Steps to Make It

Make the Crepes

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a blender, blend eggs with milk.

  3. Add the flour, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Blend until smooth.

  4. Pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate let stand for 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 12 hours.

  5. To cook, heat a lightly buttered 7-inch or 8-inch crepe pan.

  6. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the hot pan and swirl the pan so the batter coats the bottom of the pan.

  7. Cook until the edges begin to brown.

  8. Carefully lift with a thin spatula and flip over. Cook for a few seconds, just until lightly browned.

  9. Place on a plate and repeat with remaining batter.

Make the Sauce

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, dark corn syrup, rum, butter, the heavy cream, and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
