Nutella seems to be a pretty hot commodity. This may shock you, but I’m not a huge fan. But my boys love it. And they love crepes. So for a weekend breakfast celebration for surviving the first week of 6th and 11th grade, I made them Crepes with Nutella Whipped Cream.
Nutella Whipped Cream (make this first, maybe even the night before but don’t whip it!)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Nutella
dash of vanilla or cinnamon while whipping
1. Heat the cream until almost boiling.
2. Turn heat down and add Nutella.
3. Stir well until Nutella has melted completely.
4. Refrigerate in a mixing bowl until very chilled.
5. Add a dash of vanilla or cinnamon and whip until soft peaks form.
If you aren’t a magician who can make whipped cream and crepes at the same time, put the whipped cream back in the fridge so you can start on the crepes.
1 cup flour (I used half white and half wheat)
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
1. Combine all the ingredients except the butter in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Add the butter and give it another couple pulses.
3. Heat a pan (a regular one will do since most normal people don’t have a crepe pan lying around) to slightly over medium.
4. Pour in some batter so you have a four or five inch circle. Cook until the crepe starts getting a matte finish (as opposed to shiny batter). It’s going to be very quick!
5. Flip using a rubber scraper.
6. Cook for another 30-45 seconds.
7. Repeat until you have fed everyone or you just can’t take it anymore.
You can fill the crepes with the whipped cream or just top them with it. I topped mine and added a little powdered sugar. I think I whipped the cream a tiny bit too long but it still tasted great and my boys didn’t seem to notice that it looked a little bumpy.
If Nutella whipped cream is not appealing to you, feel free to top with anything that suits your fancy. We’ve used plain whipped cream, sliced fruit, maple syrup, jam and butter. All are excellent.
I hope you have a good weekend. If your kids start school Tuesday, I wish them the best of luck.
