How do I cook crepes with summer berries on the Weber GBS Griddle?
End your BBQ with this quick, easy summer dessert
We don’t usually associate barbecues with desserts but there is no reason not to include a few in your repertoire and this crepe dish is really quick and simple. Top UK BBQ chef, Richard Holden and Ian Hodgett from The Barbecue Shop here in store show just how easy it is to finish your BBQ with a delicious summer dessert. It doesn’t just have to be for summer either, just substitute the berries for spiced apple or pears poached in mulled wine.
You just need a griddle on your BBQ, the one we have used is part of the Weber GBS (Gourmet Barbecue System), but griddles are available to fit most types of barbecue. Make sure the griddle is cleaned of any burned particles.
- 325ml milk
- 150g plain flour
- 30g melted butter; plus more for cooking
- 1 large egg
Combine all the batter ingredients and leave in the fridge overnight.
- summer berries
- maple syrup
- icing sugar
- grated dark chocolate
- few sprigs mint
Let the BBQ griddle plate come up to temperature; we have put all three burners on a quarter heat directly below the griddle.
Melt a little butter on the griddle and pour on a small amount of batter until it forms a thin crepe. The first crepe may turn out to be a tester if the griddle is either too hot or cool. Give the crepe a minute or so until the bottom is golden brown then turn over and cook the second side. Make a stack of about 6 crepes, pour some maple syrup over the top, add the berries, a dusting of icing sugar, a sprinkle of grated chocolate and finally garnish with a couple of sprigs of mint.
