As we wrap up Zelda month here at Game Sandwich, we have one final treat for all our readers. Between our name and the wide range of delicious snacks in Tears of The Kingdom, we disregarded all the amazing rice dishes and were more inspired to make something more like a sweet sandwich — with a few Game Sandwich twists.
So without further ado (because everyone hates endless essays before a recipe) here is our version of the Legend of Zelda Honey Crepes.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 3 tbsp Butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/8 cup sugar
Chef’s Note: I used what I had on hand, which happened to be wheat pancake mix. So, while making the crepes, I needed a bit more water and butter to properly thin the batter. If your batter also ends up a little thick, feel free to add butter/water. Your final batter should be quite thin.
- 1/3 cup pecans
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp Honey
- Drizzle of Honey
- A dollop of whipped cream
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Use an immersion blender to make the batter as creamy-smooth as possible. You should use a spatula or spoon to stir/check the bottom to make sure all flour has been incorporated.
Set your stovetop to medium and use it to warm an eight-inch frying pan. You should lightly grease your pan with butter. Don’t get too stressed about this part, though. If you over-grease it, the only consequence is that your first crepe might be too buttery so you might have to scrap it or have a weird lil snack while you cook (I normally choose the latter).
Once your grease butter has melted, flick a bit of water in the pan. If it sizzles, you’re ready.
Spread roughly 1/4-1/3 cup of batter into the pan. Use the handle and the bend of your wrist to rotate the pan and spread the batter evenly across the bottom.
Set the pan back down on the burner. You should wait for the crepe to have bubbles in it. If you’ve made pancakes before, this part is much like waiting to flip pancakes. But as long as your heat isn’t too high, another trick is waiting for the edges of the crepe to curl up slightly off the pan. Then you should be able to take your spatula, slide it under the crepe, and flip it. If your heat is correct, your crepe should be golden brown. If it seems too light or too dark, adjust your heat.
Meanwhile, while your crepe is cooking, you can make some discount candied pecans. If you feel fancy you can make it traditionally, but I figured since we’re gamers with adventures to go on, quick candied pecans will do the trick. And they still taste pretty darn good.
To make the discount candied pecans, crush your pecans in a small microwave-safe bowl. Once they’re crushed to your preference, add the brown sugar and honey. Then, mix well. Put the bowl in the microwave and cook for 15-20 seconds. Taste and make sure you like what you have. If you need more sticky or sweet, adjust accordingly. Set aside.
Continue crepe-making until you’re out of batter. Depending on how well I do at partitioning my batter, I tend to make 10-ish crepes with this recipe.
Once your crepes are done, fold the crepe in half, then in half again to make an adorable pseudo-triangle. Then, put a spoonful (roughly a tbsp) of pecan mix in the center of the crepe. Create an arrangement of how many crepes you want to eat. I recommend 3 for a nice little treat, but if you’re going for a sweet meal, 5 might be better. Or more, I’m not the boss of you, enjoy your life how you want bestie. Then, lightly drizzle honey across your crepe arrangement and place a dollop of whipped cream on your plate for some chilled, fluffy, tasty contrast.
Finally, pick up a fork and dig in!
