Recipes Hints and Tips:

  • Lemon Crepes with Orange Sauce are suitable to freeze without the sauce.  Layer the crepes between sheets of baking paper and seal in an air tight container for up to two weeks.
  • Serve with a light dusting of icing sugar or with ice cream.
  • For a diabetic friendly version, omit the sugar.  The natural sweetness of the orange will be enough.
