Crepes with Nutella Whipped Cream

I received a product for this post, but all opinions are my very own.

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.

Blender 2

Blender 3

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!

  4. Looks delicious! My mom makes crepes as well (we call them palačinke in Croatian) and she doesn’t have a formal recipe either; I guess I’ll just have to learn by watching (or cheat and use this recipe!)

    • Ah, thank you. I’ve addressed it, hope they take it down!
