Banana Crepes

I like to serve this impressive treat at parties. The pleasant banana-orange flavor makes it wonderful for dinner or brunch. —Freda Becker, Garrettsville, Ohio
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 10 min.
  • Makes
    12 crepes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 6 medium firm bananas, peeled and sliced
  • Fresh raspberries, optional

Directions

  • In a bowl, whisk together first 6 ingredients; let stand 20 minutes.
  • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat. Fill a 1/4-cup measure halfway with batter; pour into center of pan. Quickly lift, tilt and rotate pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook crepe until top appears dry; turn over and cook until bottom is cooked, 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing pan as needed.
  • For filling, place butter, sugar, orange zest and orange juice in a large skillet; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium; add bananas to warm.
  • To serve, spoon bananas onto crepes; fold into quarters. Top with remaining filling and, if desired, raspberries.
Health Tip: Try these crepes with more wholesome filling: sliced bananas, strawberries, Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of granola for crunch.
