  8. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract, stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  9. Add 2 tablespoons of water, cover and let the sauce simmer about 2 minutes.
  10. Add the sliced bananas, gently spooning the sauce over each piece and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bananas are glossy and coated with the sauce.

  12. To serve, spoon a generous 1/3 cup of the bananas in the center of each crepe and fold the left and right side of the crepes to cover.
  13. Top each crepe with 2 tablespoons ice cream, and any pan juices from the bananas on top, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve right away.
