Easy Dessert Crepe

Because my grandfather has the world's most prolific plum tree, we're always seeking fresh plum recipes.

Simmered in a sauce of brandy, apple juice, and ginger, plums make a tantalizing topping for warm dessert crepes.

In fact...dare I say it?

They're plum good!

And now that fresh plums are available nearly year-round (imported from Chile), you don't have to wait for late summer to make this delicious treat.


  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • 4 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 4 peeled and sliced fresh plums (stones removed)
  • 4 tbsp of brandy
  • 2 cups of apple juice
  • ¼ tsp of fresh minced ginger
  • 3 tsp of cornstarch dissolved in ¼ cup of water
  • dessert crepes

Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Add brandy. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in apple juice, ginger and plum slices. Simmer for 10 minutes on low heat until plums are tender. Add cornstarch-water mixture and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Let simmer for 2 minutes until sauce is thickened.

Assemble crepes: Place two warm dessert crepes on each plate. Ladle 5-6 plum slices and ¼ cup of sauce over each serving. Serve immediately.

Yield: 4 servings (2 crepes each)
