A Crepe {Pronounced as K.r.e.p}  is a french origin thin pancake that can be served best either as a savory or sweet dish with a variety of different fillings.

I decided to prepare a sweet type of crepe, using two of my favorite fillings – that is: apple pie and the caramelized banana. I may have said this like a million times, but am not so much of a sweet tooth kinda girl, but these crepes made me go weak to my knees. They are so delicious, the aroma makes my taste buds fire crack with drool, and lets not forget, they look good too.

Let’s go over the ingredients.

3. On medium heat, on a non stick pan, take a small piece of butter – allow it to fully melt once the pan is quite hot. Lift the pan up and tilt it in a slanting position, add 2 tablespoon of the batter as you rotate it in a circular motion for the batter to form a circle. Place the pan back on the stove and let it cook till the side turn brown for about 30 secs to 1 min.
