Walnut Crepes (V)

When I was younger I often ordered crepes with walnut filling for dessert. It was a staple dessert in Slovenian restaurants. It’s been quite a while since I had them but their taste is quite vivid in my memory. In this recipe I created a plant based version of this otherwise non-vegan dish which I think tastes almost the same.

I make the crepes in the same way as I make them in baked crepes with vegan cottage cheese, vegan crepes with strawberry jam 4 ways and in Biscoff caramelized banana crepes. The filling is made of ground walnuts and cinnamon with warm coconut cream poured over the walnuts. I then sweeten the filling with maple syrup and add some rum for the final touch. I sprinkle some powdered sugar for decoration. Finally I place some whipped coconut cream beside the crepe and I drizzle a little bit of my hot fudge sauce over it.

Ingredients
  

Filling:

  • 50 g walnuts ground
  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon powder
  • 50 ml (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) coconut cream* only the cream part from a can of coconut cream (without water)
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) maple syrup
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) rum

Crepe:

  • 30 g all purpose flour sifted
  • a small pinch of turmeric powder for colour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) sparkling water
  • 50 ml (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) unsweetened soy milk
  • 10 g vegan butter melted
  • 16 g (1 tbsp) unsweetened soy yogurt (I make my own at home)
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) maple syrup

For making crepe:

  • 1/3 tsp vegan butter

To decorate:

Instructions
 

Filling:

  • Crush walnuts in a food processor. Transfer them to a smaller bowl.
  • Add cinnamon and mix.
  • Melt coconut cream over medium heat then pour it over walnuts.
  • Add maple syrup and rum. Mix together well.
  • Let the filling stand so that it thickens while you prepare the crepe.

Crepe:

  • Sift the flour then add turmeric and salt. Mix together.
  • Add all other ingredients and mix together until there are no more lumps.
  • Melt 1/3 tsp of vegan butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat and spill the crepe mixture over it. Rotate the pan with the handle so that the mixture spreads evenly around the pan.
  • Wait until the top of the crepe is no longer wet then flip it over. After the other side is cooked, flip it once more and cook for a little bit. Transfer crepe to a larger plate.

Assemble:

  • Spread filling all over the crepe then fold the crepe in half and then fold that in half again.
  • Sprinkle some powdered sugar over the crepe.
  • Place whipped coconut cream at the side.
  • Drizzle some hot fudge sauce on top of crepe.

Notes

*Put a can of coconut cream in the refrigerator a few hours before starting if it’s not already there.
 
*Prep time does not include time for making hot fudge sauce.
