Garnish these delicious banana crepes with the brown sugar rum sauce and a few pecans, berries, or more slices of banana and some cinnamon sugar. The prep time is really chill time. From: Southern U.S. Cuisine
- 2 large eggs
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons rum
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 -5 bananas
- cinnamon sugar
- berries, pecans (or more)
- In a blender, blend eggs with milk.
- Add the flour, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate let stand for 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
- To cook, heat a lightly buttered 7" or 8" crepe pan.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the hot pan and swirl the pan so the batter coats the bottom of the pan.
- Cook until the edges begin to brown. Carefully lift with a thin spatula and flip over.
- Cook for a few seconds, just until lightly browned.
- Place on a plate and repeat with remaining batter.
- If you will be storing the crepes for a short time, separate the crepes with small squares of waxed paper.
- MAKE THE SAUCE:
- In a medium saucepan combine 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup, 2 tablespoons rum, 2 tablespoons butter, the heavy cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a medium saucepan.
- Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
- The mixture will foam, so be careful it doesn't boil over.
- Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
- Slice a banana; arrange half of the slices down the center of a crepe and drizzle with a little of the sauce and sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar; roll up and place on a serving plate.
- If desired, sprinkle with a few berries, extra slices of banana, or pecans.
- Drizzle the crepe with more rum sauce and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Repeat with remaining crepes and bananas.
- Makes about 8 crepes, depending on size.
YUMMY! I made another crepe recpe but used the Banana Brown Sugar Sauce for inside. I made a few changes but it still turned out great - used Dark Brown Sugar, substituted maple syrup for the corn syrup, and omitted the rum flavoring. Wonderfully sweet so a little goes a long way. Served with whipped cream on top. Thank you Annacia!
Served this last night at Dinner Club most people found it a bit to sweet for their liking.Thanks
My Dh says they deserve 10 stars. I have never made or even eaten crepes and these are so yummy and I am very happy to say for a first timer they turned out great LOL. I only got 4 but my crepe pan is a 12 inch one. DECADANT dessert. This is going in my Favorite recipes of 2009 Cookbook. I added a cinnamon whipped cream to the top. Made for Photo Tag Jan 2009
