Breakfast on Shrove Tuesday

Caramelised Strawberry and Plum w/ crepes

A little treat on Shrove Tuesday.

Ingredients:

1 batch of crepe batter (I used this recipe)
3 strawberries, halved
1 plum, halved
2 tbsp light brown sugar
1/4 lemon
(extra lemon wedges for serving)

  1. Make crepes as per recipe.
  2. Place brown sugar onto the pan and squeeze in lemon juice.
  3. Do not stir, allow sugar to start caramelising before placing plums face down onto the pan.
  4. Let it cook for about 5mins before adding in the strawberries (also face down).
  5. Allow strawberries to cook for about 2mins, then remove from pan and serve.
Optional: serve with a dusting of icing sugar.

Indigo: Hi there and thanks :) I got these strawberries from Tesco Metro. I believe these were imported from Morocco.

Kate: Hi Kate. Strawberries and honey are my favourite pancake toppings. I must say that they're so easy to make. I whipped up another batch just on the weekend for breakfast. I'd say it took me about 30mins tops :)
