Today is World Nutella Day, a day to eat, drink and celebrate Nutella. For some this chocolaty hazelnut spread is a pantry staple and can be found in the supermarket trolley every couple of weeks. I grew up eating lots of it and enjoyed a nutella sandwich on fresh sliced bread for morning tea most days.
A favorite Paris memory of mine is having a freshly made Nutella crepe from a cafe on the Champs Elysees on a cool autumn afternoon. I had noticed people walking around eating crepes and before I knew I was standing in line waiting to order one for myself. I had never had a nutella crepe before and it instantaneously became a favourite. When I returned home I tried a few recipes and came up with the one below that made my taste buds happy.
Miss Rens Nutella Crepe Recipe:
- 2 tablespoon of butter (melted) and a bit more for the pan
- ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 and a bit cups of milk ( more than 1 and less thank 1½ cups)
- In a bowl, combine flour, egg, butter, sugar, salt and half the milk. Whisk the batter well then add the rest of the milk a little at a time, until the batter is smooth and lump free.
- Melt a bit of butter in frying pan. Slowly pour in the batter and and let it cook for a couple of minutes on medium heat till little bubbles start to appear and the underside is lightly browned. Run a spatula underneath the crepe and flip it over. Cook until the other side is lightly browned. Remove from heat.
- Spread nutella over the crepe and then fold it in half.
- Cut up some strawberries and pop them on top.
- Eat it while it’s still hot.
Happy Nutella Day!
