If you have been following my old posts, you must have realized my obsession with crepes...be it savory or sweet. Crepes are very quick and easy to prepare as it does not need any time for fermentation, or time for rising. They are just prepared instantly with ingredients always found at home at any time of the day. I have tried savory crepes with spicy stuffing both vegetarian and non-vegetarian version. You can check out the most popular post on my blog called Peri Peri Chicken Crepes and Vegetable & Cheese Crepes.

I am sure these crepes will remind you of the ones which are served at Haggen Dazs. And this is how I got inspired to prepare them at home. Whenever I have something delicious at any eat outs, I start dreaming of recreating it... so that I do not have to crave for it and wait for my turn to go there and have it again. Many such recipes on my blog are inspired by such tasty restaurant food. One such favorite blog post which was recreated at home was Dynamite Shrimps.

When I had posted the video for Vegetable & Cheese Crepes I got many requests from my readers to share the recipe for eggless crepes, so this time I have included the shot in my video to show how to make crepes without eggs. But let me tell you that crepes with egg taste much better than the eggless version and also it becomes a bit difficult to handle the eggless ones as they are very delicate and can tear easily while cooking. And now you can make your own caramel sauce at home and avoid those store bought ones which are full of artificial flavors and additives.

Banana & Caramel Crepes ~ Sweet Crepes with Banana & Caramel Sauce


Classic sweet crepes served with banana, berries or fruits of your choice along with chilled ice cream and drizzled with hot caramel sauce. This makes it ideal to be served as a dessert or as breakfast if served without ice cream.


Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 + 5 minutes per crepe
Total time: 45 Mins
1 cup = 250 ml capacity
Yields 6-7 crepes

Ingredients:


For caramel sauce
1 cup white sugar
6 tablespoon unsalted butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup heavy cream (120 ml)
1/2 teaspoon salt

For Sweet Crepes (Blend together to a smooth batter)
2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1 egg
2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup plain flour (Maida)

For Egg less sweet crepes (Blend together to a smooth batter)
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain flour (Maida)

Other Ingredients
2 or 3 bananas as required
Chocolate sauce (optional)
Ice cream of your choice
Berries or fruits of your choice (optional)

Instructions:


1. For Caramel Sauce - Heat 1 cup white sugar in a heavy bottom pan on slow flame. Keep stirring and after 5 minutes the sugar will start crystallizing. Keep stirring for 2 more minutes till it starts to become watery. Continue stirring till the color changes to a light golden color and the sugar is now in a clear liquid form. This whole procedure will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Now add soft butter and stir well until the butter melts and is well combined with the sugar. Finally, add salt and heavy cream and stir for a couple of minutes till the sauce thickens and runs smooth. Do not try to taste while cooking as the caramel sauce is much hotter.
2. For crepes - Pour a ladle full (2 or 3 tbsp) of batter into the pan and slowly rotate the pan in such a way that batter spreads evenly over the pan making thin crepes. Cook for 1 minute and flip over the crepe and again cook for 30 seconds on the other side. Remove on a plate and cool before adding the stuffing.
3. Take a crepe and place thin banana slices on the half part of the crepe. Drizzle with caramel sauce and cover with the other part making a half moon. Fold it further into a triangle. Serve with a scoop of ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and some more fruits.

  1. Saw the video - I liked the way you made the batter in the blender. I always hand whisk and sometimes end up with a couple of lumps.
    I am heading over to your savory crepes recipes:)
