Bobby Flay's Banana Foster's Crepes

So this is such a great dish, we love bananas foster, and this is a great way to have it.  Sorry about the upside down picture, I don't know what happened, but oh well :).  This is a basic crepe recipe with sliced bananas inside, and then topped with whipped cream.  The real star for this for me was the caramel sauce, I think it was the best one I have ever made.  The whole brunch meal was out of this world, but here is the recipe for the caramel sauce I found in Bobby Flay's Bar Americain cookbook.  The alcohol isn't necessary, you can use flavorings if you want, extracts, or just leave them out, but it will taste different.  We all gave this a perfect 10, and the calories for 12 crepes are per crepe 315 calories, and that includes one crepe, some slices of banana, some whipped cream and the caramel sauce.  The caramel sauce by itself, for 1/12, is 142 calories.  Here's what to do:

1 c sugar
1 c cream
1/4 t cinnamon
1 T orange liqueur
1 T dark rum

Combine the sugar and 1/2 c water and bring to a boil.  Cook until the caramel is amber in color, about 8 minutes.  While doing this, warm the cream to a simmer.  When the caramel has finished cooking, add the cream carefully, whisking the entire time.  Stir in the cinnamon and flavorings.  Serve warm.

  1. Did you just use your own recipe for the crepes??? Except for the liqueur, this sounds really good. However, I do not like rum flavoring, so that would not work. Love mom
