Banana Crepes Recipe

I like to griddle up a big batch of my fruit-filled crepes for parties. The fresh citrus flavor really brightens them up. —Freda Becker, Garrettsville, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 6 medium firm bananas, peeled and sliced
  • Fresh raspberries, optional


  • 1. In a bowl, whisk together first six ingredients; let stand 20 minutes.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat. Fill a 1/4-cup measure halfway with batter; pour into center of pan. Quickly lift, tilt and rotate pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook crepe until top appears dry; turn over and cook until bottom is cooked, 15-20 seconds. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing pan as needed.
  • 3. For sauce, place butter, sugar, orange peel and orange juice in a large skillet; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium; add bananas to warm.
  • 4. To serve, spoon bananas onto crepes; fold into quarters. Top with remaining sauce and, if desired, raspberries. Yield: 12 crepes.

Recipe Note

Health Tip: Try these crepes with more wholesome filling: sliced bananas, strawberries, Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of granola for crunch.
