These sinfully delicious melt in your mouth crepes are great for breakfast..and are perfect for beginners in the kitchen! Check out this simple recipe for making crepes from scratch at home.
If you’re a regular on my blog you’d know I’ve always loved baking and cooking but this love turned into complete madness only a few months ago when I started this blog. I’ve made things I never imagined I would, not even in my dreams. I conquered my biggest fear- Bread making.. and I’m successfully ticking off many things off of my baking wishlist. I’ve made so many things I was petrified of likeg like-my cinnamon rolls and my classic homemade pizza and I’ve always been truly surprised at how simple it all was. A little guidance and a great recipe is all you need to make it easy for you and that’s what I’m here for!
Like always I was taken aback when I made these gorgeous crepes at home with the most basic ingredients and in almost no time. These Nutella and Banana Crepes served as the perfect Sunday breakfast, they were light and absolutely delicious and.. made from scratch! Yes my people we need no fancy ingredients to make this french style pancake..only what’s in your fridge already and a little technique which isn’t difficult at all.
RECIPE: Nutella and Banana Crepes
Makes: 4-5 crepes Prep Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: 5-6 minutes
- Caster Sugar, 3 tablespoons
- Egg, 1 large
- Milk, 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon
- Melted Butter, 2 tablespoons
- Vanilla Pod, 1 (or 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence)
- Flour, 1/2 cup
- Nutella, to your liking
- Bananas, 2 sliced
In a bowl, mix together sugar, egg, milk, vanilla beans and melted butter. Whisk this mixture for good 2 minutes and then add flour little by little. Keep whisking the flour in the wet mixture until a smooth batter is formed.
The batter will be runny. Let it rest for 20 minutes before cooking.
Brush a pan lightly with butter and heat it on medium flame. Once the pan is medium hot, pour 1/4 cup of batter on it and immediately start spreading the batter by twisting the pan in circular motions. You have to do this quickly otherwise the batter will start to cook and won’t spread. Make sure the crepes are thin.
After a little while you will start to notice little bubbles on top of the crepe, flip the crepe once the bottom side is light brown in color and cook the other side until it has evenly browned too.
Take the crepe off the heat and spread Nutella generously all over one side and place a few sliced bananas on it. Now fold the crepe twice so as to make a triangle (like in the picture). Place a few banana slices on top and drizzle some more Nutella on top before serving!
Crepes are best eaten warm. Do not be alarmed if the first crepe doesn’t turn out perfect. The second one will be better ! 🙂
