What do you need for Crêpes with Baked Apples
For the preparation of this Raclette dessert with crêpes you need the following ingredients (you can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog):
- Caramel Sauce - A creamy sauce that you pour over dessert after baking. You can buy the sauce ready-made (or use a delicious homemade salted caramel sauce).
- Flour - This recipe uses all purposeflour.
- Eggs - For crêpes, you need a lot of eggs (more compared to pancakes). Use eggs size L.
- Butter - Baking in butter makes the apples and crêpes extra creamy.
- Apples - Take sweet apples like Jonagold, Elstar or Pink Lady.
- Lemon - Brush the apple slices with lemon juice, which prevents browning and therefore you can make them ahead of time.
- Brown Sugar - Use to caramelize the apple. Brown sugar gives extra flavor to the apple.
How to prepare Crêpes with Caramelized Apples in a Raclette Pan
A recipe with extensive steps, the right amount of ingredients, and which you can also easily print can be found at the bottom of the blog.
- Place flour and salt in a bowl and pour in the milk while mixing. If you do get lumps in your batter, use a immersion blender to remove them.
- Then add the eggs one at a time. The amount of eggs in a crêpe batter is much higher than in pancakes. The batter is also more liquid. That's because crêpes are supposed to be thin. You use a little bit of batter and let it flow as thinly as possible into the raclette pan.
- Peel the apples and remove the core. Cut into thin slices. Brush each slice with lemon juice so they don't brown.
- Then dip the apples in the brown sugar.
Prepare in a raclette pan: Brush a pan with butter and pour in a small spoon of batter. Rotate the pan so that it covers the bottom. Place in the raclette set and bake the crêpe until golden brown. In a second pan, melt the butter and place the apples in it. Bake until the apples are golden brown on both sides. Place a crêpe on your plate and spread the apples on top. Pour some caramel sauce on your raclette dessert and eat right away.
