Ingredients
Pour people
  • For the pastry
  • Semi-skimmed milk : 500 ml
  • Plain flour : 250 g
  • Whole egg(s) : 4 whole
  • Fine salt : 1 pinch(es)
  • Caster sugar : 20 g
  • Unsalted butter : 40 g
  • Groundnut oil : 30 ml
  • For the garnish(es)
  • Banana(s) : 2 whole
  • Caster sugar : 50 g
  • Dark rum : 100 ml
  • Unsalted butter : 70 g
Method
  • ETAPE 1

    For the pancakes:
    Prepare a brown butter (cook the butter over a high heat for about 1 minute, until light brown).

  • ETAPE 2

    In a bowl, add the flour, salt and sugar and make a well. Break the eggs into the centre of the well and gently begin to mix together. Gradually add the milk and then the browned butter. Mix until a dough forms and then allow to rest for approximately 15 minutes.

  • ETAPE 3

    Lightly oil a hot non-stick pan, then add a ladle of the batter. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side.

  • ETAPE 4

    For the filling:
    Cut the bananas into slices.

  • ETAPE 5

    Melt the sugar in a saucepan to make a caramel, then add the butter and mix. Add a little water to loosen the caramel.

  • ETAPE 6

    Just before serving, put each crepe in a lightly buttered, hot pan and top with the bananas. Close the crepe by folding it in half and sprinkle the rum over the top. The alcohol will flame and then serve immediately.
