Italian Coffee Crepes

Italian Coffee Crepes

Alex Cage

There truly is no wrong way to eat crepes. Almost any variety, from sweet to savory and everything in between, is a true delight. We have tried crepes stuffed with mushrooms and ham, some filled with delicious brie, and others with all form of sweets atop. Today’s recipe is something we hope (and expect) you’ve never tried before- coffee crepes! This recipe uses a blend of dark chocolate and true Italian coffee to create a distinct and unexpected taste.

What You’ll Need

What You’ll Do

  1. Pour half of your coffee into a jug with your whole milk  and set it aside to rest
  2. In another bowl, crack your eggs and add the milk and coffee mixture.
  3. Begin to sift your flour into the bowl, mixing with a whisk continuously.
  4. Set in the refrigerator and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Coarsely chop half of your dark chocolate and add it to your ricotta cheese.
  6. Add your granulated sugar to the ricotta and mix completely.
  7. Transfer this mixture to a pastry or piping bag if you have one. A Ziploc bag will do!
  8. Coarsely chop the rest of your chocolate.
  9. Heat your remaining coffee until it boils lightly and pour in your chocolate. Stir until melted.
  10. Heat a crepe pan or non-stick pan on medium heat and melt a small bit of butter in the pan.
  11. Pour in a ladle of your dough.
  12. Rotate your pan and use the back of the ladle to spread evenly across the pan.
  13. Cook it for about  minute until bubbles start to appear. Once they pop, flip your crepe over gently.
  14. Cook on the other side for about thirty seconds.
  15. Once the crepe is cooked, remove it from the heat and place it in a plate or on a work surface.
  16. Squeeze some of your ricotta filling into your crepe.
  17. Fold it first in half and then in half again so as to obtain a triangle.
  18. Heat your chocolate sauce and drizzle it atop your crepes.
  19. Serve hot!

Pappardelle was first mentioned in writing at the end of the 13th century and became so famous in the Tuscan region that the writer Bocaccio, one of the three fathers of the modern Italian language, mentioned the dish in his famous work The Decameron. But he’s not the only writer to mention the pasta; several Renaissance writers sang the praises of pappardelle in their writing.
