Sugar, for dusting
Love these! I will make these again when family comes to visit. They are great served the orange crepe sauce recipe from this site!
I used only 1 tsp. of anise extract and found it was the perfect amount. While the taste was amazing, I had a lot of trouble working with the batter - it tore even as I spread it. I may try adding these flavors to the basic crepe batter recipe to see if I can duplicate this recipe without the tearing.
This is an excellent breakfast or brunch fun but easy food. I do not chill mine and cook them in oil verses the butter. Serve with powder sugar and or whipped cream. Great and impressive.
This was my first attempt at crepes and I thought that they were just okay. A tablespoon of anise extract seemed like too much. I couldn't taste the orange flavor at all and my husband said that they tasted "mediciny," but maybe anise just isn't our thing. In the end, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar and then squeezed some lemon over that and that seemed to sufficiently cover up the mediciny taste.
These were tasty!
I did not care for this.
