Sugar High Friday #43 - Citrus: Orange Crêpes with Lemon Sorbet

When I saw the theme of this month's SHF hosted by Tartelette, I was delighted! I adore lemons, so I was sure I am going to make something using them. I was thinking days about what I should do and I just had no inspiration...until today! As one of my favourite ice cream is lemon, I thought why not make my own lemon sorbet. Each time I buy ice cream on the street I check how the lemon tastes, if it is yummy I buy other flavours, so that is the ultimate ice cream test for me. If lemon is good, the rest should rock as well. On the other hand side I thought only a sorbet is not enough, so that is how I ended up preparing orange crêpes. To give the missing kick to the whole dessert, I took some tablespoon of the grapefruit jam, that I cooked recently, added some orange juice and lemon pepper to have a sauce going with the rest. While taking photos I remembered my orange pastry I made a day before yesterday and decorated the whole thing with it. That is how I managed to use more than one citrus for this great theme!

For the Crêpes:
2 eggs
2 tablespoon flour

2 tablespoon powder sugar
4 tablespoon milk

zest and juice of 1 orange
For the lemon sorbet:
275 ml milk
275 g sugar

zest and juice of 3 lemons
1 egg white

For the crêpe whisk all ingredients together and put aside for about 30 minutes.
Bake them in buttered saucepan.
For the sorbet cook milk with sugar and let it cool. Add zest and juice of the lemon and whipped egg white. Let the ice cream machine do the rest.
