Sweet Crêpes


Snowed in today, what's for breakfast? There's been a jar of nutella in the closet I've been eyeing for a while.

I got the idea for these nutella banana crêpes from a good breakfast I had at Z Square in Harvard square a while back.

I adapted the following crêpe batter recipe from The Joy of Cooking.

3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Sift all dry ingredients then add and mix

2 eggs
2/3 cups of milk
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

I found the batter to be too thick as my first two crêpes failed miserably. I added another 1/4 cup of water and turned the heat up and I got much better results.

Plate your crêpes with nutella and sliced banana roll it and enjoy. Great crêpes but actually quite filling and very, very sweet.
