Crepes from Banat

205

Those who know will understand why I posted this recipe now. The other will appreciate, I hope, a tasty, downright delicious dessert, which I dedicate to Eugen, because he wanted something with vanilla cream. The crepes from Banat have vanilla sauce, a sauce that can turn into a cream if you leave it to cook for two extra minutes. But there’s a long way to go to the sauce, meaning an entire set of simple operations, so simple that even a 10 year old can do them. Here goes: I need eggs. One for the dough (I made ten large pancakes), four for the filling and five for the vanilla sauce.

For the filling, I used cottage cheese, half a kilogram.

For my dessert to taste like vanilla, I used vanilla flavored sugar after the Bourbon method (I store the sugar in an airtight jar with a few vanilla pods). Six full tablespoons.

Three cups of flour, for the crepes.

The zest from a lemon added flavor to the dough and to the filling.

I mixed the flour with a glass of milk (250 ml), a pinch of salt, one egg and a teaspoon of sugar.

To make the crepes fluffy, I used sparkling water, also a glass. The carbon dioxide rises and airs the composition. I don’t use baking soda because of its taste and because it oxidizes the composition.

I baked the crepes and then I let them rest for a while.

For the filling, I mixed the cheese with four egg yolks, a handful of raisins, three tablespoons of sugar and lemon zest. I also squeezed the juice from half a lemon over the cheese.

For the vanilla sauce, I mixed five egg yolk with the rest of the vanilla sugar and a cup of cream.

I put egg white foam over each crepe, I placed all of them in a tray and then I threw them in the pre-heated oven for four minutes.

Meanwhile, I put the yolks whisked with sugar and mixed with cream in a double bottom pot, on low heat. I stirred continuously, until the sauce thickened (be careful, the heat has to be very low, or you can obtain a sweet omelette). All this business with the sauce can take 6-7 minutes, but it’s worth it.

A short time before finishing the sauce, I took the crepes out of the oven. The foam on top had browned nicely.

I ate the crepes while they were still warm.
