1 cup milk
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flourChocolate Sauce
1 cup whipping cream
8 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped
1. Put the butter, chocolate, and milk in a saucepan and heat to melt. Beat the eggs with the sugar in a bowl. Add the vanilla, then the flour. Beat in the chocolate mixture. Strain into a jug and let sit half an hour. Add more milk or water if necessary to give the consistency of thin cream. Fry the crêpes, using a bit of oil if you don’t have a no-stick pan.
2. Fill the crêpes with sliced banana or strawberries and sweetened, cinnamon-flecked whipped cream. Look best in triangle. Drizzle chocolate sauce over top.Chocolate Sauce
