Steps

  • 1 In large bowl, stir together brownie mix, flour, eggs, milk and oil until smooth.
  • 2 Spray 10-inch skillet with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray; heat over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto center of skillet. Immediately rotate skillet until thin layer of batter covers bottom. Cook over medium heat about 1 minute, turning once, until top appears slightly dry.
  • 3 Remove crepe to cutting board, flipping crepe over so first cooked side is facing up. Immediately roll up crepe; place on plate to cool. Cover with kitchen towel. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • 4 In large saucepan, cook butter and granulated sugar over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Stir in vanilla and lemon peel until well mixed. Add banana slices; gently toss until coated and slightly softened.
  • 5 Fill 1 crepe at a time, keeping remaining crepes covered. Gently unroll crepe; fill with slightly less than 1/4 cup banana filling. Reroll crepe; place seam side down on platter. Repeat with remaining crepes. Top crepes with drizzle of caramel topping and dollop of whipped topping. Sprinkle tops lightly with powdered sugar; sprinkle with walnuts. Serve immediately.
