Nutella Crepes


Ever since I got home from Napa with Bush’s Beans I’ve been craving an easy little treat we had thanks to Chef and Culinary Entrepreneur Jeffrey Saad.

Nutella Crepes!

I had never made crepes before, but Jeffrey said all I need is a non-stick pan and a touch of butter!

Crepes are very thin cooked pancakes that can be used for both sweet and savory dishes. The common ingredients include flour, milk, eggs, butter and a pinch of salt.

Not exactly a healthy breakfast, but I knew it was one my family would love on a cool November morning.

They were super easy to make, definitely not as scary as I thought.  I whisked mine up in the blender and then let the batter sit in the fridge for about an hour.

Jeffrey has a fantastic video on his site to show you exactly how to make crepes! If you’ve never made them before, I highly suggest watching his video…….and even if you have……go over and watch Jeffrey cook! He has so much passion!

I used my little 6 inch skillet. I poured the creamy batter into the hot pan and quickly swirled it to cover the bottom of the pan.   Once I had the hang of it, I was turning out crepes in no time!!

Nutella Crepes

Yield: 12 large or 16 small crepes

Nutella Crepes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1.5 ounces butter, melted
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • dash of vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • extra butter to cook with
  • Nutella
  • Powdered Sugar for garnish


  1. Combine 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, milk, water, salt, sugar, vanilla and melted butter in a blender and pulse until foamy add flour and pulse until smooth. Let the batter sit for an hour.
  2. Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook until the top loses its gloss, which should only take a minute, then flip. The bottom should be golden. Cook the other side for about 15 seconds and then slide out onto a plate. Keep warm in a 250F oven or serve right away spread with Nutella, roll and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  3. Makes about 12 large or 16 small crepes.


I used my little 6 inch skillet. I poured the creamy batter into the hot pan and quickly swirled it to cover the bottom of the pan. Once I had the hang of it, I was turning out crepes in no time!!

    Beautiful presentation and brilliant idea! It’s like delish on a dish!

    I LOVE it!! I will definitely be trying these soon!! I even have Nutella in the pantry. :)

    When I was a kid, my mom would make crepes, but she did it with pancake mix. She used extra eggs or something and made it thinner. I need to get the recipe from her. Anyways, we just filled ours with strawberry or grape jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar, and they were great.

    P.S. Your picture of the finished crepes is total GORGEOUSNESS!! Look at you go, with your awesome photography skills!!

    NO WAY! I love Nutella and was trying to think of something to do with it. YUM! Thanks.

    Were they just as divine as in Napa? Too bad we couldn’t be eating them together!

    I really want to learn how to make crepes. I feel like I need a crepe pan. (mostly because I *want* a crepe pan. Yum!

    Hello Yum! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at Crepes for a while now. This tutorial is a great oppurtunity! Thanks!

    I’ve never attempted crepes as yet but your tutorial and links make it look easier than I thought. Cheesecake and crepes all in a week’s time. You are doing awesome with new creations Cheryl. These look as delicious as your cheesecake you guest posted at Bake at 350.

    My son-in-law used to own a crepe cafe and the Nutella crepe with whipped cream was very popular! He made sweet and savory crepes:)

    Oh my YUM! We always make crepes, but I haven’t filled them with NUTELLA, duh!! Thanks for the tip!

    My friends have been raving about Nutella for sometime now, about how great it is. I have yet to try it. I am a little afraid that it will be as good as they say and I may not be able to stop eating it.

    Look at your FANCY self!
    I thought for sure these were going to have BUSH’s BEANS in them! ;o)
    Can you believe it…I don’t think I’ve EVER had a CREPE!
    Maybe I had one in Paris and didn’t even know it!
    Looks yummy!
    I know your sweet family is loving all of this FANCY~cooking!
    I’ve got to figure out what kind of PIE I’m making this year!

    I never thought to use Nutella in my crepes and I love nutella. I usually eat mine with some strawberry jam, or sometimes I eat them with strawberry’s and whip cream like a strawberry short cake. I have also made a cream mixing cream cheese lemon juice and sugar and put it inside. Really with the right recipe they are not bad plain. (add a little extra vanilla or orange flavor in the batter)

    I’ve always wanted to make crepes, but nobody else in my family will eat them! Im skeered. (scared)

  21. wendy posted on November 9, 2010 at 12:20 pm (#)

    Mmm, I love crepes, and I haven’t had them forever. I think I need to make some :)

  22. Donna M. posted on November 9, 2010 at 1:18 pm (#)

    I love anything with nutella oozing on it! LOL.

    Hey, I wanted you to know that I posted today about picnik and referred to your great recent article about it!

  23. Heather posted on November 9, 2010 at 3:42 pm (#)

    These are the best, but can get even better with sliced strawberries or banana’s and whipped cream! The kids come home from school and have one or two everyday. You can see why we need a CostCo size jar of Nutella!

  24. Brenda posted on November 9, 2010 at 4:26 pm (#)

    One of my friends in HS was french and her mom used to make these for us all the time, but I don’t think she used quite that much nutella, they are delicious though!

  25. Robyn posted on November 9, 2010 at 11:16 pm (#)

    These look delicious, Cheryl! I love making crepes and am wondering why in the world I hadn’t thought of making them with Nutella!

    Love this!

  26. Angie Smith posted on November 10, 2010 at 8:45 am (#)

    Yum! My husband and I had crepes for the first time on vacation a couple of months ago. I had nutella with fresh strawberries. Delicious!

  27. Kristen posted on November 10, 2010 at 10:09 am (#)

    The crepe that took my Nutella virginity. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for that recipe 😉

  28. Dana posted on November 10, 2010 at 6:07 pm (#)

    That is awesome! I would love for you to come link up at my Strut Your Stuff Linky Party!

    Crepes (or skinny pancakes as my kids call them) are one of our favorite weekend breakfasts. Nutella is a favorite filling, squeezing lemon & brown sugar out of the top spot. Great post to show how easy crepes can be!

  30. Lisa posted on November 10, 2010 at 10:12 pm (#)

    Your crepes look perfect and the Nutella in them sounds delicious.

  31. Tickled Red posted on November 11, 2010 at 7:11 am (#)

    Oh my word!! I am speechless. I’ll just say Thank You and go rummage in my pantry for all of the ingredients.
