Seriously, this is a “must make” recipe for company, holidays or weekend breakfasts. You will WOW your company or family after sampling just one bite. If you’re used to eating Banana Splits (the ice cream version), I think you’ll enjoy eating this fabulous breakfast recipe as well. You can dress it up as much as you desire. I added a little chocolate sauce on a few of them. It’s really terrific just about any way you make it. Not only that, this is surely one drool-worthy dessert, uh breakfast.

I made this fantastic breakfast entree during the lock down months in late April. My husband loves pineapple so Banana Split anything has always been one of his favorites. This is a very sweet breakfast item, however. I highly recommend you serve it with some protein or other savory flavors or you may find it too sweet.

Banana Split Breakfast Crêpes will have you salivating before you even taste a bite! These lovely crêpes are awesome. I guarantee your family will want these on your weekend breakfast menus frequently. If you enjoy Banana Split Desserts, this is the next best thing. Seriously.

Ingredients
  

CRÊPES:

  • 1 1/2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter melted

PINEAPPLE TOPPING:

  • 1 cup mashed, fresh pineapple or crushed pineapple drained really well
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water

GARNISHES:

  • 2 to 3 large bananas sliced
  • 10 oz. jar Maraschino cherries with stems rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Ready Whip whipped cream
  • powdered sugar

Instructions
 

CRÊPES:

  • Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Beat with electric mixer until smooth.
  • For each crêpe, lightly spray an 8-inch non-stick skillet.
  • Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter into skillet; immediately rotate pan until batter covers the bottom.
  • Cook until light brown; turn and brown on other side.
  • Remove from pan and place in ovenproof dish and store in preheated 200° or 250° oven while you prepare all of the crêpes.
  • Spread the edge of each crêpe with a few tablespoonfuls of pineapple topping leaving a one-inch border.
  • Place slices of banana over top of the pie filling.
  • Roll crêpe up carefully.
  • Place on platter.
  • Sprinkle each crêpe with powdered sugar.
  • Spread a thin strip of pineapple topping down the middle of the crêpe.
  • Garnish with banana slices.
  • Sprinkle walnuts over top of the bananas.
  • Spray whipped cream in the shape of a rose on each edge and the middle of each crêpe (3 total).
  • Garnish the whipped cream rosettes with maraschino cherries.
  • Yield: 12 crêpes.

PINEAPPLE TOPPING:

  • Mash down pineapple until you get one cup.
  • Combine cornstarch and sugar in a saucepan.
  • Add mashed pineapple and water.
  • Bring to a boil over low to medium heat and boil about two to three minutes, or until thickened.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Use to fill crêpes.

GARNISHES:

Notes

NOTE: A larger skillet can be used if necessary. John makes 1 1/2 batches at a time which makes about 20 crepes. Easily serves 4-6.
NOTE: You can also spread warm crêpes with a thin layer of sour cream or butter and then a thin layer of our favorite jellies, jams or preserves. Roll up tightly and place on plate. Sprinkle heavily with powdered sugar. Serve. Another option is to substitute pie fillings or fresh fruit for the jelly if desired.
NOTE: This works best with cooking spray or oil. Butter is not recommended to fry the crêpes.
NOTE: I prefer using 2% milk in the recipe.
