Soft red pancakes, with a very creamy spread of caramel salé, caramel flavored with salty butter.

Tant pour tant, equal weight.
(1 : 1 : 1) sugar : cream : salted butter.
Melt the sugar into blond caramel, add in the warmed cream. Remove from stove, add butter.
See what you can do with it here, I mean besides eating it all with a spoon.
You can also continue :

To the hot tant pour tant caramel, I have mixed in 2 additional volumes of cream. It became very liquid, it has a cream textured when cooled. I have then added a few bits of rock salt.
It can be used like a jam or a spread.

The pancakes are also tant pour tant, 1:1:1. It’s flour (plus baking powder), tofu, carrot paste (grounds when I juiced kintoki carrots with mandarin oranges).

A whirlpool of black sesame steamed crepes…


Purple lunch. Nutty small steamed crepes and huge beans.

Actually they are more like tortilla or Chinese chunbing.
Recipe :
I mixed a cup of flour, 2 tbs of nuka (rice brans), 2 tbs of black tahini (pasted black sesame), a little salt, hot water. Kneaded a little. Formed those rounds. And I cooked them in frying pan (with a lid and humidity).

Garlic veggie mix (zucchini, bell pepper, fava beans) from frozen vegetables.


Spicy hanamame big beans.

Crêpes soufflées aux kumquats et à la noix de coco

Dessert crêpes soufflées with all the golds of my pantry…

The carrot crepes served as a base. I filled them with coconut and Grand Marnier appareil.

Baked.

Then decorated with kumquats, caramelised with sugar, coconut oil and more Grand-Marnier.

Veggieful crêpe festival…

February 2nd, Chandeleur, French crêpe day. Let’s make them colorful to celebrate the Spring. The weather is really cooperating…

Carrot crêpes.

Spinach crêpes.

With 2 fungi, shimeji and shiitake.

Wrapped !

Crepe day : pale sun thick crepes

Spring…not yet. It’s snowing outside. Snowing on my crepes. The Sun is very week. I still celebrate the Chandeleur and flip my crepes.

To get a thick soft crepe, use twice as much of batter and cook it on low heat, longly. Japanese crepes are nearly always super thick and soft, and totally white, served cold. These are served hot.
I perfumed the batter with vanilla and rum, and replaced the milk by water and condensed milk. Dessert crepes.

Plus fruits from the sun mikan mandarin oranges, mango (frozen), and kumquats for their skin.

Plus a ts of condensed milk, and coconut flakes.
