1 cup milk

1/2 cup + ⅛ cup water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

2 eggs (large)

1 tablespoon granulated white sugar

⅛ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

4-5 apples (cut into cubes)

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons water

1 tablespoon butter [i used salted (you can use unsalted butter as well])

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

1/2-3/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder (depending on how much you love cinnamon)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Make the crepe batter

In a small pan on medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.

The butter will melt, then bubble up and them calm down.

It will turn brown in color in 5-6 minutes and you will have a nutty aroma by then. Be very careful here because it can also burn and you don't want that. As soon as it turns brown, remove butter from heat and let it cool down

To a blender add - milk, water, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon powder, melted brown butter.

Now add flour, salt and sugar.

Blend till everything is well combined and you get a smooth batter. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Prepare the apple cinnamon filling

In the meanwhile prepare the apple cinnamon filling. Melt some butter in a pan. Add chopped apples, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder and water.

Cook the mixture for few minutes till the apples get soft [around 5 minutes] yet maintain their shape. Remove from heat and set aside.

Make the crepes

Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Spray it with a non-stick spray.

Pour around 1/3 cup batter in the center of the pan and immediately swirl the pan around to spread the batter evenly.

Cook for a minute or so and flip the crepe once you see bubbles on top. Cook the other side for another minute or so and remove from pan.

Repeat the process of making crepes till the batter is finished.

Make Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Place the bowl and the whisk attachment in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes before you whip the cream.

Beat heavy cream with the wire whisk attachment of your stand mixer or using your hand mixer till it forms soft peaks.

Add sugar, cinnamon powder and vanilla extract and beat again till the cream form stiff peaks. Set aside.

To assemble the crepes, place the apple-cinnamon filling and the cinnamon whipped cream on one side of the crepe.
