Nutella & Strawberry Crepes


During my Junior year of college, I was lucky enough to spend a month studying abroad in Europe. England, France, Austria, Switzerland, and Germany...Oh how I'd loved to go back, and fully intend to for my husband and I's overdue honeymoon in 2013! During my travels, I discovered my deep love for crêpes. Sweet crêpes, savory crêpes, fruit filled crêpes, and breakfast crêpes...delicious! When I returned to the states, I missed them terribly. Much to my surprise, one of my roommates knew how to make them...salvation! I of course took note of the recipe and tweaked it to my liking. Basic crêpe recipes are all pretty much the same, you really can't go wrong!

Sweet Crêpes
2 large eggs
3 tbsp melted unsalted butter
3/4 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup water
1 cup white flour
3 tbsp white sugar
a few dashes cinnamon

Toppings & Filling
Nutella
fresh strawberries
powdered sugar

In a medium sized bowl, combine eggs, melted butter, milk, water, flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk together until well combined and flour lumps are smooth. Refrigerate the mixture for about 30 minutes to allow bubbles to settle.


Preheat a medium frying pan over medium heat. When your mixture has settled, transfer it to a measuring cup. Should be almost 2 cups worth of batter. VERY IMPORTANT: Spray your pan EACH time before you pour a new crêpe, it will stick otherwise. Once your pan is hot and you have sprayed your pan with cooking spray, pour a small amount of batter into the pan. Immediately roll the pan in a circular motion to thin out the crêpe, keeping a circle shape as much as possible. Crêpes should be very thin, not thick like a pancake. Cook your crêpe for about a minute to a minute and twenty seconds and then flip. The crêpe should be a light golden brown before flipping, if not, give it a little more time until it is. Once flipped, cook for another minute and then transfer to a plate. Repeat the process until you run out of batter, spraying the pan each time before pouring a new crêpe. If your first crêpe tears, don't worry. It may take you one or two tries before you get the hang of it. Heck, I normally have one or two scrap crêpes before I get it right!


Allow your crêpes to cool before spreading your Nutella, otherwise it with be very runny and messy! Spread a thin layer of Nutella on each crêpe, add a few diced strawberries, and roll up like a burrito. Once rolled, top with another thin layer of Nutella, diced strawberries, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Enjoy!

  17. These look delish. Do they store well? I’ve been asked to bring dessert to a dinner party and I’d like to make them the day before, if possible. If not, will they keep from early in the day to dinner time?

  19. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
