These crepes are the best!!! I took the advice of a few of the reviewers. I began by starting with the bananas first. I allowed them to cook while I prepared the crepes. I used a blender to make a smooth batter, and I also doubled the ingredients for the sauce. This is a definite keeper!!!Read More

My husband and I loved this recipe! I was looking for a simple but tasty crepe recipie and this is it! I've never made good crepes before, but twice in a row I've made yummy ones with this recipe. We don't actually use the banana part of it, just the crepe recipe!
My friend and I made this for dessert last night. The crepes had a slight hint of sweetness -- we loved it! Excellent crepe recipe! Didn't change a thing. Thanks! Oh, and I used a non-stick pan lightly coated with cooking spray; they came out beautifully.
Excellent crepes! The sauce was delicious but it was TOO DARN sweet and the butter kept separating from the other ingredients, made an oily mess. Might try a different sauce next time. Will keep the nutmeg.
The sauce is divine. I made this for dessert on Christmas, made the crepes and sauce ahead of time. I'd like to play with the recipe next time, I had bought some praline liqueur that I was thinking about adding to the sauce. Or hazelnut. Just fine as is. I sliced the bananas crossways instead of longways and folded the crepes into quarters. Oh, and make sure you simmer/boil the sauce for a bit (longer than I did), it definitely thickens up and gets better.
Wonderful! I made these as a treat for Father's Day and they were fantastic! I added pecan halves (along with the bananas) to the sauce and it was PERFECT!
A great crepes recipe. We use the recipe for the crepes and fill with strawberries or other fresh fruit. They are just a bit sweet, not too thin or too thick and cook so easily.
I did not have half and half, so I used half heavy cream and half 2%. I used less sugar in the sauce as some said it was too sweet. In the end I sliced the banana instead of cutting it lengthwise. It turned out quite mushy and I hated it. However, hubby loved it and he said he would give 5 stars. I didn't, but I guess this recipe should worth 4 stars. Will keep to 2 minutes cooking and cut it lengthwise next time.
These were awesome! Very Very sweet, i made them for breakfast..........not a good idea.............they would be best if eaten as a dessert
SOOO good. Mmm
Mmmmm...delicious! We didn't have any half and half or heavy cream so I used milk and cream cheese until it had a creamy consistency . I sliced up the bananas and used the topping as a filling instead and sprinkled the top with confectioners sugar and cinnamon. Not too sweet, just right!
This is the first time I have given a review and all I have to say is thank you for this recipe!! I loved it and everything came out perfect. I would not change a thing.
This was my first time making crepes. It was so easy and delicous. Everyone gave them two thumbs up
This has become my favorite breakfast! It took me some practice to get the crepes to come out looking pretty, but even when they look a mess this dish tastes like heaven!!
Perfect recipe. This turned out wonderful. I placed the six crepes on a huge platter and cheated with store-bought cream in a can. Presentation was mindblowing! I wouldn't cut the bananas into circles because I think it would be easier to roll up keeping them as halves. You want a nice bite of banana in each bite. We couldn't finish everything so I put in the fridge and just reheated one for breakfast. It was good but not like it was hot out of the pan. Next time I will experiment with already made crepes --that would be a timesaver for a dinner party. I used a 1/4 measuring cup to pour the batter into the crepe pan and it made six exactly. This fantastic and I cannot wait to make again. Thank you.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I have never made crepes but following this recipe was easy and it's delicious!!! Thanks.
This was the first crepe recipe I've tried to do from scratch. I just made the crepes part of the recipe and used other toppings of my own. The crepes were a bit sweet, so maybe next time, I will add a bit less sugar (but hahah this is sweet crepes recipe, so I guess it's a matter of taste and preference.) Also, the batter came out a little bit thicker than I would have liked, so I ended up adding a bit more milk. I think the batter is supposed to be more like the consistency of heavy cream, and adding the milk helped thin it down to the right viscosity. And finally, when I added the wet ingrediants to the dry ones, the recipe was a bit more chunky, so I spent a few more minutes breaking up the chunks than I thought I would. I would definitely reccomend mixing this one with a whisk (which I didn't have offhand.) to break up the dry bits more .
