Nutella-Stuffed Crêpes Recipe:

You’ll Need

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Butter for melting
  • Filling: 1 jar Nutella or other chocolate spread

Prep and Cook

  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs
    Then whisk in flour, sugar, milk, water, vanilla, and salt, until no lumps remain
    Batter should be fairly thin and fluid (not thick like traditional pancake batter)
  • Heat a large flat pan over medium heat
    Melt a knob of butter and then lift the pan off the burner
    Pour in just enough crêpe batter to cover the bottom (approximately 1/2 cup depending on the size of your pan)
    Immediately swirl the pan to distribute the crêpe batter evenly across the bottom of the pan
  • Cook the crêpe for approximately 30 seconds on the first side
    Run a heatproof spatula around the edge of the crêpe, and then slowly slide the spatula down the center of the crêpe and carefully flip it over
    Cook crêpe on the second side for another 30 seconds or so
    Slide the cooked crêpe onto a heatproof plate (you can pile them on top of each other)
    Let them cool a bit while you repeat the process and make more crêpes
  • To fill, lie a crêpe on a clean flat work surface and spread half generously with Nutella. Fold over into a triangle
    Repeat with remaining crêpes and enjoy!
