One of the bright spots to emerge from a prolonged period of staying at home is the fact that people have been honing their culinary skills. As a result, one of the most popular topics online over the past few months has been recipes. Wildberry Lodge would like to share a recipe that has become a favorite of our guests for both breakfast and dessert: Glenda’s Peach Crepes!
Let’s Make Peach Crepes!
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¼ cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Zest from 1 orange
Peach Vanilla Syrup:
- 1 cup of sugar
- 4 medium peaches
- 3 cups of water
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- Blend all ingredients in a mixing bowl (I use my immersion blender in a 4 cup measuring cup to reduce clean-up)
- Heat non-stick pan to medium/medium high heat
- Spray warm pan with cooking spray
- Add 2 oz (I use a small ladle) of batter to pan and swirl the pan to spread the batter evenly over bottom. (if bubbles form immediately, the pan is too hot – reduce heat)
- After the batter is set, flip the crepe to slightly brown the top side (30 sec) and remove the crepe to a plate (cover to keep warm)
Repeat steps for additional crepes.
Directions for Peach Vanilla Syrup:
- Heat 3 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar to simmer
- Score peaches into ½ inch slices and place into boiling water until skin peels up slightly – time will vary 2-5 minutes depending on ripeness
- Remove peaches from hot water and allow to cool.
- Discard the peel – peel should release from peach flesh easily
- Reduce temperature to low, so that water is barely simmering
- Place peeled peaches back into water for 10 minutes (l5 minutes if they are very ripe) to allow further cooking
- Remove peaches from water and place in bowl until cool enough to handle. Remove wedges from pit and place in bowl.
- Reduce peach/sugar water to ½ volume until slightly syrupy
- Add ½ tsp of vanilla to peach syrup
- Fold crepes into desired shape
- Place peach wedges on top
- Drizzle with peach vanilla syrup
- Top with your favorite greek yogurt for breakfast or ice cream for a dessert dish
