Mango Crepe on a Hot Day!

Ok, this has nothing to do with faux cupcakes!

It's just soooo hot today (summer here already!) that I thought I'd make myself a mango crepe to cool me down. This is a super simple and yummy dessert...perfect for hot sunny days! :)

Super Easy Mango Crepe

you will need:

-hotcake mix, your preferred brand (I use Pillsbury)
-water or fresh milk
-sweet ripe mango slices
-vanilla ice cream
-chocolate syrup
-optional: whipped cream, chopped nuts, strawberry syrup (too bad I don't have any of these at this time)


1. Mix the hotcake mix according to it's package. Thin the hotcake batter with water or milk (I use milk), until it is not thick anymore.

2. Cook your hotcake/crepe on a pan or skillet on a low heat. I use the smoother side of a stove top grill to cook my crepes. You may use the back of a spoon to spread the batter thinly, and a long spatula to flip it over and cook the other side. Do not over cook!

3. Let your crepes cool.

4. Once cooled lay it on a plate. Then you may add scoops of vanilla ice cream and slices of mangoes. If you have whipped cream (which I don't have at this time), you may add some as well!

5. Drizzle chocolate syrup.

6. Fold your crepe. Drizzle with more chocolate syrup. Add more slices of mangoes....then voila! You've got a yummy dessert which will be gone in 60 seconds! LOL!

Oh, yeah, you may also drizzle some strawberry syrup and sprinkle some chopped nuts if you have any available. But it's still fine without them! YUM!

And yes, you may substitute other fruits if mangoes are hard to acquire in your part of the world. Strawberries and peaches are great alternatives, too...of course it won't be called mango crepes anymore! LOL!