I cooked this for company one weekend we loved it, the only thing was the sauce I needed to double it. But I now have my son asking me to make it every weekend
Wow, I just paid $5 the other day for a crepe the other day in NYC, and came across this recipe. DELICIOUS! The only problem I ran into was that I only used half and half and no cream (didn't have any in the house) and the sauce didn't turn our smooth and brown, it was kind of curdled...it tasted great but looked wierd. No worries, next time I will follow the recipe. Served it w ReddiWhip and Chocolate sauce. My husband gave it 5 stars!!
This recipe was quite tasty but it was far too sweet for me. I did double the sauce recipe so that could've been the problem. Also the crepe mixture was too runny and spread too thinly.
I am only 11...and me my brother and my daddy made this recipe for my mom for mother's day! She didn't expect it to turn out that good! She make basic crepes very well and she has a very good recipe but she loved these! My whole family love it but we used a slight larger skillet ( 1/2) inches so we didn't use all of the bananas! Also I printed out this recipe in Word and the first number got cut off and we were supposed to use 2/3 cup of flower and we used 3 ! We made dough! Out of the dough we made cookies and then made the recipe again! It was YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY and even my classy family absolutely lovved it!
Excellent! It was delicious! I wish that I could make/eat this everyday, but it's very sugary and butter but oh-so-good!
Made the banana filling (cut into discs) with a different crepe recipe I already love. Very good, tasted like applesauce, only made with bananas! Instead of the half and half I used evaporated milk (to reduce the fat content) with good results. May try making it with half the butter recommended next time to reduce fat further. Instead of whipped cream I topped the crepe with powdered sugar.
I used the banana sauce along wit the 'dessert crepes' recipe. Delicious. I used evaporated milk since I didn't have any cream. I would use a little less butter next time though, the sauce was hardly sticky
I loved these. I wasn't able to use all my bananas though. There wasn't enough sauce to spoon over them. I will double the sauce next time. The crepes were good enough to eat by themselves. Will definately keep this recipe!!
This is a fantastic recipe! The crepes come out perfect. I've used several types of fruit (drizzled with honey) for the filling and also one of the homemade whipped topping recipes from this site. Always a HUGE hit! Try this for presentation: Place about 1 Tbls of the cinnamon caramel sauce on the place, then place the crepe flat while it's still hot, add about 2 Tlbs of fruit filling, another Tbls of whipped cream. Fold in two sides of the crepe and place an uncut strawberry or banana slice on top. Drizzle with more caramel sauce and serve. You're guests will love it.
I am rating this recipe, simply on the ingredients used to make the crepes, minus the banana part. I haven't tried the bananas with the crepes, but I enjoy using the basic recipe for the crepes, because it is wonderful. I really like the addition of powered sugar, rather then white sugar. My dad made wonderful crepes and this recipe has allowed me to make them, just like him, w/o fail! I was asked to make crepes for Mother's Day Brunch for 15 people. They turned out perfect! I was even able to flip them in the pan w/o a spatula! We used different variations of things for the fillings (i.e., strawberries & whip cream, nutella hazelnut spread with bananas, brown sugar, maple syrup, sunflower butter and hazelnut spread, plum sauce/jelly) Thank you, Thank you!
Since other reviewers said this was very sweet, I made the crepes with just 1.5 tablespoons of white sugar, no vanilla (because I was out). They were perfection! I also used fat free milk for the banana filling, slicing the bananas into discs and cooking to the texture I wanted them after the sauce thickened. So delicious! My husband even scarfed them down, and he's very picky!
delicious! If you can find premade crepes this recipe is very easy and quick to make! The banana is good, but I think next time I will try broiling the bananas with a bit of honey or sugar first before putting in the crepe.
Very nice recipe. I made these as the finale of a fairly fancy dinner for a large group. I made the crepes in the morning and layered them between wax paper and also made the sauce earlier in the day. When it was time for desert, I just heated the sauce, threw in the bananas, and while they were cooking, I drizzled chocolate syrup on the dessert plates, rolled the banana up in the crepe, and topped with the whipped cream and sauce and a strawberry and mint leaf on the side. It was absolutely beautiful, and a hit in every way.
