Ingredients for Buttermilk Spice Crepes
First, make crepes, adding cinnamon, cloves and ginger to our basic buttermilk crepe batter. Cover crepes to keep warm. If you made your crepes ahead of time, remove them from the refrigerator or freezer, wrap them in foil and reheat in a 325-degree oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed.
Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat. Add brown sugar and stir together until combined. Add apples, lemon juice, cinnamon and ½ cup of cider. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook until apples pierce easily with a fork but are not too mushy.
While apples are cooking, place raisins in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with remaining cider. Microwave for 30 seconds. Drain raisins and add to apple mixture. Stir together and let cook for another minute. Remove from heat.
Assemble crepes: Fold crepes into quarters. Put two crepes on each plate. Divide apple-raisin mixture equally among the crepes. Serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings (2 crepes each)
