The woman behind my favorite cupcake in town shares a recipe with us just in time for Valentine’s Day. Banana crepes courtesy of Wendy Thompson, A Cookie and a Cupcake. You just know these are going to be good!
- 6.5 oz milk
- 2 oz heavy cream
- 2 oz sugar
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1.5 egg
- 1/4 vanilla bean
- pinch salt
** Blend together and strain through a sieve
- 1 oz yellow corn meal
- 1.75 oz graham cracker crumbs
** add to strained mixture and mix by hand
Heat an 8-inch nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Lightly brush the pan with melted butter. Pour batter into the hot pan, twirling the pan so the batter spreads out evenly into a very thin layer. Cook about 30 seconds until the crepe comes away from the sides of the pan. Gently flip the crepe over with your fingers or the help of a rubber spatula and continue cooking another few seconds. Transfer to a plate and repeat cooking crepes until all the batter is used
- 8 oz sliced ripe banana
- 2/3 oz light brown sugar
- 1/4 oz butter
- pinch cinnamon
Heat sauté pan; add butter and brown sugar. When melted add bananas and cinnamon, cook for a couple minutes.
Lay flat one crepe, add a little vanilla pudding, caramelized bananas and roll up. Serve with some chocolate sauce, crushed nougat and some whip cream and enjoy!
