I love peach pie, pudding, cake, etc. I thought that I would make some "southern" peach crepes for a change. We love to eat breakfast for dinner. I know many that have Sunday Supper devoted to breakfast foods.
If you google the definition of crepes, you will find crepes are a thin type of pancake:
A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake. Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet crêpes and savoury galettes. Crêpes are served with a variety of fillings, from the simplest with only sugar to flambéed crêpes Suzette or elaborate savoury galettes. Wikipedia
An easy way to make delicious crepes is to take your good ole' fashion buttermilk pancake recipe and add more water. The batter needs to be thinner as it will pour off the spoon easier. I use Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete. Again, add more water.
The key is to drop two tablespoons of unsalted butter in your skillet and heat it. Drop in your batter onto the melted hot pan of butter. Turn down the stove to a medium to high heat. The pancake (i.e. southern crepe) will start to bubble (just like you are cooking pancakes) and be ready to flip. STOP: Before you flip add about two tablespoons of your peach fruit mixture (see recipe below) before you flip the crepe. Use your spatula to fold over the side of the crepe, so that your peach filling will be inside (like a fried pie.)
Flip over and let both sides become golden brown. Remove from heat and top with organic powdered sugar and serve. I did pour warm maple syrup on ours. It was delicious! So, you just made yourself crepes or stuffed pancakes. Basically, the French call them crepes and us southerner's refer to them as stuffed pancakes.
Peach Crepe Filling:
1 can of Peach Pie Filling
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (or light)
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
1 Tablespoon of Organic Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/2 cup organic powdered sugar (to use as topping for crepes)
In a mixing bowl combine and mix together all the ingredients except for the butter.
Pour into small skillet on stove top and simmer adding in the butter. Let simmer for about 5-7 minutes.
These were so delicious and so easy to do. They are perfect for a #SundaySupper, brunch or an easy dessert!
