Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. How do you celebrate? Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for a enjoying a delicious, special brunch and this year it falls on a Sunday!
I whipped up some Orange Blossom Crepes and they would make a yummy addition to your brunch Valentine’s Day celebration. The key to this delicious brunch is the crepe filling. It’s made with cream cheese, Tampico Mango Punch, and a touch of sweetness. Tampico Mango Punch combines Oranges, Tangerines and Mangoes. Garnish with a slice of orange and some powdered sugar and you have an amazing treat! I decorated with some candles and flowers to give the meal a little Valentine romance.
Crepes are much easier to make than you would think. They add a flare to your meal without a lot of difficulty or complicated ingredients.
Orange Blossom Crepes
1 package of cream cheese
1/3 cup of Tampico Orange Mango Juice
1 tablespoon of sugar
Filling Directions: Soften cream cheese. Combine ingredients and mix on medium speed until smooth.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Tampico Orange Mango Juice
Crepe Directions: Add flour to a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour. Add the eggs to the center of the well. Using a fork beat the eggs and gradually add flour from the sides. When it starts getting thick, start slowly adding the milk and Tampico Orange Mango Juice.
Mix well, crepe batter should be slightly thinner than pancake batter. Preheat a frying pan. If you want brown-cooked spots on your crepe, put a small amount of butter in the pan. If you like golden crepes, use a nonstick pan and no butter. Pour in about 1/4 cup of batter – how much you need depends on the size of your pan, this is where the practice comes in! Pick up the pan and twirl it so that the batter covers the bottom of the pan. If it doesn’t quite make it, next time use more batter. If it’s too thick, next time use less.
When the top is fairly solid, it means the downside is done. Using a pancake turner, flip it over. Give it a few more minutes, check, and take out when done.
Place filling in the center of each crepe and fold in sides. Garnish with bits of fresh orange and a twist. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
And of course, serve with a cold glass of Tampico Orange Mango juice. The vibrant color of this delicious drink will brighten your table. Enjoy!
