The perfect raclette ends with a dessert. Therefore I give you this raclette recipe: crêpes with baked apples. Covered with caramel sauce the perfect end of a raclette. Airy and full of flavor and off course prepared with the raclette.
This dessert is a great end of a raclette dinner party. And because the Holidays are coming (in the Netherlands we celebrate Sinterklaas and off course Christmas) and we're still in fall, I used the apples from this falls harvest. I baked them slightly and rolled them in very thin crêpes. The caramel sauce, which you prepared in advanced is poured on top. For sure a sweet dessert!
- you want to prepare crêpes in instead of traditional Dutch pancakes, you use more eggs for this batter.
- crêpes are supposed to be very thin, use about 2 tablespoons of batter and spread it in the pan by swirling it.
- you had some clumps in your batter (and you don't want that in a crêpe batter), use a blender to get them out.
