The remaining crepe trip – Nutella Crepes!! Tender crepes slathered with Nutella and crammed with strawberries, the purely concern with these is portion control. Just one further crepe, purely one more….
Great crepes are all about getting the batter right. I discover that the finest and simplest method to make a appropriate batter is utilizing a blender. No lumps, no tearing whilst you flip, with simply 10 seconds of whizzing!
It’s a breeze to make crepes should you get the batter right. Too thin, and the crepes tear really whilst you flip them. Too thick, then the batter is tough to swirl round to coat the pan to make thin crepes. The flawed ratio of ingredients, and the crepes pop out variety of rubbery (been there, executed that…) fairly than delicate and tender.
The different undertaking that of us have is making a glossy batter. Because the batter is so thin, even should you sift the flour, it’s fairly tough to get the lumps out of the batter utilizing a mixer.
So it truly is how I make crepes. I originally sourced the recipe from Cook’s Illustrated then over the years, it developed with little tweaks right the following and there. Using a blender, it literally takes 10 seconds to make the batter. Watch and see!
This is one other recipe made utilizing my Vitamix blender which has literally remodeled my life. I’m nonetheless pinching myself that Vitamix requested me to grow recipes for them!! A Vitamix has been on my Wish List for ages, but 12 months after year, Santa did not deliver…..
It’s been depraved fun finding what a Vitamix can do. Like – did you understand you may make breadcrumbs utilizing recent bread (not toasted) with a Vitamix? Yup! Get these blades whirling, scrunch the bread right into a ball then drop it into the Vitamix. And…did you understand you may make a béchamel sauce utilizing a Vitamix? Because the blades are so powerful, they really generate warmth so that you may make a white sauce that comes out hot and creamy utilizing a Vitamix!!!
Oh! Before I overlook – I made these Nutella Crepes with HOMEMADE NUTELLA! Just 5 meals – hazelnuts, icing sugar (confectionary sugar), cocoa powder, oil and vanilla. Whizz it up, and it truly is what you get……
Slather onto the crepes, upper with strawberries…..
And it truly is what you get.
Doesn’t it appear divine? Just like anything you’d get at a bistro.
The weekend is here!!! I understand you’ve been nice all week. So you deserve a treat!!! Go on. These Nutella Crepes are calling your name! – Nagi x

Because crepe batter is so thin, it’s tough to make the batter glossy and lump free, inspite of a mixer. I discover the best, simplest and quickest method is to make use of a blender. The key step is to relaxation the batter for 1 hour to enable the bubbles to subside – this supports guarantee the crepes don’t tear whilst you flip them. I don’t have a crepe pan, I simply make this in my non stick fry pan. Spread your crepes with Nutella and sliced strawberries for an irresistible breakfast or dessert!
1 cup / 150 g plain flour (all goal flour)
1 1/2 cups / 375 ml milk (I use low fat)
3 tbsp / 40 g unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp white sugar (optional, I discover the Nutella makes it candy enough)
Pinch of salt
2 tsp unsalted butter
Nutella (homemade or shop bought)
Strawberries , sliced
Icing sugar / confectionary sugar , for dusting
Place Batter meals in a blender. Pulse 10 times, or till glossy and lump unfastened (I used my Vitamix – Pulse Button!)
Place Batter in fridge for 1 hour (Note 1).
Heat a non stick skillet over medium excessive heat. Add 1/4 tsp butter and melt.
Add 1/4 cup batter (Note 2) and quick swirl to spread. Cook the primary facet for 1 minute or till there are pale golden brown patches. Flip and cook dinner the different facet for 30 seconds.
Slide out of the skillet onto a tray / board. Repeat with remaining crepes, overlapping them into the board. (Note 3)
Spread Nutella onto crepe – as a lot as you want! Cover half the crepe with strawberry slices, then fold into half then into quarters. Transfer to plate. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with further strawberries!
1. This permits the bubbles to subside and prevents the crepes from tearing whilst flipping.
2. The quantity of batter required will count in your skillet size. The flat base of my skillet is 21cm / 8.5″, the rim is 26cm / 10.5″. For this dimension skillet, 1/4 cup of batter is the quantity I ought to frivolously disguise the bottom with a skinny layer of batter. You desire it to be thin but now not paper thin (i.e. see through). Refer to the video for visuals.
3. To reheat, stack them onto a plate and microwave for 10 seconds. Do now not warmth too a lot otherwise they’re susceptible to tearing. Do now not disguise with dangle wrap as it’s going to sweat and make them tear.
4. The batter could be refrigerated for as lots as 48 hours.
