The classic French dessert is absurdly simple; soak crepes in buttery, boozy, orange-flavor syrup, then serve with whipped cream. Although unflavored Sweet Crepes are traditional in this dish, you could make a delicious orange-chocolate variation by substituting Cocoa Crepes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add zest, orange juice and sugar. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and boil gently about 3 minutes or until reduced and slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur.

  • Return the skillet to low heat. Add a crepe to the skillet. Using tongs, fold the crepe into quarters. Transfer to dessert plates or a serving platter, allowing excess syrup to run off back into the skillet. Repeat with remaining crepes. Spoon any remaining syrup over crepes. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
