Ironically, my first encounter with them was in a Spanish hotel forty years ago.

They are a traditional food especially in the Brittany region of France in the north west.

This is just one of the delights from the gorgeous region of Brittany. 

You will see these little crepes almost everywhere and they can have savory or sweet fillings.

However, for this recipe it is going to be a delicious sweet crepe which you can make for any occasion you like.

Imagine giving your family these beautiful little pancakes for a treat or impressing your friends when they come over for a meal, simple yet so tasty without costing a fortune.

So you don't need a special occasion to make these little darlings, just a passion for good food and a simple recipe to help you!

And here it is, keep this one handy in your kitchen for when you want a treat!

It isn't the classic all-in-the-pan recipe as the classic crepes suzette recipe, but it's somewhat easier to do it this way.
