Do I have a dessert for you…..French Toast Sourdough Crepes with Maple Cream and Candied Bacon! Oh ya baby! Even better, they are made with coconut milk…..so they’re lactose-free!
This month’s Sourdough Surprises Challenge is Crepes, but you probably got that from the insanely long title! I have to admit something to you, I almost missed this challenge! I missed the announcement post, and I forgot to go check to see what this month’s challenge was. Thankfully, I happened to see a post on facebook…..today! So I put my thinking cap on and started dreaming up all different types of crepes. My first thought was chocolate, but them I remembered the cupcakes that I had been wanting to make. So instead of french toast cupcakes, you are getting french toast sourdough crepes…..
We didn’t need to have bacon burgers tonight anyway 🙂 I cooked up my favorite bacon…..
and pulled a can of coconut milk out of the refrigerator to make the maple whipped cream…..
and kept my fingers crossed, because I have never made crepes before! They were so easy, and took less time than I expected. This is the recipe that we were given for inspiration, and I added cinnamon and vanilla to achieve a french toast flavor. Okay, one more shot…..
Yes, they were as delicious as they look. I honestly did not even notice a sourdough flavor. I asked Alex if they were worthy of sharing with the world. He gave them a thumbs up! I did have one small issue as I started to make the batter. The lid had been pushed off to the side of my sourdough crock, so the top layer was crusted over. So I scraped off the top, mixed it together, fed it, and it was just fine. I added a rubber band to try and keep the lid on!
Sourdough starter is very forgiving, so you have no excuses to not try it 🙂
Below the recipe, there should be the link to see all of the other wonderful crepes that have been created for this challenge. Enjoy!
