  2. Place a non-stick pan on a moderate heat and add a tsp of butter, pour a ladle of batter into the pan and cook the crepes on both sides until golden. Repeat this process until all the batter is finished you will need to have 10 crepes to make the stack.
  3. Once the crepes are cool and the curd is set, take a spatula and spread the curd evenly across the crepes. Repeat the process 9 times by leaving 1 crepe for the top, now place in the fridge to set over night. Portion the crepes and serve with confit Orange.
