Happy Shroves Tuesday... I accepted the challenge.

2 Ingredient baked crepe - adapted from  'The gracious pantry

½ Banana
2 Egg whites
Cinnamon sprinkle 

Place the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass ovenproof dish. Bake at 180’C for 25 minutes.
Serve topped with almonds if you wish.
They are so sweet that there is really no need for syrup. But some fruit would be yummy as a topping!

I was very anxious to have this that I was almost going to opt out of having it as I was making another recipe for wholewheat flax and chia seed pancakes for my mother. But no. I did not. This was on my plan this week and I have to see Mel tomorrow so I guess I should really. Plus I had halved the recipe to make it more acceptable in my head. It worked nicely in the glass dish however it did seem to stick to the bottom of the dish; I will need to adapt this recipe if I were to make it again to try and limit this fault. Perhaps one solution could be to apply a sheet of grease proof paper on the bottom yet I have a feeling that this may not be very suitable either as I envision that the egg mixture would soften the paper and cling to the egg whilst it was cooking.
I baked in the oven for 20 mins and it seemed to be nice and puffy. I took this to the table and applied a small sprinkle of cinnamon before trying to roll it up like the classic crepe. It proved to roll up with some difficultly as it was nicely baked to the bottom and sides of the dish. I ate as much as I could and felt somewhat bad. Was it because of the fact it was a pancake? Or perhaps it may be because it was out of my routine of having something more fibrous?
I am still questioning how I felt about this change, but in hindsight I believe it to be one of experimentation which although different, I felt I had a slight burst of energy to accomplish some outstanding tasks I had been wanting to accomplish. (eg. I found a pair of old jogging bottoms which were to be thrown away yet I had salvaged them for use in my next upcoming project to produce a pair of trousers from a paper pattern =] ; I have managed to have a paper pattern completed to which I am now able to produce a toile and then buy a chosen fabric =] )

I haven’t managed to find the time to make some crepes for my family but I gave the recipe I had found for them to my mother to which she was happy to make up. The recipe I had given her was one provided by the waitrose website for the ‘Classic Crepe’
