Allagash Chocolate Macadamia Crepes

Recipe by Penny Stankiewciz

Yield 6-8 servings

For the Crepes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place eggs, melted butter, vanilla and Allagash Ale in a blender. Blend quickly, only to mix.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and sugar and incorporate thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the blender.
  3. Blend on a medium mixing speed for about 30-60 seconds until all ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before use.
  5. Heat crepe pan. Brush the hot pan lightly with melted butter. Off the heat, pour approximately two ounces of batter into the center of the pan, swirling to thinly cover it. Pour any extra batter back into blender. Cook crepe over relatively high heat until lightly browned on one side and batter on top appears set. Flip and cook another 30 seconds on the second side. Remove to an oven proof plate. Cover and place in warm oven until all crepes are done and ready for filling and service. Expect the first couple of crepes will not work properly and will be discarded.
