Ingredients

  • soft dark brown sugar 100g
  • butter 100g, plus more melted for frying
  • bananas 4, ripe but firm with no brown spots, cut diagonally into 1cm slices
  • bourbon 2 tbsp
  • double cream 2-3 tbsp
  • vanilla ice cream to serve (optional)

CRÊPES

  • eggs 2 large
  • whole milk 250ml
  • plain flour 150g
  • caster sugar ½ tsp

Method

  • Step 1

    To make the crêpes, whisk together the eggs and milk. Put the flour in a bowl with a pinch of salt and the sugar, then gradually whisk in the egg mix. You are looking for the consistency of single cream so add a little more milk if needed. Pour into a jug and rest while you prepare the bananas.

  • Step 2

    Put the sugar and butter in a non-stick frying pan and melt together. Add the bananas and cook for a couple of minutes each side. Stir in the bourbon, then add the cream and shake the pan so everything is emulsified. Take off the heat.

  • Step 3

    Heat a non-stick frying pan (approximately 18cm wide) over a medium heat. Use a piece of kitchen paper dipped in melted butter to butter the pan. Pour in some batter and swirl around the pan to coat the base.

  • Step 4

    Leave until bubbles appear on the top and the underside is golden, then flip. Cook the other side and tip onto a plate. You can keep the cooked crêpes between sheets of baking paper in a low oven to keep warm.

  • Step 5

    To serve, gently reheat the sauce and bananas, then serve 3 crêpes each with the butterscotch bananas and a scoop of ice cream, if you like.
