- 6 tablespoons orange marmalade, divided
- 1 tablespoon sugar

I'd recommend making the crepe batter in a blender if that's available for a smoother consistency. My daughter really liked the filling on these, and I strongly recommend eating these with the sour cream topping (even if you don't generally like sour cream).
