Alrighty, we’re on round 2 for the delicious French crepes. The basic crepe recipe (which you will need for these crepes) can be found here. When I was in Paris I was amazed to see all the little creperie cafes and the tiny little roadside crepe stands. These miniature creperies were big enough to stand behind with a compartment storing all the ingredients and a small little top to cook on.
For about four Euros you could walk right up and choose from a myriad of crepe flavors. Every one of these stands holds the LARGEST jar of Nutella hazelnut spread I’ve ever seen in the whole world and if you’re a Nutella lover like me, its like heaven in a jar, nectar of the gods. (If you’re a weirdo like my husband, who doesn’t appreciate the divine qualities of Nutella, you can get a plain old crepe.) I found myself stopping at these cafes and stands all over the city for a delectable snack. Exploring the artist districts of Montmarte? Nutella Crepes. Standing in line to climb the Eiffel Tower? Nutella Crepes. Wandering through the gardens at the Palace of Versailles? Nutella Crepes. As we left Paris and headed northward to London, I wanted to cry, not for leaving the romantic city but for leaving its food. I did what I could to replicate the delicious treats back home and found although not as romantic as eating in the square in front of Notre Dame while the bells ring, they still taste just as good at home. Whether you’re making a delicious breakfast or just hankering for a sugary dessert, these strawberry Nutella crepes will do the trick!
