Nutella and crepes, Nutella and crepey crepes. NUTELLLA!!!!
Nutella makes me a little nutty. It’s so good!
I made these simple crepes for my friend, Marissa a few weeks ago for brunch. We destroyed a huge plate of them (as well as a plate of bacon!) Crepes are way easier to make than you think and the batter can be made way ahead of time! This crepe recipe is modified from Alton Brown’s fool proof recipe!
I took these pictures after I had finished all of our crepes, so the pan is looking pretty tired. A crepe pan is not totally necessary for making crepes; any large non-stickish pan will do! I really want an electric crepe griddle. Maybe someday. A girl can dream.
Start by melting your butter.
Then combine the butter with the flour, milk, eggs, and sugar in your blender or food processor.
Let the batter sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, so there aren’t anymore bubbles in the batter. Bubbles will cause some rippage in the crepe.
Grease up your pan with a bunch of butter. Then pour in a nice bit of batter.
Roll the pan around to spread the batter out into a thin layer. Experts use a little wooden dowel like tool. I’m no expert.
Once they are golden on one side, flip them over quickly and take them off the the heat!
mine usually turn out a little irregularly shaped. I don’t mind it! But if you do, just trim the edges!
Spread on the Nutella.
Fold in thirds, top with fruits and powdered sugar and dig in!!!!!
- 3 Tablespoons melted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup flour

- butter for griddle
- Mix together the melted butter, eggs, water, milk, flour and sugar in a blender.
- Let the mixture settle for at least 10 minutes in the fridge.
- Heat a pan on medium high and coat with butter. Pour about a 1/8 cup of the batter onto the pan and swirl the pan to spread the batter. Cook for about 30 seconds and then flip.
- Let cook for another ten seconds. Remove from heat and repeat.
- Spread Nutella over the crepe and fold into fourths. Serve with fruit and powdered sugar!
