Method

To Make Crepes:

  • Blend all crepe mixture ingredients together in a blender. Pour into a jug, cover and stand for at least 30 minutes. 
  • Heat a crepe pan (or small frying pan). Grease with a few drops of oil. Add 2 tablespoons of batter to the heated pan. Rotate pan quickly to coat bottom thinly. 
  • Pour any excess back into jug. Cook until small bubbles appear (about 1 minute). Flip crepe with a spatula and cook for another minute. Repeat until batter is finished.

Filling:

  • Melt the butter in a pan. Add ginger and brown sugar and stir to dissolve. When sugar/butter mixture is bubbling, pour in the orange liqueur. Simmer 30 seconds then pour in the citrus juices and zest. Bring to simmering point. Add the pineapple pieces and simmer for 1 – 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir through the custard apple segments.

To Assemble:

  • fold each crepe into a triangle and insert a teaspoon of the mixture inside each one. Allow four crepes per person. Spoon remaining warm sauce and fruit over the top.
  • Serve with coconut cream.
