Caramilzed Banana Crêpes with Nutella Sauce
Actually these crêpes are the first crêpes we were introduced to in 2002. We were on our first cruise to Mexican Riviera and hubby woke me up in the middle of the night with the beautiful platter of this crêpe! He already had his on the top deck restaurant and thought I would definitely love it so he brought me a plate. At first, I was so reluctant to have the crêpe as it was new to me and I didn't want to get up and brush my teeth again at 1 AM in the morning! Still he insisted that I should give it a try, which I am so glad I did. That was one divine dessert I had! I only made one change in this recipe. Instead of using chocolate sauce, I used Nutella. Even better!
Caramel Banana Crêpes with Nutella Sauce
For crêpes, refer to my Strawberry crêpes recipe
2 ripe bananas, sliced
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
Nutella as required
Melt butter in a skillet. Add bananas and brown sugar and cook on medium heat till bananas are caramelized and softened. Fill the crêpes with this mixture and keep warm..
Melt Nutella in the microwave and drizzle over the top of the crêpes. Garnish with sliced strawberries, whipped cream or just go crazy with whatever you have on hand!