Really yummy! I laugh when I see the prep time though. This recipe takes about 45 minutes to prepare and cook. I also felt as though there was not enough sauce. I only used two bananas (only two of us were eating), and we had just enough.
Excellent, but the adults liked it more than the kids. Rating based on recipe as written.
This was wonderful! Next time I will make more sause though, and try it with strawberrys.
This is delicious!
This was my first attempt at crepes, and they turned out pretty good. I only used 2 bananas cut in half and then split lengthwise. I felt the sauce could have been doubled...it only made enough to coat the bananas... and there wasn't a lot left over to spoon on top of the crepes. If I make these again, I'll double the brown sugar sauce and may decrease the butter a bit. But overall, I enjoyed these. Thanks Jessica.
I made these this morning. I didn't make the banana part but the crepe was simple, delicious and came out beautiful. Thanks for the recipe!!! Will definitley be making this again and again.
I found this very tasty and very easy to make. Definitely not for breakfast though! I made that mistake, and it was simply just too sweet. This would be incredibly for dessert.
Very good and easy to make!!! SO filling!!!
Yummy Yummy! These were absolutley delicious! I will definatley make them again. It was a very easy recipe...just followed it exactly and there ya go! Homemade banana crepes. Five Stars!
I am rating the banana filling only here. It was fantastic! Very easy and quick to make. However, I made the sauce as directed per measurements, I did use milk instead of 1/2 1/2, and I only used one banana sliced in thin rounds. There was plenty of sauce and I wonder if using 6 banana's would there be enough sauce? Eitherway, fantastic and will be making this again.
This was my first time making crepes. They were easy to make and very delicious. I followed my friend's suggestion and used 1/2 seltzer water and 1/2 heavy cream. I added Grand Marnier to the sauce because I wanted it to be special. I also added Nutella before placing the bananas inside. (Cooked on med low heat and kept it on warm while made the crepes). I decorated each crepe with a tablespoon of homemade whipped cream, a mint leaf, and 3 raspberries. Everyone loved it. I will try to decrease the amount of butter and sugar next time.
Yummmm. Just used the crepe recipe and filled it with a thin layer of chocolate sauce, fresh sweet pineapples and whipped cream. Hit the spot. Keeper.
I loved this, but would only make it for a special occasion. I didn't have leftover sauce so ended up making a little more to put on top.
great, as far as the crepe itself goes. I did not make this sauce as I had a craving for chocolate and spread and drizzled Hershey's hot fudge over the whole thing, and crumbled a wheatmeal digestive biscuit over it. The sauce, however, does sound good and I will be trying it. But this crepe recipe beats the one I was using before, so 5 stars!
This a fabulous recipe. I haven't made it for several years, but used to make it often. Finding it here has renewed my interest in it...banana crepes, here I come!
I've made this recipes a few times and everyone loves it!! It turns out perfect for four when I double the sauce recipe and half the crepe recipe. I highly recommend this recipe for anyone who is trying to impress someone!
Incredible! The crepe recipe was indeed a little on the greasy side so next time I will use less butter. For the sauce I used whole milk instead of 1/2 & 1/2 and honey instead of sugar and it turned out divine! My husband said they were the best crepes he's ever had!
These were sooooo good. Like many people said, these are very rich. I still served them for my guests for breakfast and they all loved them. I had to double the sauce ingredients though because I didn't have enough to cover all the bananas.
Was very easy and kids loved it.Thanks so much!!1
these crepes are the best! i tried another recipe on this site for comparison, but this one is much easier and produces beautiful and tasty crepes.
This tasted just like the banana fosters dessert that I so love at the Melting Pot. I did double the sauce like suggested in other reviews. It was so that even my picky daughter said "Oh my gosh, this is soooo good!"
Delicious, it was like a banana foster DREAM!!!
Made this for the family for breakfast this morning! Recipe is easy and tastes great! The only thing I will do differentl next time is that I will make the crepes first and put them in a warm oven to stay warm so I am not trying to make the filling at the same time! But thank you so much for sharing!
