Banana-Cream Crepes

Filipino Style Recipe: Banana cream crepes is a popular dessert made of very thin pancakes originated from France. It is consists of flour, eggs, milk, vanilla and salt whisk together then chilled overnight. Cooked and swirl in hot pan with butter until almost set. I got this idea from one of the stall somewhere in Boracay last month, they served crepes with different variety of fillings. I used banana slices and vanilla ice cream in this recipe, but you may choose your own combination of fillings.
