Mango Crepe desserts may look fancy but they are quite easy to make.
Ripe mangoes are lightly cooked in sugar syrup, and a creamy white sauce topping is made separately.
I noticed that crepes are popular desserts nowadays, especially whenever we dine out.
They looks classy, indulgent yet I realized they are easy to prepare -- I could practically use any fruit I like, either caramelize or add them fresh, and top with commercially bought whipped cream or I make my own sauce.
Making the crepe is like making the hotcake or pancakes, though with very runny and with very thin batter.
The crepe recipe here is for sweet desserts, with added sugar for a little sweetness compared to the crepe for savory dishes like Lumpiang Ubod or Sariwa.
Other fruit fillings I suggest to use are strawberry and banana, peach and pineapple, or even the canned fruit cocktail.
