Banana Crepes with Chocolate Sauce
February, 2003

Serves 6 / You can buy premade crepes to cut down on the time and effort, but homemade crepes are surprisingly simple to make. Don't worry if your first couple crepes are less than perfect; by the third one, you'll be a master.

1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup 2 percent reduced-fat milk
2 egg whites
1 egg
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
4-6 medium-large bananas, cut into 1-inch slices
2 tablespoons sugar
Bottled fat-free chocolate sauce, to taste

1. Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk milk, egg whites, and egg. Add to flour mixture, stirring well with whisk until smooth.
2. Coat an 8- or 10-inch frying pan with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan and quickly tilt pan so that batter covers its entire bottom. When crepe can be shaken loose and is lightly browned (about 1-2 minutes), turn over and cook on the other side for 30 seconds. Set aside crepes between layers of paper towel.
3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Sauté bananas until lightly browned on edges. Spoon into crepes, sprinkle with sugar, and roll up. Drizzle warmed chocolate sauce on top.
