Recipe: Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Crepes with Mascarpone Topping

Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Crepes with Mascarpone Topping Recipe

So, I have a confession: I'm kind of obsessed with crepes. Ever since I got our awesome new crepe pan, I've been whipping up batch after batch of delicious crepes - but this recipe may have to be my absolute favourite. 

Not only is it so simple to make, it's so delicious you'll almost want to lick the plate (Jesse would, but I'm a bit more lady like than that :P). 

The apples are super juicy and delicious and covered in cinnamon, the crepes are light and the perfect vessel for soaking up the incredible creamy mascarpone topping that turns into a heavenly dollop of goodness once to warm up from the apples. 

Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Crepes with Mascarpone Topping Recipe

This recipe kind of took my crepe addiction to a whole new level. In fact, I'd just devoured them (at the little blue "Southern In-Law table" whilst taking photos - bite shots are important guys!!) and I called Jesse and said "do you know how you spell genius? K-R-I-S-T-Y". Modest? Apparently not... But these crepes are so incredibly good I can afford to blow my own trumpet. 

It's the combination of crepes, warm cinnamon apples and creamy mascarpone that takes this dish over the edge. It's perfect for breakfast or lunch or dessert or really any time of the day! (Jesse says sweet lunches are odd, unless it's PB&J, but I say any excuse to eat breakfasty foods is fine with me!) 

But enough yapping from me, let's get onto the recipe so you can make it ASAP!

Healthy Apple and Cinnamon Crepes with Mascarpone Topping Recipe

Apple and Cinnamon Crepes with a Creamy Mascarpone Topping serves 1
gluten free, low fat, sugar free, clean eating friendly

For the crepes: 
1/4 cup gluten free plain flour (or regular flour) 
1/3 cup milk of choice 
1 egg 

For the apples: 
1 small apple, diced (I used a Granny Smith)
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1 tbsp water

For the mascarpone topping:
1 heaped tablespoon mascarpone
Maple syrup, to taste
A pinch of salt 

First, mix together your crepe batter in a small bowl and place in the fridge (not mandatory but I have convinced myself it helps haha
Sauté your apples and cinnamon in a small saucepan with the water, cooking and stirring until the apples have softened. You may need some more water, just use your best judgement. 
Meanwhile, mix together your mascarpone mix - adding enough maple syrup to reach your desired level of sweetness.
Next, heat up a small non stick crepe pan or frying pan over a medium high heat. 
Rub with a little bit of butter or lightly spray with oil.
Pour half of your crepe batter onto the pan, swirling the pan to evenly spread out the mixture. 
Wait until your edges begin to curl up and the top of your crepe has set and gently flip the crepes over to the other side using your fingers or a spatula. 
Cook on the other side for about 1 minute and set aside. 
Repeat with the remaining crepe mixture. 
Once your crepes have cooked, fold each in half and in half again and place onto a plate. Top your crepes with your cooked apples and then dollop your mascarpone mix on top. 
Devour immediately! 

But tell me, are you a crepe fan? What's your favourite toppings?
