A favorite thing to share with guests this summer at The Captains Manor Inn has been the Sweet Fruit Crepes Recipe. The dish consists of a light and airy crepe filled with a sweet cinnamon cream and topped with a fresh orange berry sauce. This is a restaurant quality dish that can easily be made in your kitchen with a few special tools. For this recipe you will need a blender and specific crepe pans for the best results. Here is how we do it !

Berry Sauce
1/4 cup Orange Marmalade
1 cup fresh berries ( raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)
