Ingredients

  • Milk                                          1-½ cups
  • Flour (Wheat or Buckwheat)       1 cup
  • Eggs                                          2
  • Cooking Oil                                1 tablespoon
  • Sugar                                        2 tablespoons

Equipment Needed

  • Flat non-stick pan
  • Wooden spatula

Procedure

  1. Put the flour and eggs in a blender and blend to mix well.
  2. Then add the milk, sugar and vanilla. Blend again to form a smooth flowing batter. Add a little water (not too much) if the batter appears too thick.
  3. Place a flat non-stick pan over medium heat and spread a little oil on it.
  4. Pour 2 ladles of the batter on the pan and spread it around with a spatula.
  5. Cook for about 2 minutes and then flip it over. Cook for another 2 minutes on the other side too.

Tip: Take care not to let the crepe surfaces turn dark brown in color.

  1. Transfer the cooked crepe to a serving plate.
  2. Spread a thick layer of nutella on one surface of the crepe. Then spread slices strawberries on it.
  3. Fold the crepe from one side to form a semi-circle. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top and serve.

Tip: You can also use bananas for the crepe filling.
