Can you believe I’ve never posted a recipe using Nutella? I should be ashamed.
Tonight I’m going to change this. And no, it’s not a cake.
Crepes are the French cousin of pancakes. They are thin and versatile. They can be served very simple with fruits or turned into elegant dishes folded and warmed in a sauce, rolled round a savoury or sweet filling, or stacked in layers with a filling and turned into a cake.
They are quite easy to make, of course after ruining the first one :))) I really don’t know anyone who’s first crepe was a success. With the first one you kinda test the consistency of the batter and the temperature of the pan. Both of them may require some adjustments.
Let’s turn the stove on and make some crepes
In a bowl or your blender/food processor mix 1 1/4 cup milk, 1 egg and 1/3 cup nutella
Add around 1 cup self rising flour. Optional you may add some sugar too. Mix well.
Crepes batter should have the consistency of whipping cream. Keeping that in mind at this point you may have to add more milk or more flour. Leave the batter to rest about 20 minutes.
Now heat a 8″ (crepes) pan over moderate heat. The pan is ready when few drops of water sprinkled over the surface start dancing :)) . Grease the pan with some (vegetable) oil and pour about 1/4 cup batter.
Quickly rotate the pan so the batter spreads out and cover the bottom of the pan.
Cook for about 1 minute or until the crepe is set. Shake the pan back and forth to loosen the crepe and flip it over.
Cook few more seconds and enjoy them .
