I received a product for this post, but all opinions are my very own.
Simplified crepes filled with a light and fluffy Nutella whipped cream and fresh strawberries!
I have always loved my mom’s Hungarian crepes. I grew up calling them “Palacsinta,” but they are definitely a crepe. We’d fill them with a little jam and top them with cups of powdered sugar. Ok, that’s not true. We didn’t cover them in cups of powdered sugar, I did. They were an absolute treat!
I recently developed a craving for crepes and wanted to make my mom’s recipe. However, when I asked her for the recipe, she wasn’t able to tell me. She drew a complete blank. She said after making crepes for 50 years she no longer uses a recipe, she just throws in the ingredients until it looks right. I was a little perturbed at this, I wanted exact ingredients and exact measurements! Baking is a science or so I’m told. But then I thought about how I make buttercream. I never use a recipe, I go solely by look and by taste. So maybe mom isn’t off her rocker after all.
I decided to give it a whirl. Literally. I received this gorgeous Cuisinart blender for review and figured that would be the perfect way to make my crepes! I tossed in my own handful of ingredients and blended until my batter appeared to be the perfect consistency to my untrained, crepe-making eye. The batter wasn’t too thick like pancake batter but it wasn’t too runny either. My first crepe was questionable. It smelled like a crepe, but didn’t quite look like a crepe. I didn’t let it brown long enough. But the second crepe was perfect. After that, it was smooth sailing!
I filled our crepes with a Nutella whipped cream. It was simple, light and paired nicely with lots of fresh, succulent strawberries. While measuring everything to a “t” is important, sometimes it’s nice to just go with the flow.
I highly recommend making crepes in a blender. Less to wash and your batter comes together quickly and lump free. I was surprised how quiet yet powerful this blender was! And it was light and easy to move around the kitchen. My kids aren’t asking will I make crepes again, but WHEN will I make crepes again! I think I have a winner!
