Orange Oolong Crepe: a fun, unique and delicious dessert for anyone who likes to make crepes. I think this would be a great thing to make at a party. I had this yesterday at the NW Tea Fest. In hindsight, it was perhaps not the best choice for lunch (very sweet), but how could I not try it? ;-) The crepe maker was very kind to answer all my questions.
First, he poured the very thin crepe batter onto the griddle and spread it paper-thin with a special tool. (I use a cast iron crepe pan at home.)
He let is set and then sprinkled on sugar, which he caramelized with a torch.
Done and delicious! It had a crunchy texture from the caramelized sugar and tea leaf, and a tangy-sweet flavor. Some of the sugars, now warmed and combined with the citrus, melted into a delicious syrup.
I think I will try to recreate this, though I will leave off the caramelized sugar. As much as I have a sweet tooth, it was a bit too much for me. Instead, I will use a nut filler (maybe walnut?). I think the rest is good. What do you think?
