Method

  1. To make the crêpes, sift the flour into a mixing bowl with the salt, add the egg and gradually add the milk, whisking until you have a smooth, creamy batter. Whisk in the sugar. Cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°. To cook the crêpes, you will need a small blinis pan, wipe with a little of the sunflower oil and heat, swirl a little of the batter over the pan - enough to just cover the base, cook for 1 minute, flip over and cook for a further 1 minute.
  2. Continue until you have 8 crêpes. Push each crêpe into a Yorkshire pudding bun tray (generally 4 holes to a tray so you can cook in 2 batches if preferred). Brush each crêpe with melted butter and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until golden and just beginning to crisp up. To serve, peel and slice the bananas, arrange over then base of each crêpe basket, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream then drizzle each with a tablespoon of toffee sauce.
