Pineapple-Banana Crepas de Cajeta
tablespoon butter, melted
firm bananas, peeled, halved lengthwise and crosswise
of a cored peeled fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
cup dulce de leche, cajeta, or caramel sauce
tablespoon dark rum, brandy, or water
- For crepes, in a blender combine flour, milk, egg, the 1 tablespoon melted butter, the sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping and scraping the sides as necessary.
- Heat a lightly greased 6-inch skillet over medium heat; remove skillet from heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into skillet; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter evenly. Return skillet to heat; brown crepe on one side only (about 1 minute). Invert skillet over paper towels to remove crepe from skillet. Repeat with remaining batter, making six crepes total.*
- In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining butter over medium heat. Add bananas to hot butter and cook for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Turn and cook about 2 minutes more or until browned. Remove from skillet and set aside. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet; add the pineapple. Cook for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons of the dulce de leche; cook until heated through. Gently stir in bananas.
- In the skillet combine the remaining dulche de leche and the rum; heat through. Meanwhile, place a crepe, browned side down, on each of six dessert plates. Divide the fruit mixture among the crepes, placing fruit on one half of each crepe. Fold other half of each crepe over fruit mixture; fold crepe in half again, forming a rounded triangle. Spoon dulce de leche mixture over crepes.
