Crepes suzette with Caracao liqueur

I look forward to Sunday mornings. This is the day my husband does breakfast, and it’s usually Crepes. He likes to add his own little twist to recipes, such as adding a little orange or lemon zest. What a lovely smell to wake up to! For the very energetic cooks, I have the recipe for Crepes Suzette a little further down.

Syrup for Crepes Suzette

Orange flavoured syrup with the additional fruity taste of Curacao liqueur.
For a dramatic breakfast, the Curacao can be set on fire just before serving.

Caution : before setting fire to the Curacao – for the experienced cook only. Keep kids and pets away!

*Note: All 6 tablespoons of the Curacao can be added to the butter, sugar and oranges at the same time, then use it as a drizzling syrup over the pancakes while being served.
This is our preferred method. Especially for anyone that wants to control their sugar intake.
