While you can’t go wrong with caramel and banana, the batter for this recipe is also great with savoury pairings like smoked salmon. It produces crêpes with a similar consistency to French galettes and keeps really well, so you can use the batter for up to a week after making.


Quantity Ingredient
3 large eggs
100g rye flour
150g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
90g dried banana chips
15-30g unsalted butter
4 bananas, peeled and halved lengthways

Salted caramel

Quantity Ingredient
100ml maple syrup
115g honey, plus extra to serve
125ml coconut oil, melted
70g almond butter
1 teaspoon sea salt flakes


  1. Add the eggs to a bowl together with 500 ml of water and whisk together. Continuing to stir, gradually sift over the flours and salt and mix together to form a smooth batter. Cover with plastic wrap, transfer to the refrigerator and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. While the batter is resting, put the banana chips in a food processor and blitz for 10–20 seconds to a crumb-like texture. Set aside.
  3. For the salted caramel, place all the ingredients, except the salt, in the food processor and blend together to form a smooth, lump-free sauce. Pour into a bowl and stir through the salt flakes.
  4. To cook the crêpes, heat just enough butter to coat the base of a small frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium–high heat until the butter has melted and is bubbling. Pour in enough batter to create a thin coating on the base of the pan. Lift, tilt and rotate the pan so the batter forms an even, thin layer over the entire base. Cook for about a minute on each side, until bubbles start to appear on the surface and the edges are solid and easy to lift up with a spatula. Stack the cooked crêpes on a plate and cover with a clean tea towel to keep warm while you cook the rest, adding a little butter to the pan as needed in between crêpes (I find I use less and less as the pan seasons).
  5. To serve, divide the crêpes between plates and top with the banana halves. Spoon over the salted caramel and a little extra honey and scatter over the dried banana crumbs to finish.
