This is not my original recipe, when I was making this many moons ago I had no idea what a magroot/wild lime was, so cheers to Thai cuisine for this wonderful addition to the culinary arsenal.


  • 6 passion fruits - about 1/2 lb
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp Key lime juice
  • 2 wild lime leaves, fine chiffonade
  • 2 oz unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 2 TB water


  • Make crêpes and set aside.
  • Remove pulp from passion fruits and place in a food processor, pulse a few times to remove the pulp and juice from the seeds.
  • Strain juice, reserve seeds for possible garnish if you wish.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan, add sugar, passion fruit pulp, lime leaves, water and key lime juice.
  • Cook, stirring until sugar melts completely.
  • Bring mixture to a boil for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, fold crêpes into quarters and arrange in a chaffing dish.
  • Once syrup has boiled for 3 minutes, carefully add rum, stir to combine, try to not let it catch fire yet, but bring it back to a simmer.
  • If your chaffing dish has a heat source underneath, ignite it now.
  • Carefully pour the passion/rum sauce over the crêpes, let the mixture simmer again, then ignite as for crêpe suzette.
  • Let the flame die on it's own, then kill the heat source underneath the chaffing dish.
  • Serve while warm with creme chantilly and a sprinkling of passion fruit seeds.
  • Alternately, you can skip the rum step, and arrange crêpes in a shallow oven proof dish, pour sauce over crêpes and broil for 4-5 minutes before serving.
