Serves: 10 crepes
Ingredients
Blender Crepes
  • 1⅓ cups milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons (42 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
Champagne Poached Pears
  • 750ml champagne
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ vanilla bean, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 5 pears, peeled
To serve
  • Vanilla ice cream
Instructions
To make the champagne poached pears
  1. In a medium sized pot, add in the champagne, water, sugar and vanilla bean and heat on medium-high heat until almost boiling, stirring occasionally.
  2. Turn the heat down to low, and add in the pears. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the pears using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Continue to simmer the champagne syrup for another hour, until it reduces to about 2 cups. Make the crepes as the champagne syrup is simmering.
To make the crepes
  1. Mix everything together in a blender, or add all the ingredients into a medium bowl and blend with a stick blender. Allow to rest 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a cast-iron crepe pan on medium to medium-high heat (I switched between setting 5/10 and 6/10 on my stove). Make sure you give enough time for the pan to evenly heat through (about 5-7 minutes). If the pan is not hot enough, the crepes may start to stick to it.
  3. Add about ½ tablespoon of oil to the crepe pan and give it a quick wipe using a paper towel. Repeat this process to add on more oil as needed while you are cooking the crepes.
  4. Once the oil is hot, add ⅓ cup of crepe batter, and quickly spread it around the pan evenly using a crepe rake. You can also try to quickly tilt the pan to swirl it, but I find it easier to use the crepe rake to make even sized crepes. The crepes should be very thin.
  5. Let each crepe cook for about 1 minute, then flip over and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  6. Remove the crepe and place on a cooling rack. The crepe will cool quickly, so if you are short on space, you can begin to stack them up after a few minutes of cooling.
  7. Repeat with remaining batter.
To assemble the crepes
  1. Slice the pears into ½ inch (1cm) thick slices and remove the core.
  2. Place several slices of pears on the middle of a crepe. Slowly fold the two sides of the crepe over the pears, creating a triangle. Repeat with remaining crepes.
  3. Before serving, add on two scoops of vanilla ice cream on top of each crepe and drizzle with the reduced champagne syrup.
