The other day I was craving some fried apples from the Cracker Barrel. Alas, there isn’t a single Cracker Barrel where I live. So I decided to see if I could replicate the recipe. It was breakfast time so, of course, I needed to eat them for breakfast. And I am so glad I did! These crepes are delicious!
The Boy especially loved his with a big dollop of whipped cream. So did I!
Fried Apple Crepes
Crepes: (You can also just use your own crepe recipe if you have a favorite)
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C milk
1/2 C water
1 T butter
2 apples, cored, peeled and sliced.
4 T sugar
2 dashes of cinnamon
2 dashes of nutmeg
1 pouch of cinnamon Tree Top Apple Sauce
In a medium bowl, mix milk and flour. When it’s combined, add the eggs and water. Beat until it’s well mixed. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. When it’s bubbly, add the apples. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. The juice from the apples will seep out, and the apples simmer nicely in the juice. Take off the lid and stir in the sugar and spices. Replace cover and let simmer for another 15 minutes, or until the apples are soft. The juice will boil down and the sugar will make it thick.
When your apple are about done, heat your griddle to medium-high (it needs to be hotter than if you were making pancakes). Pour out the batter, about 1/3 C. Cook until golden brown and flip.
Once the crepe is done, flip onto a plate, add a small amount of apple filling on the edge and tightly
roll up. Garnish with powdered sugar or whipped cream. Eat fresh and warm!
These are so good, I have made them too many times this week (if that is possible!). I’m all out of apples.
Happy cooking ( and eating)!
