Fresh and Fruity Light Dessert
Blend the milk, eggs, oil, sugar, salt, and orange zest together in a large bowl. Add the flour and whisk until evenly blended. Strain the batter through a fine mesh sieve to remove any clumps and return to bowl. Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes.
In a small non-stick pan, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Pour appoximately one ounce of the batter into the pan. Quickly, swirl the batter around the pan to ensure that it is evenly distributed and coats the entire bottom of the pan. Let the batter cook until it has puffed slightly and has turned a golden color, 30 seconds to 1 minute, flip, and then cook another 10-20 seconds. Repeat until you have used the entire batter. Once cooked, set aside.
Heat the butter and sugar together in a heavy bottom pan on medium-high heat until thick and syrupy. Add the Grand Mariner and orange juice, and heat thoroughly.
Take each finished crÃªpe and fold into a triangle shape by folding each in half and half again. Place two to three folded crepes into a frying pan on high heat with the remaining .5 tablespoon of butter. Heat, then pour 4-5 ounces of the Suzette sauce onto the crÃªpes. Transfer the warm crepes and sauce into a serving dish and serve with vanilla ice cream.
