Update on Our Backyard
Oh well, hello Monday! You always arrives so quickly (Unlike the weekends), right? Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well. And if you feel LIKE MONDAY today, no worries. That’s the reason I decided to share these Lavender lemon Crepes with you. I bet they will make any Monday much more bearable.
But first, a quick update on our backyard situation. We have tackled the trees! Well, not exactly. We cut all the trees into smaller stumps (Some of them are super large and heavy, though). While the work isn’t over yet (Not for the next couple of weekends, that’s for sure), it’s not so urgent anymore as there’s no trees on our way. Also, we got an electric log splitter which makes our lives so much easier. On the other hand, our shed is full, and we will need to figure out where to keep the remaining wood. I will repeat: that’s a lot of wood to manage. Perhaps, the size of another shed haha.
Let’s talk about these delightful crêpes now for a minute, shall we?
Crêpes, More Crêpes!
Indeed, there’s quite a few crêpe ideas have been waiting forever to be published on the blog; however, I am not sure if I can manage everything until fall. Why? Too many lavender ideas to share with you! Also, still have some recipes with cherries that I don’t want to ditch out. And cocktails. And now the season of watermelons. Nope – defiantly won’t manage everything I’ve created so far. And I also know from my experience that leavening unpublished recipes for the next season doesn’t really work for me either.
By the way, if you needed to choose, what would you prefer – crêpes with a blueberry or peach sauce?
Lavender lemon Crêpes
Now, I will admit these Lavender lemon Crêpes are not for the times when you are dieting. Cream, white chocolate, honey… While I didn’t count, the amount of calories in one serving roughly equals a huge slice of cake, I believe. That’s a lot? Yeah! Is it worth it? Absolutely!
Importantly, these crepes are not overly sweet thanks to lemon, both juice and zest. So refreshing! Even though you can have them for your breakfast, I would classify this as a dessert. But I don’t see any issues having them along with your morning cup of coffee. Either way, that will be delicious!
Also, I used for this recipe fresh lavender. As dried lavender is more potent, I thought delicate fragrance of fresh lavender is more appropriate here. But if you don’t have fresh lavender, that’s fine. Use dried lavender buds, twice less (or even more), just to introduce a subtle aroma. Plus you will need to finely mince it.
I hope you like these Lavender lemon Crêpes, and you will give it a try 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.
Lavender lemon CrêpesCourse: Dessert, Breakfast
Lavender lemon Crêpes with white chocolate are rich, decadent yet refreshing and luscious.
Please note this is not the precise recipe but mostly the sauce idea. The amount of sauce should be enough for about 8 crepes (So it’s 3-4 servings). The cooking time does not include the time for making crepes (That would add another 1 hour.)
Crepes, this or your favourite recipe (about 2-3 crepes per serving)
2/3 cup heavy (whipping) cream
1/3 cup light (10% or so) cream
70-100 gr, white chocolate, roughly chopped
juice of 1-3 lemons
zest of 1 lemon
1-3 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. fresh lavender (or 1/8 tsp. dried lavender), finely minced
a little pinch of salt
More white chocolate, lemon zest, and lavender, for garnish
- In a small-medium saucepan, combine the cream and white chocolate over low medium heat and melt, constantly stirring.
- Add in the honey, lavender, salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Start by adding the juice of one lemon, try and add more as desired. I used the juice of 3 lemons here, but 2 might bring enough of tartness and freshness to your liking. Simmer, whisking, for about 3 minutes, just to thicken up.
- Remove from heat and let it cool until warm (about 10-15 minutes) or even cold, as desired. Personally I think the warm sauce tastes better.
- Serve with crepes with extra white chocolate, lemon zest, and lavender, if desired. Enjoy!
