Rainbow Crepe Recipe
For all of the crepes, we used Sweetpea Pantry Pancake Mix 220g, 250ml almond milk and 1 egg along with a tsp of natural colourings.
Yellow: 1 tsp Turmeric Pink: 1 tsp Pitaya Powder Green: 1 tsp Matcha Powder Blue: 1 tsp Butterfly Pea Flower Powder
Yellow - Griddled Lemon & Maple Cream, aka, a fancy version of the classic Lemon & Sugar.
Griddle lemon slices until they start to brown slightly. Set aside.
For the Maple Cream: In a saucepan, mix 3 tbsp maple syrup, 3 tbsp oat cream (I used Oatly) and 1 tbsp Tahini together.
Heat on a low heat for 5 mins and whisk together.
Pink - Caramelised Banana and Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce, aka a fancy version of bananas and Nutella.
Melt 50g good quality dark chocolate on a low setting in the microwave. Once melted, add 50g hazelnut butter and heat again on low for another minute. Combine well.
Dry fry the flaked almonds in a clean frying pan (no oil) over a medium heat for a few minutes, constantly shaking the pan to make sure they don't burn.
Caramelise the bananas on a griddle pan over a medium heat until browning on one side.
Slice and smother with the chocolate sauce and toasted flaked almonds.
Green - Toasted marshmallows and strawberries with a drizzle of the sauce from above.
Blue - Blood Orange Chia Jam and Chocolate, aka a fancy Jaffa (pan) Cake.
For the Blood orange chia jam: Put the juice and zest from 5 blood oranges in a small non stick saucepan, along with 4 tbsp chia seeds and 1 tbsp coconut sugar. Heat slowly on a low heat for 10 minutes until a jam-like consistency has formed. Sprinkle with shaved dark chocolate.
