Pancakes with chocolate sauce

Heavenly light crêpes… but take my advice and don’t use the Pyrex!

Preparation30 Mins
Cooking Time35 Mins

The mention of pancakes – or crêpes – always reminds me of the first dish I ever cooked, crêpes suzette. Carefully I cooked, folded and arranged the crêpes on a Pyrex dish. Next, I poured over the syrupy, orange sauce. Finally, as I carried the dish to the table where my family waited but … Crash! That Pyrex dish, which I’d overheated, shattered into thousands of pieces. My ego was crushed. As you know, this catastrophe didn’t put me off cooking, or making pancakes, and I urge you to try these crêpes, served with chocolate sauce.
