Creamy Banana Crepes Recipe

My husband and I enjoy taking turns fixing weekend breakfasts. These crepes are frequently on our menus. The sweet-and-sour banana filling is delicious. You'll want to serve them for lunch, dinner and dessert!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Cook: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • BANANA FILLING:
  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the water, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
