Banana-Nutella Crepe // These crepes make for a great brunch or snack without throwing your calories overboard! | Tried and TastyThese are fabulous. Simply fabulous. While Steve and I were on our Honeymoon, one morning for breakfast, the main dining restaurant had a crepe bar. You could choose from a number of toppings to fill your breakfast crepe with and they would make it fresh just for you. I chose to fill mine with Nutella and Banana! It was SO delicious. I absolutely loved it! I’d never tried my hand at making crepes before at that point, and I still hadn’t until now! This recipe is so easy – and quick. The best part about it, is it gives you that little bit of sweetness you want and are craving without throwing your calories over the bridge. The other thing that’s great, is you can make them in advance and warm them up later. Try it for yourself, you’ll see just how wonderful they are.

Ingredients

Crepe batter

  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter
  • Pink of salt
  • 1/8 c. low-fat milk
  • 1/4 c. water

Filing

  • 1/4 c. Nutella
  • 2 bananas peeled and sliced
  • Confectioners' sugar optional

Instructions

  1. To make the batter: combine the flour, eggs, melted butter, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add the milk, then the water, whisking to prevent any lumps.  

  2. Heat a 10'' nonstick pan over medium heat. Add enough butter to coat, then add 2 tablespoons of the crepe batter and swirl the pan to cover it in a thin, even film (use a rubber spatula to help, if needed).

  3. Cook on the first side to 3 to 4 minutes, until the bottom takes on a deep golden brown color. Flip and slather a tablespoon of the Nutella down the middle of the crepe, then top with a scant quarter of the banana slices. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes longer, until the bottom is golden brown.

  4.  Fold the crepe sides over the filing and slip onto a plate. Top with a few slices of banana and a shake confectioners' sugar if you like. Repeat make three more crepes.

[My 2 Cents]
I've made these about three times since I recently found the recipe. The first two times I initially combined the flour and the egg as the recipe directs, but quickly learned that the batter will more likely be lumpy by the time you get to the melted butter and milk. The third time I made them I decided to start with the wet ingredients and then incorporate the flour, and that worked out much better!

    Annonymous,

    I’m sorry your first attempt at the recipe wasn’t successful. I’ve made these several times and each time they’ve turned out great. The recipe states to use a 10″ pan, however the only size I had was an 8″ and that worked just as well, they were just smaller than they could have been. I’m glad you were able to figure out where things went array, hopefully next time you will be able to enjoy this delicious treat! It’s not one to be missed :)

      Ker, you are absolutely right! Using a griddle doesn’t exactly make crepe making easy! Ha! But, we made due with what we had and they were yummy none the less ;)
