Michigan Bed and Breakfast recipes, Black Current Crepes

One of the most raved over dishes that we serve here at the inn in our "Crepes de Cassis" or translated from the French, Black Current Crepes.  We do not serve this often, but when we do, it is always a huge hit, and so many people commented on how good they also looked the last time I posted a picture of it online, I have decided to post the recipe for everyone to make at home.  Great breakfasts are just one of the things that people enjoy during their Michigan Getaway.

I will be posting more recipes as time goes on, in lieu of a cookbook, which so many people have also asked about...so enjoy!!!

DeLano Mansion Crepes de Cassis
(Black Current Crepes)

Soften 1-8 oz. package of cream cheese with 1/2 cup black current jam in oven at 170 F., for about 30 minutes, also at this time place an 8x8 Pyrex pan to warm in oven.

Add in order in blender:
1 egg
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp blackberry brandy
1 tsp olive oil
1 pinch of salt

Blend well and let sit for 5 minutes.
Heat electric griddle or skillet to 325, and spray with vegetable oil or butter lightly, pour batter into 5" circles and then rotate pan slightly to spread batter a little bit till around 6 or 7 inches in diameter.  Cook till slightly golden brown on each side.  Once cooked place in a warmed 8x8 pan, and cover with foil.  Use all batter and store in the warmed pan covered.

Once finished, fold the cream cheese/jam gently, till a nice consistency, and spread over crepe, nearly to the edge. Roll crepe starting from one side towards the other, do this several times, and serve on a plate, dust lightly with powdered sugar, and place a dollop of the cream cheese/jam mixture over the crepe, you can garnish with fresh blackberries as well.


Voila, breakfast to die for!!

Note:  the crepes non filled can be made ahead of time, and will store in the fridge well, but can also be frozen, with was paper in between.  Be sure to remove the wax paper before heating!

Great food and a romantic getaway in Michigan can be found at the DeLano Mansion Inn.  Located just a short drive from Holland and Saugatuck Michigan, we are in the heart of the Michigan Winery area, and a short drive from the beach and many other draws for the Southwest Michigan area.
