By: Marge Perry & David Bonom

  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Cuisine: French
  • Course: Breakfast



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups milk, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple , peeled, halved lengthwise, cored, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 large mango, peeled, pitted, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 3 bananas, halved lengthwise then halved crosswise


  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  1. For the crepes: Combine the flour, sugar, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Combine the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Slowly whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until smooth. Let the batter stand at least 30 minutes or cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Heat an Anolon® Advanced Umber 9.5-Inch Nonstick Crepe Pan over medium heat. Whisk the batter and pour 1/4 cup into the crepe pan, tilting in all directions to evenly cover the bottom. Cook until the crepe is set and very lightly browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn the crepe over and cook 20 seconds longer. Transfer the crepe to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter.
  3. Brush the fruit with melted butter. Heat an Anolon® Advanced Umber 11-Inch Deep Square Nonstick Square Grill Pan over medium heat. Add some of the fruit and grill in batches until the slices are well marked and tender, 4 minutes per side for the pineapple and mango, 2 minutes per side for the bananas. Cut the fruit into 1-inch pieces and combine in a bowl; mix well.
  4. Meanwhile to make the drizzle, combine the orange juice, rum and sugar in an Anolon® Advanced Umber 1 Qt. Saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until syrupy and reduced to about 3/4 cup, 25-27 minutes. Remove from the heat and swirl in the butter until melted.
  5. To assemble: Place a crepe on a work surface and spoon some of the fruit in a line across the lower third. Roll the crepe up jellyroll style, being sure to fold in the ends. Repeat with the remaining crepes and fruit. To serve, place 2 filled crepes onto a plate and drizzle with the rum mixture then sprinkle with toasted coconut.
