Saffron crepes recipe

Lotoise crepes deliciously flavored with the precious spice. The secret comes from the slow infusion in the pancake batter: it allows the saffron to diffuse the aromatic richness that will be found in the pancakes. Put away that jar of spread!

Baking

  1. Heat a lightly oiled nonstick skillet. Once hot, pour a ladle of batter into it and swirl it around to spread it over the entire surface. Place on the heat and when the edge of the crepe turns light brown, it's time to turn it over.
  2. As the pancakes are cooked, place them on a plate and cover them with aluminum foil to keep them warm.
    For dressing, fold the crepe in four and add a few pistils of saffron, no need to add sugar, the saffron syrup is enough.
