Instructions

Make crepe batter and prep
1
  • Melt 2 tbsp butter in a small, microwaveable bowl or in a small pot over low heat.
  • Whisk together 3/4 cup flour, 1 tbsp white sugar and 1/8 tsp salt in a large bowl.
  • Whisk in 1/2 cup milk, eggs and melted butter until combined.
  • Whisk in 1/2 cup water until smooth. (NOTE: The batter will be very thin.) Set aside.
  • Halve, pit, then cut plum into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Zest, then juice lemon.
Make plum compote
2
  • Heat a small pot over medium-high heat. 
  • When hot, add 1 tbsp butter, then swirl the pot until melted. 
  • Add plums, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp water. Bring to a simmer.
  • Simmer, stirring often, until plums are tender and slightly reduced, 4-6 min.
  • Remove the pot from heat, then cover to keep warm.
Make crepes
3
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp butter, then swirl the pan until melted.
  • Tilt the pan up on an angle, then scoop 1/3 cup batter into the lower half of the pan. Immediately move the pan in a circular motion to spread batter until it evenly covers the bottom of the pan. Cook until crepe begins to brown and the edges start to peel off easily, 1-2 min. Flip crepe with a spatula, then continue to cook for another 30 sec-1 min.
  • Transfer crepe to a plate, then repeat with 1/2 tbsp butter and 1/3 cup batter until all batter is used.
Whip cream, toast almonds and serve
4
  • Carefully wipe the pan clean with paper towels, then reheat over medium. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring frequently, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate.
  • Add cream, lemon zest and honey to another large bowl. Beat using an electric hand mixer or whisk until stiff peaks form, 2-3 min.
  • To serve, fold each crepe half, then fold in half again to create a triangle. Top with whipped cream, plum compote and toasted almonds.
  • Drizzle maple syrup over top, if desired.
