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.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the crepes. This recipe calls for 2% milk. I had to dilute the half-and-half to get the correct consistency.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla. (I’m making a double batch).
Add melted butter.
Add 2% milk.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/3 cup of batter to hot skillet. Immediately rotate pan so crêpe batter fills the bottom of the skillet.
Fry 2 to 4 minutes and then flip over to other side and cook the bottom side for a couple of minutes more.
Stack crepes on a plate and keep in a low 200 degree oven to keep warm.
I used these ingredients for the banana split filling and garnishes.
Mash fresh pineapple with a potato masher until you achieve one cup of mashed pineapple. (You can also use canned pineapple).
Combine cornstarch ad sugar in a small saucepan.
Add mashed pineapple and water.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Bring mixture to a boil. Boil and stir for about 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
Place warm crêpe on top of a plate.
Add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of pineapple filling and spread on the bottom of the crêpe. Leave a one-inch border on the bottom.
Spread sliced bananas over top of pineapple filling.
Carefully begin rolling up crêpe.
Keep rolling carefully.
Roll up crêpe completely.
Add pineapple filling over top of the crêpes.
Sprinkle with walnuts.
Layer with sliced bananas. Add whipping cream and maraschino cherries, as desired.
