- A pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp. sugar

- 40 g (3 tbsp.) browned butter

Crêpe batter

  1. In a bowl, combine 3 eggs with 250 ml (1 c.) milk. Add the flour. Blend with a handmixer until frothy.

Apple compote

  2. Butter a round oven-proof dish. Place a first crêpe in the dish, add a spoonful of the apple compote and a touch of apricot jam.
  3. Place another crêpe on top and continue layering until all 12 crêpes have been used, being careful to divide the compote and the jam evenly.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and cook in a bain-marie in a medium oven for 40 minutes.
