Cooking with Corazon: Episode XXV

Banana Crepes w/
Caramel Sauce

In today's installment in my quest for culinary excellence I chose to take on one of my all-time favorite desserts: CREPES! Take a look:

As you can see, the main ingredient for my crepes was bananas. Usually people like to have raspberry, strawberry or some other berry with their crepes, which is why I thought this would be a little different. Here is the recipe:

-1 cup flour
-3 bananas (peeled, cut in half, and then cut down the middle lengthwise)
-1 container whipped topping
-1/4 cup powdered sugar
-2 eggs
-1 cup milk
-2 Tbs. butter (melted)
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1/4 tsp. salt
-Some Nuttella

And for the caramel drizzle:
-1/4 cup butter
-1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
-1/4 cup milk
-1/4 tsp. cinnamon
-1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1.) Mix flour, powdered sugar in mixing bowl. Add eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla, salt and mix until smooth.
2.) Heat a small pan with the 1/4 cup butter, brown sugar, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix together and allow to simmer until it forms into a melted caramel-like state.
3.) On a skillet, add 1/3 cup of the batter. Spread the batter to make it as thin as possible on the skillet by tilting it in a circular fashion. Cook until browned and repeat on the other side.
4.) Remove the crepe and add the 1/2 banana and a dollop of whipped topping. Spread some nuttella over crepe to desired amount. Roll crepe around banana and whipped topping. Drizzle the hot caramel sauce on the top of the crepe.
5.) SCARF!!!

Pretty easy, fun and delicious little dessert!

Buen Provecho!
