Banoffee Crêpes (Banana Toffee Crêpes)

banoffee crepes recipe

First thing first, I am a huge fan of banana-toffee combo.

I am glad to have this fact off my shoulders now. 🙂

With a severe craving for the aforementioned divine combination a few days ago, I thought it could be really fun to try merge bananas and toffee with crepes. And the result? Delicious, gorgeous, wonderful. The winner! 100% paradise heaven. You definitely need to try this!

Here’s how it all can be made…

To make the batter, place the flour, milk, water, sugar, egg and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined and smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the crêpe batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup (60 ml) for each crêpe.

To make the toffee sauce, place the butter, sugar and milk into a pan over low heat, stirring until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.

Slowly bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until the mixture thickens. Then remove from the heat and allow it to cool slightly. Your sauce will become much thicker as it cools so you will need to serve it while still quite warm.

To make the whipped cream, just combine the heavy whipping cream and sugar and whip until firm.

The fun thing with crêpes is that they can be folded in many ways. I decided to go for two versions, a triangle one and the one where the crêpe is simple folded in half.

To make the triangle fold, I first placed banana slices and toffee sauce on one half of the crêpe.
