Crepe Suzette: An authentic French Dessert Recipe

An authentic French Dessert, this is in simple lay out “crepes with orange liquor”. And before going into the ingredients, a little introduction we think won’t really hamper the jazz of cooking this delightful Dessert. A typical French dessert that was created in the late 19th century in a restaurant named Monte Carlo, this like brownie is an accidental invention- the cook accidentaly set fire on a pancake that was flavored with cognac! Since then, this has been the Prima Donna of our very own, tastebud opera!
