About this recipeThese are delicious French crepes, from top pastry start Pierre Hermé
Pierre Hermé makes these with orange zest, grand marnier, for a result that will exceed your expectations of traditional crepes...
Source of the recipeI was given this second hand book of renowned Pierre Hermé "Desserts by Pierre Herme", with so many delightful recipes.
To purchase online, see HERE
And recently, a classmate from my pastry school asked me whether I could show her my Hermé books written in English, which made me read this book
Modifications to the original recipeI modified a few things...
For 13 crepes, 9.05" (or 9 1/16" or 23 cm) in diameter
With 2 eggs
With 4 eggs
With 6 eggs
The Brown Butter "Beurre Noisette"
Butter(3 Tablespoons or 40 g) in a large saucepan
on medium heat
2. As soon as it is melted, whisk to keep it from separating. Increase the heat to cook
on medium/high heat
3. The bubbles will lessen, and the butter will stop singing, and eventually becomes brown, or "caramel colored" as Keller says
4. Transfer to a bowl, and leave the dark sediments in the saucepan
5. To perfectly strain the butter, you may use a cheesecloth to filter the burned bits
Mélange des ingrédients6. Using a blender:
Resting12. It's really important to let the dough chill in the fridge overnight. It does matter...
I learned the importance of this step over the years, and Pierre Hermé insists upon it as well in his recipe
16. I recommend the brand "de Buyer" that you can easily find in stores like "Sur La Table" if you live in the states
17. Heat the pan
18. Rub the pan with canola oil using a paper towel. A simpler way is just to use a Canola Oil Spray
19. Pour in some dough
The more quantity you pour, the thicker the crêpe will be
20. Once one side is slightly brown, flip it using a wooden spatula
ResultYou can cook them and let them sit on a plate, covered, with the plate on a double boiler until your guests arrive
Sooooo gooood ! Thank you, Chef Pierre Hermé !
