J'Adore Crepes

I adore crepes. I love crepes. I wish I could click my heels or wiggle my nose and magically appear in Paris. I found this recipe in my latest issue of Martha Stewat living, and thought...ohhh, that sounds AMAZING!

Bananas Foster Crepes

Serves 4
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 4 small basic crepes
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche or vanilla ice cream


  1. Warm butter and sugar in a saute pan over medium heat until butter melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Add bananas, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and vanilla, and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add rum. Return to heat. If using a gas stove, tip pan away from you carefully until the vapors from the rum ignite. (Or light with a long match.) Cook until flames stop, about 1 minute. Divide bananas among crepes; reserve sauce in pan.
  2. Fold each crepe in half, then fold in half again. Drizzle crepes with reserved sauce, and top with creme fraiche or ice cream. Serve immediately.

I spent a summer in northern France several years ago, where they are especially known for their crepes. Guess if I gained weight? Like, a lot... But nothing has ever been more worth it.
