Ah..Nutella!! How would I have survived college days without you??!
This delectable Hazelnut Spread was first introduced to me by my best friend Dani when we were 6 or 7. And xx amount of years later, I still crave for it every day.
Nutella can be used for so many things: a spread, a dip, filling or glaze for cakes, a flavoring in cakes or other baked goods or eaten as is. I have to admit, I’ve eaten it straight from the jar but I’m sure I’m not the only one guilty of this. It is also one of my favorite ingredients to bake with. (You will find links to previous posts baking with nutella below).
To celebrate Nutella World day, I’m sharing my recipe of Crêpes. Spread a generous amount of Nutella while it’s warm and it will surely make your day!
Crêpes are French pancakes that originated from Brittany in the West Coast of France. The word comes from the Latin word “Crispus” which roughly means flat, crisp like texture. Crêpes may be made savory or sweet. Different ingredients may vary the taste of the batter such us the flour, extracts or fruit zests. I like to add orange flavor to it and it goes really well with Nutella.
Crêpes can be made ahead of time and be refrigerated. Just pop it in the microwave for 20 to 30 secs to warm it up and top with Nutella.
Until next time!
