Banana Chocolate Crepe


Banana Chocolate Crepe01

When I spotted this crepe maker was on sale at Aldi, it quickly became one of my kitchen gadget collections. Hadn’t hubby encouraged, I would’ve taken one or two more days to consider. You might easily guess who is the person in my family loves to have crepes the most? Back home, off I went to whip up one of his most favourite versions, banana chocolate crepe, which costs 9 dollars each from a dessert bar. With this crepe maker, I can easily make as many good-looking crepes, just like those professional ones, as we like. If you don’t have a crepe maker, you still can make tasty crepe with a non-stick pan.

Banana Chocolate Crepe Procedures

Method:
  • Mix the eggs, butter, milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Sift in plain flour and cornflour. Combine well. Set aside.
  • Put chocolate, sugar and cream in a bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water, at low heat. Stir occasionally until the chocolate and sugar are completely dissolved. Remove from the heat.
  • Heat up the crepe maker according to the manufacturer’s manual or a non-stick frying pan. Lightly grease the crepe maker or frying pan. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter for each crepe and cook both sides until lightly brown. Place banana slices and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Fold into a triangle shape. Drizzle more chocolate sauce on top. Served immediately with ice cream or whipped cream if you like. Enjoy!

Notes:
  • If using frying pan, simply pour the batter, then swirl the frying pan so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
