My kids begged for pancakes the other morning, but I wanted to
add a little culture to their breakfast. My husband and I had been
daydreaming about strolling through the streets of Paris the night
before, and I had crepes on my mind.
This crepe recipe is super easy, quick and ridiculously
delicious! My kiddos had fun whisking the ingredients, and each
took turns, which was a pleasant morning surprise! They were
entertained by watching me attempt to flip the crepe.
We discussed the City of Lights and that people who live in
Paris speak French and eat lots of cheese, croissants, and crepes.
We showed my son on his globe how he would have to cross the
Atlantic Ocean to get here. The whole time I was teaching my son
some of my favorite things about Paris, my husband was on the
computer looking up flights. It is always fun to daydream.
Easy Banana Nutella Crepe Recipe
- 1 cup white flour
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup low fat milk
- ½ cup water
- pinch of salt
- 2 Tbsp. butter- softened or microwave for 30 seconds
- Cooking spray
- Nutella- desired amount to cover your crepe
- 1 banana thinly sliced
- Whisk flour, eggs, milk, water, salt, and butter until
- Heat pan on medium high, spray, and pour in a third of batter.
(Batter produces about three crepes.)
- Lift up pan and spread batter as flat as you can by tilting pan
right and left.
- After 2 minutes, check the under side of crepe before flipping
with a spatula. Be careful flipping the crepe as it is more
delicate than a pancake.
- Once crepe is flipped, onto half of the crepe, spread Nutella
and add sliced banana. Cook for 2 minutes or until golden
- First fold crepe in half and then roll it. I could not wrap my
crepe as easily as they do in Paris. My first crepe appeared more
like a quesadilla.
- By my second crepe, I figured out the roll. My kids LOVED
eating breakfast with their hands!
