Crepes with Strawberries and Nutella Cream Cheese

These are real authentic French Crepes. Well, I like to think they are anyway. I got the crepe recipe out of a French Text book a long time ago when I was taking French in High school. The original recipe actually uses an electric beater, but I've discovered over time that since the batter is so runny it works great to mix it in a blender.

Crepes
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 2 Cups milk, divided
  • 1 Cup flour
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
Add eggs, sugar,, salt and 1/2 cup milk to the blender. Blend together. Add flour to the blender. Blend until smooth, stopping the blender to scrap the sides if necessary. Add the milk and the butter. Blend. Pour batter onto a hot griddle, flip when bubbles form on top. Does not need to cook as long as a pancake.  If you are having a hard time getting them to flip, you do not need to flip, just let them sit on the long enough that they cook all the way through. Fill with Nutella Cream Cheese and strawberries. Top with strawberries and chocolate syrup. Or use any filling or topping desired.

Nutella Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese or neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
Beat together cream cheese and nutella.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
