Step 1: You will need

  • 4 French crepes, folded in 4 (recipe can be found on our website)
  • 200 ml orange juice
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 30 g butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp Grand Marnier
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 wooden spatula
  • matches or a light
  • 1 skewer

Step 2: Make the caramel

Place the frying pan on a high heat. Add the water and sugar and mix thoroughly. After 2 minutes the they will begin to caramelize.

Add the butter and combine well. Add the orange juice, lemon juice and allow to reduce for about 30 seconds.

Step 3: Heat the crepes

Place the folded crepes into the frying pan and heat for 1 minute. Using the wooden spatula, move them in the sauce to soak them completely.

It's important that the crepes are very hot to help the liquor burn.

Step 4: Flambé the crepes

Pour the Grand Marnier into the frying pan and using a lighter, a long match or a skewer lit at one end, light the liquor.

Flambé for 5 seconds.

Place the crepes onto individual plates and pour some sauce over each one.

Step 5: Serve the crepe suzette

The crepes can be served as they are or with some caramelized orange peel and a dollop of cream or ice cream.
