Cr?pes with Raspberries & Marmalade

Everyone loves cr?pes. At their best they are very thin, and delicious when filled with fresh fruits and cream. You can, of course, replace the raspberries with other berries.

Makes 12-18

Ingredients
300g plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
1 tsp caster sugar
2 eggs
500ml milk
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp butter
100g orange marmalade
200ml cream (40% fat)
500g raspberries
icing sugar, for dusting

Method
Combine the sifted flour, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour the eggs and half of the milk into the well. Using a whisk, first mix the eggs and milk together, then gradually incorporate the flour, slowly adding the rest of the milk to form a smooth, thin mixture. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or until required. (If you are in a great rush, you can use it immediately, but the cr?pes will not be as smooth.)

Heat the oil and butter in a cr?pe pan or other small frying pan until light golden, then whisk into the cr?pe batter.

Place the pan over high heat. Pour enough of the cr?pe mixture into the hot pan to cover the base of the pan. Twirl the pan in a smooth motion to form a thin, even cr?pe. When the top of the cr?pe starts to become dry and the base is golden brown, pick it up with a spatula and quickly turn it over. When the base is cooked, transfer the cr?pe to a plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture, without adding any more butter or oil to the pan. If the cr?pes begin to stick, wipe the pan with absorbent paper and melt a little butter in the pan before cooking the next one.

Spread each cr?pe with a little marmalade and cream. Top with a few raspberries, fold over and serve, dusted with icing sugar.
