Ingredients

Apple Maple Syrup Filling

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter or vegetable oil
  • 6 cooking apples, peeled, cored & cut in wedges
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) PURE Infused Lavender & Chai Maple Syrup

Sweet Crêpes

  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/3 cup  milk
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

Apple Maple Syrup Filling

  • Heat butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Add maple syrup and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until apples are tender and caramelized.
  • To assemble crêpes, place crêpes, nicest side down, on a work surface. Divide caramelized apple mixture among crêpes. Roll up and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Before serving, warm crêpes in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for 5 to 10 minutes.

Sweet Crêpes

  • In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, flour, sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth.
  • Heat a medium-sized skillet or crêpe pan over medium heat. Grease pan with a small amount of butter or oil applied with a brush or paper towel.
  • Using a serving spoon or small ladle, spoon about 3 tablespoons crepe batter into hot pan, tilting the pan so that bottom surface is evenly coated. Cook over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes a side, or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately.

Lavender & Chai

For millennia, the sweet smell of lavender was prized for its relaxing and calming influences. We just think it tastes great, which is why we use it to infuse PURE maple syrup with unique floral qualities. Lavender’s fragrant and slightly spicy notes are perfectly balanced by deep and dusky Indian masala. It’s the ideal complement to sweet treats like panna cotta, crème brulee, tea cakes or scones. The lavender really pops when we drizzle it over strong, aged cheeses such as cheddar or gouda. For something more subtle, sweeten a café latte with it – delicious!

How To Use

  • Panna cotta and crème brulee
  • Tea cakes and scones
  • Warm drinks (coffee, tea, lattes or hot chocolate)
  • Cold drinks (homemade iced tea or lemonade)
  • Strong aged cheeses such as cheddar or gouda (the lavender really pops!)
  • Paired with fresh peaches, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries (even a fresh fruit salad)
  • Liberally brush it on fresh pineapple, peaches or pears before grilling for a truly sensational caramelized treat.
