This crepe Suzette recipe is a must try!

If you love crepe (Who doesn’t?) you will fall in love with this classic version with a fantastic taste of orange. The sauce Suzette is a syrup made with sugar, orange, lemon and zest. You can also add Grand Marnier. And to add a spectacular effect, you can flambé your crepe Suzette! (Be careful with the fire!)

What is crepe Suzette ?

A crepe Suzette is a French dessert made from crepe and Suzette sauce: a caramelized sugar and butter sauce, mandarin or orange juice, Grand Marnier or Triple sec liqueur and zest. Suzette crepes are usually served flambées, although some cookbooks note that in the original recipe, they are served without flambé.
