Instructions

  1. Mix one tablespoon of orange blossom honey and orange zest with cheese. Set aside.
  2. Add remaining honey, sugar cane syrup, vanilla, and brown sugar to a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Let boil for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer until ready to use.
  3. To make the crepes, melt 2 tablespoons butter and set aside. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. Beat eggs and milk together then add melted butter. Combine egg mixture with dry ingredients.
