700 gm (4 punnets) assorted berries, such as blackberries and raspberries Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 2 tbsp raw vanilla sugar, or to taste, plus extra for dusting To serve: ricotta   Crespelle 250 ml (1 cup) milk 85 gm plain flour 2 eggs 50 gm butter, for greasing pan

Method

  • 01
  • For crespelle, process milk, flour, eggs and a pinch of salt in a food processor until well combined. Heat 1 tsp butter in an 18cm-diameter non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbsp batter to centre of pan and swirl pan to spread batter as thinly and evenly as possible. Cook until just set (1-1½ minutes), turn carefully with a spatula and cook until golden (20-30 seconds). Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining batter. Makes 12.
