I’m not even going to try to tell you this recipe is authentic. It will never compare to buying a crepe on the streets of Paris from an adorable cart like this guy’s…
But, when we went to Paris this summer, we ate more than our fair share of them, and we’ve been reminiscing about them ever since.
So rather than take the time to actually research how to make them at home, I went out on a limb and tried what I thought could be a super-easy way to get the same result with ingredients I already had in the pantry. And this was one of the great times it worked. The secret? Hungry Jack Buttermilk pancake mix, and of course, Nutella! Don’t blink because this method will be done before you know it.
All you do is mix up a batch of thinned-out pancake mix by using equal parts of mix and water.
Melt a pat of butter in a non-stick pan, then pour in just enough mix to cover the bottom of the pan.
Let it cook over medium-low, until you can see that it has cooked through to the top. Do not try to flip, just let it cook through from the bottom.
When it looks done, gently lift to see if it’s slightly browned. Then, flip it onto a plate, spread on the Nutella, fold it, and enjoy!
You could also substitute jam or cinnamon sugar! Seriously, spread on whatever you want–I’m not going to judge. And if you can’t find Nutella at your localstore, you can get a big ol’ jarheredelivered straight to your door!
When I surprised the kids with these, they went nuts. And trust me, they know their crepes! Let me know what you think of them! Bon appétit!
