Banana and Chocolate Mascarpone Crepes

Mon, Jan 11, 2010

Baking, Pastry, Recipes

The combination of chocolate and banana is highly underrated.

 Chocolate Mascarpone and Banana Crepes

Aside from some frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, and chocolate chip banana bread, the combination is largely overlooked.  Well, break out your bananas because we are going to make something that will make chocolate lovers rejoice.

The crepes are chocolate but they do not have any sugar in them.  Before you say I am mad consider that the crepes are going to be filled with bananas which are naturally very sweet.  Along with bananas there is a rich, bitter-sweet, chocolate mascarpone filling, and once plated the crepes are dusted with powdered sugar.  With all that sweetness the crepes themselves needed to be bitter to provide a nice contrast in flavor.

If you love chocolate and bananas then you need to make this recipe.

Banana and Chocolate Mascarpone Crepes  Yield 12 crepes

For the crepes:
2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3 ounces all-purpose flour
1 ounce unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon coffee liquor
3/4 cup Milk, 1% or higher

For the filling:
6 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon coffee liquor
Pinch of salt
3-4 large bananas, sliced into 1/8″ disks

Additional powdered sugar for dusting

Combine the cocoa, eggs, vanilla, and coffee liquor in a large bowl until well combined. Whisk in the flour and butter and mix until there are no lumps.  Set aside.

In a heavy sauce pan scald the milk (bring to a low simmer before removing from the heat).  Add 1/4 of the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly, to temper, then combine the remaining milk. 

Chill the batter for 30 minutes.

After the batter has chilled, place an 8″ non-stick omelet, saute, or crepe pan over medium heat.  Spray it lightly with non-stick cooking spray.

Pour 1 1/2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) of batter into the center of the hot pan an swirl the pan until the batter coats the pan evenly.  Cook until the edges release from the pan and the underside of the crepe slides easily in the pan, about one minute.  Flip the crepe, or turn with  a rubber spatula, and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute on the second side.

Remove to a plate and stack the cooked crepes between layers of parchment or wax paper.

To assemble spread a thin layer of the mascarpone mixture on the center of the crepe.  Lay a line of bananas down the center then roll into a tube.  Alternately, you can spread the mascarpone over 1/4 of the crepe, lay a few bananas on top then fold the crepe in half, and then in half again.
