Apple Pie Crepes with Sweetened Yogurt – Recipe

Ingredients

For Crepes:

  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar, or to taste
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup lightly warm water
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter or margarine plus more for greasing pan

For Apple Pie Filling/Topping:

  • 2 Granny Smith Apples, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, or to taste
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine

For Sweetened Yogurt Dip/Spread:

  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup condensed milk

Instructions

For crepes:

  1. In a large bowl, beat together eggs and sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add milk, water, salt and mix to combine.
  3. Sift in flour a little bit at a time while continuing to whisk until flour is completely incorporated.
  4. In order to ensure there are no lumps in the batter, sieve into a bowl or beaker cup and stir in vanilla.
  5. Add melted butter or margarine and stir to combine.
  6. Set non-stick pan or crepe pan over medium heat and grease little bit of butter or margarine.  Once hot, lower the temperature to medium-low and pour batter.*
  7. Swirl pan until it’s covered in a thin layer of batter.  When batter starts to set and air bubbles start to appear (about 1 minute), carefully loosen the edges and flip crepe over.
  8. Wait 30 seconds and remove crepe to plate set over warming zone of stove or place in oven preheated to 150 degrees Fahrenheit to keep warm until ready to serve.
  9. Continue from step 5 onwards until all batter is used up.

*How much batter you pour will depend on how large your pan is.  For a small pan, use about ¼ cup of batter and for a large pan or crepe pan use about ½ cup.  If batter is too thick, add more milk until desired pouring consistency is achieved.

For Apple Pie Filling/Topping:

  1. Melt butter or margarine in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, add sliced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon and sauté until apples are cooked through, but still slightly crispy, 5 – 7 minutes.
  2. Remove to serving dish and keep warm.

For Sweetened Yogurt Dip/Spread:

  1. In a small bowl whip yogurt with fork until smooth, add condensed milk and continue to whip until well incorporated.  Taste test for sweetness and adjust according to taste.  Remove to serving dish.
