Orange sauce for crepes

About this recipe: Crêpes Suzette is a classic dish, and this is my easy version of the orange sauce. This orange sauce is so delectable, and I personally love the bit of texture that the marmalade adds. Serve the sauce with warm crepes and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This sauce is also lovely on ice cream by itself.

Serves: 4 

  • 500ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the orange juice, sugar, marmalade and butter. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, or until sauce reduces by half. Do not vigorously boil the sauce, just leave it at a rolling simmer and be a little patient!
  2. When the sauce has reduced, stir in the Grand Marnier. Simmer for 1 minute more. Remove from heat and serve straightaway, spooned over crepes.

had a really lovely taste - I didnt use freshly squeezed orange juice but a good quality carton juice instead. It was a bit runny but thickened up as it cooled a bit. - 12 Mar 2011
