Serves 4

 

Blood-Orange Curd

110g caster sugar

4 egg yolks

125ml blood-orange juice

250g unsalted butter, chopped

Crepes

1 cup plain flour 

½ cup caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp 

1½ cup milk 

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted,

plus extra for brushing

2 egg yolks 

½ cup blood-orange juice

vanilla-bean ice-cream, to serve

Make curd: Place sugar and egg yolks in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water; whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture is light and fluffy. Slowly add orange juice, whisking until incorporated. Gradually add butter; whisk until melted. Whisk for 4-5 minutes, or until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Set aside to cool at room temperature.

Make crepes: Place flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, milk, butter, and egg yolks in a bowl; whisk until smooth and runny. Pour batter into a jug. Heat a 22cm nonstick pan over medium heat, brush with extra butter and pour in batter to thinly cover the pan’s base. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Flip onto a plate; repeat with remaining batter. Wipe pan; add 1/2 cup caster sugar with 2 tablespoons water. Cook, stirring, until sugar melts. Continue to cook until sugar turns a deep golden colour. Add orange juice; mix until combined. Spread crepes with curd and fold. Top with ice-cream and burnt-orange sauce.