This was the first time I made crepes before and they turned out really good! I halved the recipe and it still worked out well and got good practice at flipping the crepes over in the air!
Very good, I have no idea what some of the cooks did that are complaining about bad separation. It also was not too sweet, But really to each their own in that department.
LOVED this recipe!! My first time making crepes and it was a big hit at my house. thank you for posting!!
I didn't use the filling in this recipe. I just wanted the crepe part, which turned out great.
These where Divine like another viewer said! I followed others suggestions and made the sauce first... Defiantly a keeper
Very good but VERY sweet! I made them for a sunday morning breakfast, it is more a dessert crepe.
I made the vegan crepes also on this website and just used this recipe for the topping. Instead of butter and cream, I used vegan margerine and soymilk (thickened a bit with some flour). What a meal!!! It turned out deliciously! I only had two bananas, so I sliced them into disks rather than slicing lengthwise. This will become a saturday special around our house!
This would be 5 stars, except I can't get my sauce to thicken.....great taste though. I don't add the bananas to the sauce. I put the banana in the crepe and drizzle sauce over....but want it thicker. Mine never thickens much at all. Any tips? Crepes are easy and taste great. Just need some help with the sauce.
very mediocre. Nothing bad about it, but nothing really fabulous either
I gave this four stars only because it took much longer to prepare than the recipe indicated. The bananas need to cook in the sauce for about 10 minutes before they taste their best. Also, I would prepare the crepe mixture first, as the recipe indicates, but I would not begin making each crepe until the bananas are cooking. This is a dish that needs to be served as soon as it is made, while the crepe and the filling are still hot. Fantastic flavors!!
these came out delicious for me.the badder was great also.will make again
Since discovering this my waist line is in serious trouble! Used store bought crepes because I didn't have the time and patience to do fresh ones. Worked perfectly. Topped off with vanilla ice cream as if it wasn't sweet enough already! (latest pic) lol. Great dessert. I've made it twice now.
This was my first time making crepes, so probably my technique wasn't right... my crepes were slightly thick and slimy. The flavor of these was great, but I wasn't digging the hot banana mush too much. Guess this one just wasn't for me!
Overall, good recipe that I enjoyed. However, mixed reviews from the family. My daughter loved it and my son hated it. This had a unique taste with the mix of cinnamon and bananas. But, after trying it once, you may decide to spend the time and your desert calories on more traditional dishes in the future. For me, I think I will fill these wonderful crepes with berries and cream next time.
I give this four stars only because I didn't try the banana/carmel topping so I don't feel I can give the whole recipe 5. But the crepes themselves definitely deserve 5 stars! They were so yummy! I filled them with jam and whipped cream and they were delicious!!! Great crepe recipe!!
It tasted really good, but the sauce never thickened up for me. I will try it again.
I love it.
I made the crepes too thick....I didn't smear around the batter so it puffed up like a flat pancake. IT was very good other than that, but that was my fault. The filling was dilicious!
We've been using this recipe for years now. It is a wonderful way to use up a few bananas that are getting too ripe. We also serve this crepe recipe with fresh strawberries (though we don't cook those).
delicious and easy!
I just have to say I'm not much of a cook but I made this for Valentine's breakfast and I (along with my Fiance) were surprised at how well it came out. It was absolutely delicious - not too sweet and the flavors of the vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar went so well together! Definitely saving this for future breakfasts!
This was awesome! The family loved it, my husband even licked his plate! I did add fresh blueberries to the sauce as it cooked then spread it over the banana's in the crepe. It was so good. I think I'm going to add a little OJ next time to give it a slight tangy taste to cut the sweetness. This one is definately a keeper.
This version of crepes is excellent,I made them part as brunch along with french toast on the side and I have to say this recipe is worth keeping and making again!!
Amazing. I would make this for a dessert, too, with a little bit of brandy or rum.
Great recipe! I could not do the banana sauce, but instead I just put redi whip and syrup on it. To tell you the truth, it tasted like caramel and was just wonderful. Huge hit with my 15 month old son and husband. Wil make again, and next time with the banana sauce. :)
Way to sweet!
awesome! Cooked sauce with bananas on low heat while making crepes.
