Day 47: Crepes & Fresh Berries with Rose Ganache

Crepes are an example of what wonderful things can be created from the simplest of ingredients.  These paper thin pancakes filled with fresh strawberries and creamy rose ganache are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.  They are great for dessert, for breakfast or anytime as a treat.
Note: Don't be surprised if notes by Reinhardt and Grappelli and visions of river boat rides along the Seine start to fill your head and you suddenly feel the urge to book a flight to Paris.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk
3 eggs
2 T butter, melted
1 tsp orange zest, grated
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil

1) In a bowl mix flour, milk and eggs and whisk until combined.
2) Add butter, orange zest and vanilla and mix until combined.
3) Cover bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4) Lightly oil a non-stick fry pan and heat on high.
5) Pour a small amount of batter into the fry pan to create a very thin crepe.
6) Cook both sides until golden brown.
7) Fill with rose ganache (recipe here) and fresh berries.
8) Fold or roll crepes and serve.
