Strawberry, Banana and Nutella Crepes

Strawberry, Banana and Nutella Crepes

I have become a Creped Crusader ever since I bought a jar of Nutella last week. To say I’ve been craving these crepes would be an understatement! However, a big challenge stood between me and the first bite of  those gooey, fruity bundles of goodness: my fear of flipping! That’s right, I can not flip food. Eggs, omlettes, pancakes… the list goes on. Whatever I flip ends up broken and looking downright ugly. This morning, I decided I had to get over my fear if I wanted to treat myself for working yet another weekend. So here it is:  the good, the bad, and the ugly of my crepe-making adventure.

Good Crepe
Ugly Crepe

Here you can see why I was so concerned about attempting the art of crepery. Take a look at crepe #1 below there. Yeeeaaaahhhh. This breakfast got messy quickly. I tried flipping the crepe too early and the sides of it started to tear. Onward and Upward! My second attempt turned out much better. You can see it on the right. My masterpiece! I realized it just takes a little practice to get it right.

With the hard stuff out of the way, I could focus on getting my filling ready. Sliced strawberries, bananas and the star of the show: Nutella! (You could really add any fresh fruit you like!!)

Crepe Batter

Here’s a look at the batter I made. So simple! Only 4 ingredients: egg, flour, browned butter and milk!

Then you just toss your filling material into the center of your crepe….

And wrap it up. Even the messiest crepe looks delicious and flawless once you get it all tucked in!

Time to “TREAT YO’ SELF!!!!”

CREPES FOR TWO
(makes 3)
INGREDIENTS
For crepes:
1 egg
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of flour
1 tablespoon of butter browned
Pinch of salt

For filling:
Sliced strawberries, banana, nutella
Powdered Sugar (optional)

PREP:
1. Melt butter in sauce pan until it’s lightly browned.
2. Mix egg and milk in a small mixing bowl
3. Add flour and salt to batter. Mix until the clumps are gone. Then add melted butter and mix well.
4. Heat a non-stick pan (I still added a little cooking spray to make sure batter wouldn’t brown.)
5. Scoop a quarter cup of batter and add to pan, then swirl the batter around until the batter coats the entire bottom of your pan. You want your crepes to be thin!
6. Cook batter on one side for 2-3 minutes. When your crepe is no longer runny, but solid, use a spatula to help you flip it to the other side and let it cook another 2 minutes or so.
7. Remove your finished crepe from the pan.
8. Use a spatula to spread a thin layer of Nutella on one side of crepe – A little goes a long way, you only need 1 tablespoon!
9. Top Nutella with fresh fruit and wrap sides into a “taco.”
10. Top crepe with powdered sugar if you wish.
11. Treat yo’ self to some crepe goodness!

Finished Product!
