I was always a fan of crepes, and I still am! I especially love sweet ones for dessert and/or breakfast, and savory ones for lunch and/or dinner meals. I used to use an old-fashioned crepe maker when I was much younger and then I got a new-age Cuisinart Crepe Maker about 5 years ago. The Cuisinart Crepe Maker not only makes crepes but also makes pancakes, waffle cones, pizzelles, tortillas and more! Anyway, the crepes it makes are absolutely fantastic!!
I also found Alamarra brand Crepe Mix. I can just mix equal amounts of the mix and water to make the crepe batter! And I have recipes for the fillings which I plan to share, but I will start with my favorite - Nutella Crepes!! I have been making these Nutella Crepes for breakfast and/or a late night snack for years! They are so easy to make!
INGREDIENTS (for each 8-inch crepe)
1/3 cup Alamarra Crepe Mix
1/3 cup water (increase or decrease a bit, to adjust the thickness of the crepe)
Splash of vanilla extract (if you wish)
Several tablespoons Nutella (enough for your liking)
1. Preheat your Crepe griddle maker to about 400 degrees.
2. Mix the Alamarra Crepe Mix with the water.
3. Pour batter on griddle. Cook for approx. 3 minutes.
4. Be sure to follow your crepe griddle instructions for cooking temperature and time.
5. Remove Crepe from griddle maker and spread with Nutella.
6. Roll Crepe.
I promise to post some of my other recipes for what you can stuff in your crepes. You can continue to use the Alamarra Crepe Mix to make your easy crepes though - they sure beat bread or tortillas!
God Bless, Peg