This is the best recipe I have gotten off this website yet! I just made them for my family, and everyone was practically licking their plates! The recipe was seemigly easy since I am a crepe rookie. One tip, DO NOT USE PAM or any other cooking spray, your crepes will not turn out. I learned this early on in the recipe. Use little butter if any to use the crepes and roll the pan, they arent supposed to be like a pancake like my 1st ones were turning out to be. Supposed to be real thin, paper like. Also, I would somehow find out how to make more of the syrup the bananas are cooked in, this was amazing. Maybe double the amount of half and half? It would thicken up in no time. I will cut the bananas in halves then in pieces next time, so you didnt have a real long banana in your crepe. Good luck, you gotta try this, i told my husband i will cook this on Christmas Morning from now on. What a tradition!
Yummy and really easy made a perfect Christmas morning breakfast.
These crepes were better than I ever expected. only made the crepes - did not make the banana filling/sauce. almost too easy for how good they were. will make again (and again) with different fillings.
Awesome!! Although my kitchen looked like a tornado hit it afterwards...the end result was wonderful..very tasty.
This was a really good recipe. I had some problems with it though that maybe someone can help me with. I halved the recipe and made it verbatem. I added 2 of the bananas to the sauce and it worked, but after I removed those bananas, the sugar separated from the butter and I couldn't salvage it. So only 2 crepes worked. They were awesome, but a lot of work for 2 crepes. Does anyone that has made this before know what I did wrong? I would love to make them again because they were so good but I don't want the same thing to happened.
I had one of my sixth-grade students help me with this the first time I made it. It turned out beautifully! The next time I made it, I had an eight-year old help me and it was even better! GREAT recipe and really easy to do!
Yummy! I used a differenet crepe recipe, but I made this banana filling! I halved the recipe and used just one banana sliced into many pieces. After the bananas were eaten up (quickly), I used the remaining sauce in the pan and a little more half and half to cook up another sliced banana. Everyone loved them!
We had this as dessert and was wonderful. I made the crepe batter first then got the sauce cooking before starting the crepes. I follow the directions otherwise. The sauce was wonderful but a little rich so next time I'm going to try half and half instead of the cream and see if that suits us better. Otherwise, yummy.
I followed the recipe pretty closely and the crepes turned out lumpy and rubbery...
This recipe was simple to make, with a very decadent outcome! It was absolutely delicious! My wife loved it! I can't wait to show off, and make it for guest's! Thank you Jessica this is definately a keeper.
This was pretty good. I too cut the banana into slices and used my own crepe recipe. I found the sauce a little bit too sweet, so next time I'll cut down on the sugar a bit since the bananas lend sugar of their own to the sauce. I did like the flavor the spices gave to the recipe. Definitely a pleasant way to begin the day.
My boyfriend made these and they came out perfect!!! They are very rich & having more then one feels like a sin. I just wish they had explained the method for pouring the crepes into the skillet. Enjoy!!!
This was pretty good. I think you could add a little sugar and a lot of powdered sugar to the top and it will be a lot better. Also if you have ever heard of froxen custard get some with this meal.
Great recipie. I found it a little too sweet though - cutting down on the sugar really helps.
This filling was really good!
Delicious crepes! I first saw this recipe in TOH cookbook called "french banana pancakes". I have looked at this recipe numerous times saying "mmm Ive gotta make it". I finally did! It was quite a sweet crepe and for me I think it would be a great dessert. I made them for breakfast and they was a little too sweet for me that early in the morning. I made half the recipe since it was plenty. The crepes in this are amazing! They were so good I kept eating them plain while I was making them. Great recipe. Next time I may add in some toasted walnuts and fill the crepes with a cream cheese filling along with the sauce.
Overall, I personally found this recipe to be more trouble than it was worth. If I did it a second time, even though it would be even more work, I would cream the banana mixture. The solid banana just seems to be too heavy for what is supposed to be a very light dish. I won't be making it again, but if you love crepes and bananas and don't mind a little work, you'd probably like this dish.
Made this exactly as posted & was wonderful!
This recipe was easy to make and delicious. I have never made crepes before and was delighted when this recipe turned out so well.
