Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1¼ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g milk chocolate, melted
  • 15g butter, melted
  • whipped cream, raspberries,
  • and grated chocolate to serve

Method

  1. Sift flour into a medium bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre of dry ingredients.
  2. Combine milk and eggs and gradually whisk into the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter that is the consistency of pouring cream. Add melted chocolate. Set aside.
  3. Heat a small frying pan (or crèpe pan) on medium. Brush with a little butter. Pour ¼ cup batter into the pan, swirling to cover the base. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Continue with remaining batter, brushing the pan with butter as required.
  5. Serve crèpes folded, topped with cream, raspberries and a little grated chocolate.

Notes

  • If liked, drizzle the crèpes with a little chocolate sauce. In a small saucepan, melt half cup cream with a third of a cup of chocolate pieces, stirring well.
