Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan in a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn, and cook the other side.
  4. Once the crepe is cooked, spread a thin layer of Nutella over half of the crepe while it's still hot. Fold the crepe in half, then in half again to form a triangle. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Serve hot, garnished with your choice of powdered sugar, fresh berries, or whipped cream. Enjoy your homemade Nutella crepes!

Tips

  • Always whisk the flour and eggs first before gradually adding the milk and water. This will help prevent lumps in your batter.
  • The batter should be thin enough to easily spread on your pan or griddle. If it's too thick, add a bit more water or milk.
  • Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes before making the crepes. This allows the gluten in the flour to relax and ensure a tender texture.
  • Use a non-stick pan. To prevent the crepes from sticking, use a non-stick pan or skillet. This will make it easier to flip the crepes and ensure they cook evenly.
  • Preheat the pan over medium heat before pouring the crepe batter. This helps in achieving a golden-brown color and prevents the crepes from sticking.
  • Cook the crepes until they're lightly browned on the bottom, then flip and continue cooking until done on both sides. Be careful not to overcook them, as they can become tough.
  • You can fill your crepes with Nutella or any other filling you prefer. You can use a spoon or a spatula to spread it out in a thin layer. Other popular choices include whipped cream, fresh fruit, fruit sauce, and cream cheese.
  • For a fun serving idea, set up a crepe bar where everyone can assemble their own creations with whatever toppings and fillings they want!
