Decadent Delectables: Banana Custard Crepes

I made crepes for the first time yesterday! (Crepe Recipe) And mmmm, yummy ... they were so good warm out of the pan with melted butter and sugar. Since I had so many more than I could eat in one sitting, or would be prudent to do so at least, I refrigerated the leftovers and had a "light bulb moment" this morning ...

I had bananas and I made some homemade custard last night (Custard Recipe), so I created a delectable dessert, which I had for breakfast!! Voila, Banana Custard Crepes. Of course, you can use packaged vanilla pudding or custard as well.

UPDATE: I like this Vanilla Pudding Recipe better ... EXCEPTION: add 2 egg yolks ... stir in warm milk very slowly ... you don't want to cook the egg; then pour back into sauce pan and heat until thickened. This is a little sweeter than the custard recipe, so adjust sugar to your desire.


Use fresh out of the pan or off the griddle crepes or microwave a refrigerated crepe for 15 seconds. They can be served cold, but I like warming them up first.


Place a couple tablespoons of custard in a line near edge of crepe.


Place slices of banana on top of custard.


Drizzle a light line of chocolate syrup on top of bananas.


Roll the custard, banana, and chocolate in the crepe. Drizzle chocolate syrup for a beautiful presentation.


Serve one, two, or three! ;->
Yummy!

Great for entertaining as everything can be prepared in advance. They could even be set up as a self-serve buffet with a variety of fruit since vanilla custard is versatile. Experiment. Have fun.

Thanks for visiting.
Have a great crepe day, my friends.
