With Mothers Day just around the corner I’m dedicating this recipe to my beautiful Mum! My best friend, my rock, and forever my inspiration. It was a tradition that every year on Mothers Day my mum would make this incredible dish of Crepe Suzzete for her Mum (my Nan), my Grandmother and the whole family to sit down together after dinner and devour. Since my Nan’s passing in 2007 this tradition had also passed. So here’s to another Mothers Day where we can celebrate all the amazing things that you have done for us, for loving us, for putting up with us and to bringing back the tradition of Nan’s love of Crepe Suzzete.

For those who are unfamiliar with the traditional French dessert, think light and fluffy crepes with a caramelised sugar, butter and orange sauce with rich alcoholic flavours of Grand Marnier or orange Curacao Liqueur. So much deliciousness, however don’t be fooled by the orange in them – you still can’t try disguise them as healthy (nice try though!). After multiple attempts of “crepe-ing” and burning my orange sauce into toffee (some might call this a win) I’m now ready to share this gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free Crepe Suzzete with my fellow foodies. Hoorahhhh!! I do apologies though; you won’t be finding any alcohol in these bad boys but I promise you the taste is certainly not compromised!
