BANANAS FOSTER CREPES

BANANAS FOSTER CREPES

Traditionally the classic Bananas Foster recipe is from New Orleans and some of the main ingredients are ripe sliced bananas, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and rum. With these ingredients, you can make lovely caramelized bananas to add on top of pancakes, or in this recipe on top of vegan crepes. Although this recipe may seem that it would take loads of time to make, you will be surprised at how easy is to make.

FOR THE FILLING

For these delicious bananas you will mainly need ripe bananas as they are the star of this dessert recipe. However, besides you can add bananas to the filling or topping, you can also add other ingredients that go well with bananas foster. These might not be the ingredients that you see in the classic or traditional recipe, but as I always say here you can take a recipe that you love, personalize it, and make it your own.

  • Nuts; such as walnuts, pecan nuts, pistachios, sliced almonds, etc.
  • Raisins.
  • Raisins soaked in rum.
  • Dried prunes.

Additionally, you can not only use this or other ingredients for the filling, but also you can add them when you are making the sauce. Therefore, you can enrich the flavors of the sauce and they will blend well with the banana flavor.

ALTERNATIVE INGREDIENTS

To begin with, one of the main ingredients of this dessert recipe is the regular butter. However, to make this recipe vegan-friendly, I use vegan butter. If this is not an option for you, you can use other alternatives to make the sauce.

  • Vegetable oil.
  • Coconut oil.
  • Margarine.

Although, these options can work well as a replacement, bear in mind that they might give a different flavor to the sauce.

Ingredients

  • A Pinch of Salt.

  • 1 Tbsp. of Vegan butter.
  • 1 Tsp. of Vanilla extract.
  • 2 Large ripe bananas.
  • 2 Tbsp. of Brown sugar.
  • ½ Tsp. of Ground cinnamon.
  • Vegan vanilla ice cream.

Instructions

VEGAN CREPES

  1. Sieve the flour in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the salt and one teaspoon of sugar (optional) and integrate well.
  3. Add the oil then, little by little the non-dairy milk, and mix well (if you get any lumps sieve all the mix or use a blender).
  4. Let the crepe batter refrigerate in the fridge for 30 minutes for better results. The longer the better even you can prepare this in advance the day before (let the batter sit in the fridge overnight).
  5. Place a nonstick frying pan/skillet (special crepe pan or non-stick pan) on the burner/ring at medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with coconut oil or unsalted vegan butter (around 1 tsp), and swirl the pan to spread the melted vegetable oil/butter. It is recommended to do this step each time you cook a new crepe.
  6. Pour a thin layer of the crepe batter into the nonstick pan or skillet, swirling the batter to spread it evenly, and carefully flip the crepe when you see that it is cooked. You don't have to be a professional to do this, you can always use a spatula.
  7. Place the cooked vegan crepes on a plate.
  8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you finish with the remaining batter or you can prepare just a few and leave the crepe mix in the fridge for later.
  9. If you are making these vegan crepes in advance when they cool down at room temperature cover them with plastic wrap and keep them refrigerated until consumption.
