Crepes Blackberry

Crepes with Blackberry Compote

2 cups flour

cup sugar

3 cups milk

Zest of one orange

6 eggs

2 ounces melted butter

Blackberry compote:

1 pound blackberries

1 cup sugar

Juice of 1 lime

1 cinnamon stick

2 cups water

Pure flour, sugar, milk, orange zest, eggs and melted butter in a blender. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate for one hour. Rebeat before using.

To make the crepes, heat a small nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Ladle about 1 tablespoon of the batter into the skillet and swirl it around so the batter forms a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. Pour any excess batter back into the bowl. When the batter looks dry (less than a minute), turn the crepe and cook the other side for another 15 seconds. The crepe should be slightly golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used.

To make the compote, place blackberries, sugar, lime juice, cinnamon stick and water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes, or until reduced by half. Let cool. Serve over crepes. Makes 25 crepes or 10-12 servings.
