Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 4

Ingredients

  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1 cup milk
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  5. 1 cup frozen whole strawberries, slightly thawed
  6. 2 dried figs, finely chopped
  7. 2 tbsp honey
  8. 1 tbsp Aged balsamic vinegar of Modena
  9. 1 tsp butter
  10. 1 tsp vegetable oil
  11. 1 cup vanilla ice cream, divided

Method

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Add egg and sugar and whisk until smooth, about 1 min. Let stand while making filling.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together strawberries, figs and honey. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 min. Remove from heat, crush strawberries with a fork and add balsamic vinegar. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Heat a 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt butter and oil together in microwave for 30 sec.; stir to blend. When pan is hot, coat it with the oil-butter mixture using a brush or folded paper towel. Pour 1/3 cup (75 mL) batter in pan and swirl pan to coat thinly.
  4. Cook until bottom is golden and edges start to curl, about 1 min. Using a heat-resistant spatula, flip over and cook other side, about 30 sec. Remove to a platter; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.
  5. Spread 2 tbsp (30 mL) strawberry mixture over half a crêpe. Fold crêpe in half; fold again to form a triangle. Repeat with remaining crêpes and top each with 1 tbsp (15 mL) strawberry mixture. Serve each crêpe with 1/4 cup (60 mL) vanilla ice cream.
