The crepes are spread with a thin layer of flavored cream cheese. Then, they're topped with bananas cooked in butter and brown sugar...and some chopped glazed pecans. If you love Bananas Foster, you'll flip for these crepes. Even better, they're ready to eat in about 15 minutes!
Creamy Bananas Foster Crepes
Inspired by Martha Stewart Living
Step 1: For each serving, thinly spread two Frieda's French-style crepes with 2 tbs. of your favorite flavored cream cheese. [Note: I used White Chocolate Philadelphia Snack Delights.] Fold each crepe top down and then left over right, forming a triangle. Place the crepes slightly overlapping on a plate. Set aside while you make the topping.
Step 3: To assemble, spoon approximately 1/3 cup of the syrup and half of the bananas on top of each two-crepe serving. Sprinkle with chopped glazed pecans and powdered sugar. Serve with a bit of whipped cream...or ice cream if you're feeling particularly indulgent!
These crepes are very decadent...definitely for special occasions! They're sweet, with a bit of creaminess from the cream cheese. The pecans add a nice bit of crunch, and the crepes are fresh and flavorful. The addition of maple syrup and salt aren't commonly found in Bananas Foster, but I liked the nice background flavors they added. Add it up, and you've got a company-worthy dessert that you can whip up after the busiest of work days. This is a great recipe to have in your back pocket.
I frequently keep packages of these ready-to-go crepes on hand for quick desserts. We especially love them filled with jam and topped with fresh berries and whipped cream! Frieda's French-Style Crepes can be found in the Produce section of most large grocery chains, including most HEBs in Texas.
Disclosure: Frieda's provided me with a coupon, which I used to purchase these crepes. The opinions expressed are my own.
