Crêpes with Passion Fruit Sauce

Hello everyone – happy Monday! Or “happy Monday” (Choose the applicable one.) Although my Monday has been quite pleasant so far, it’s always a good idea to enjoy something ultra delicious. Just for any case. And I am sure these Crêpes with Passion Fruit Sauce will make your Monday so much better!

Some might argue though that a cocktail would work even better. I cannot disagree. But did I mention there’s a plenty of rum in this recipe? That’s qualify. Indeed, it’s even better. Who can refuse some scrumptious crepes with a boozy sauce, am I right? However, if you insist, well, please check this luscious Rose Mojito. It’s light and fresh enough not to be embarrassed to enjoy it on Monday :)

Anyway, back to these crepes. I often almost always add some liquor to my crepe recipes. Because why not?! Crepes are a dessert usually utterly high in carbs and calories, so why stop yourself? The diet will wait for another day!

Crêpes with Passion Fruit Sauce

As I mentioned, there’s two types of sauces here. Both are super easy and ultra tasty. And of course, you can choose only one (But that will be a different recipe. Still tasty, though.)

The first sauce is the combination of cream cheese, cream, white (or blonde) chocolate, and vanilla extract. Irresistibly smooth and velvety that you can easily eat it without any crepes.

The second sauce is the combination of passion fruit pulp, honey, butter, and rum. Its consistency is somewhat between curd and jam. For this recipe I used packaged passion fruit pulp; it’s cheaper and easier to find. But I would still recommend using one or two fresh fruit as they would add so much aroma and freshness to this sauce! Also, my passion fruit pulp already contained honey, so check it out if yours has been sweetened, too. You might need to use less or skip the honey at all!

But promise you won’t skip the rum. That’s perhaps the best part. Whiskey or bourbon or even triple sec would work equally well.

I hope you like these crêpes, and you will give them soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen. Also don’t forget to make some lilac syrup as you might want to have for my upcoming recipes!

Cheers!

These Crêpes with Passion Fruit Sauce are a luscious and elegant dessert you can serve for any occasion

Ingredients

  • 10-12 crêpes, this or your favourite recipe

  • 1-2 fresh passion fruit, fresh mint, ice cream for serving (optional)

  • Cream Cheese Blonde Chocolate Sauce:
  • 2/3 cup cream 18%

  • 1/2 cup plain cream cheese

  • about 70 gr. blonde or white chocolate, roughly chopped

  • 1 tsp. natural vanilla extract

  • Passion Fruit Rum Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp. butter

  • 2-3 tbsp. honey or maple syrup (See Notes)

  • about 1 and 1/2 cups of passion fruit pulp (See Notes)

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of rum (whiskey or bourbon would work too) (See Notes)

  • 1 tsp. natural vanilla extract

Directions

  • Cream Cheese Blonde Chocolate Sauce:
  • In a small saucepan, combine the cream and cream cheese over low heat, whisking occasionally, until melted and incorporated. Stir in the blonde (or white) chocolate, melt. Add the vanilla extract and stir to combine. Off heat and let the sauce cool.
  • Passion Fruit Rum Sauce:
  • In a pan or skillet melt the butter and add the honey or maple if using (See Notes) and the passion fruit pulp. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, to thicken a bit.
  • Stir in the rum and vanilla and cook for another minute. Off heat and let it cool a bit.
  • Serve the crepes with cooled (although slightly warm will be also good) sauces. If desired, garnish with fresh passion fruit, mint, and a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use the frozen / packaged passion fruit pulp for this recipe – using fresh fruit would be way too expensive! If available, add or or two fresh fruit along with the sauce, for the added flavour and freshness. Some frozen / canned pulp can already contain a sweetener, so you might want to reduce the amount of honey / maple or skip it at all.
  • 1/2 cup of alcohol will result in quite a strong boozy sauce, but it will be balanced out once combined with the crepes and cream cheese sauce. You can still use only 1/3 cup of rum or as desired.
  • The both sauces would be enough to serve around 10-12 crepes, but that all depends on how much of each sauce you would like to have per a crepe. You can always prepare a few extra crepes – just in case you you won’t want as much of the sauces per crepe as we did. And if you end up with some leftovers of one or both sauces, you can refrigerate them and use within 3-4 days with toasts, pancakes, porridge, trifles, etc.

    Ben…forget Salad King. I now deem you the Crepes King! This recipe sounds delicious, and I love the idea of using passion fruit in the sauce. I might have to try this one with bourbon…because you know me and bourbon! :-)

    Crêpes with any sauce is a winner with me but adding booze really takes it ott! Elegant and luscious. What a gorgeous summer dessert and I really like your tip to use frozen passion fruit pulp, great idea particularly when groceries have become so expensive.

    This would be really good, one of my fave flavour in pastries and dessert is passionfruit, gives a nice tangy sweet fruity taste which is so addictive, I will definitely try this with my crepes soon
