Classic French crêpes are one of the most easiest dessert to make. For them you basicaly need just a few simple ingredients, which once combined result in delicious sweets that can be turned into amazing dessert with various toppings.
The basic ingredients for crepes are eggs, milk and flour but you can add some other ingredients to make them better. This crêpes batter included some yogurt, which gives light and silky texture to the crepes. There is also melted butter which gives moistureness to the crêpes. We added also some ground cardamom, but feel free to add any spices you fancy - nutmeg, cinnamon, piment...
First whisk egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof glass bowl. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and grated lemon zest. Place the bowl over the saucepan of gently simmering water. Whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved and then switch to the silicon spatula and stir constantly until the mixture begins to thickens, about 10 minutes.
Take the bowl from the heat and add butter cutted into small pieces. Stir until the butter completely melt and you get silky lemon curd. The consistency of lemon curd should be somewhere between a custard and a pudding. Strain to get rid of any lumps. Sieve the curd to get rid of lemon zest.
Leave the curd to cool for a few minutes, then cover with cling film and place in the fridge until used.
These little pancakes are fried on non-stick frying pan with a few drops of vegetable oil. Heat the pan on a medium heat, then lower the heat, and drop one tablespoon of batter to the pan. Fry for 3 minutes on one side, then flip to other side and fry for another 2 minutes. When pancakes are brown and puffed a bit they are ready. Serve them immediately.
