Crepes with Cardamom Baked Pears
This recipe is super cute, elegant and very very tasty. It takes a bit of patience as you do have to bake the pear in the oven for quite a while, but trust me it is so worth it once you're done. I hope you give this recipe a go and remember to tag me @mealsbymiri on Instagram if you do so I can see your creations!
Ingredients: Baked pear:
1tbsp maple syrup
200C for 45 minutes
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla extract
1/4tsp fine table salt
320g unsweetened soy milk
To serve: Vegan whipped cream and maple syrup.
Slice the pear in half and add to an oven safe dish. Add the butter, maple syrup and cardamom and toss until both halves are completely coated. Bake in the oven at 200c for about 45 minutes, flipping halfway, until the pear is golden and completely cooked through.
To make the crepes, start by combining the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Add the soy milk and whisk until smooth. Let the batter rest for about 30 minutes before cooking. To cook the crepes, simply use a ladle to transfer batter to a lightly greased pan on medium heat (the amount will depend on the size of your pan and how big you want your crepe to be). Quickly use the back of the ladle to spread the batter out by starting in the centre and moving it in circular motions out to the edges of the pan. Leave the crepe until it’s cooked through enough to flip before flipping and cooking for a few seconds on the other side until it’s all done. Transfer to a plate and repeat until you’ve used up all the batter.
Serve the crepes with your baked pear, and some vegan whipped cream. Drizzle with some maple syrup and enjoy.
