the butter until the chocolate is completely melted.

To assemble, fill the crepe with the apple-cinnamon mixture and fold. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
