Dessert Crepes

4-year-old: Mom, do you know how to make Nutella?

4-year-old: They take chocolate and step on it.

(Arggggg…. don’t try it at home!!!)

Meanwhile, I have a new crepe recipe for you. Compared to the previous version in my blog, this one is thinner, lighter, and more pliable. So it’s suitable for your dessert party where you want a crepe soft enough to wrap around filling of your choice (fruits, jam, Nutella – yes!), and light enough not to fill you with more carbs.

(Adapted loosely from Smitten Kitchen)

For about 25 10″-crepes

375 g all-purpose flour
A pinch of salt

  2. Add eggs, one at a time.
  3. Slowly add milk, and whisk to incorporate with flour.
