Muesli Crêpe Sandwich Filled with Fruit and Cream Cheese
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla
3/4 cup (175 mL) milk
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
3/4 cup (175 mL) flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) muesli
Butter for cooking
1/4 lb (125 g) Canadian Cream Cheese, softened
3 tbsp (45 mL) milk
3 tbsp (45 mL) honey, maple syrup or sugar
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground ginger
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground cardamom (optional)
1 1/3 cups (325 mL) fresh or frozen fruit, defrosted
In a bowl, beat eggs with sugar and vanilla. Stir in milk then butter.
In a large bowl, combine flour and muesli. Make a well in centre and pour in egg mixture. Stir until smooth.
In a frying pan over medium heat melt a little butter. Pour in 2 tbsp (30 mL) of batter at a time, to make 8 to 10 small crêpes. Spread batter, if necessary, using back of a spoon. Cook for about 2 minutes per side or until crêpes are golden.
Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat Cream Cheese with milk. Add honey and spices until well blended. Fold fruit into Cream Cheese mixture.
On each serving plate, place a crêpe, fill with Cream Cheese and fruit mixture, top with a second crêpe and garnish with a little more Cream Cheese and fruit mixture. Serve immediately.
