Nutella Strawberry Banana Crepe with Chocolate Cream Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 c. fresh strawberries
  • 1 c. whipping cream whipped with 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar, optional garnish
  • 2 bananas thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/2 c. Nutella spread
  • Sauce:
  • 1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Basic French Crepe:
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2   c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter plus extra for oiling pan

Instructions

  1. For sauce:  In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips with the heavy cream. Stirring constantly, continue to cook until chocolate is melted and sauce is smooth. Stir in vanilla.  Set aside until ready to serve the crepes. Makes about 1 1/4 cups.
  2. For the crepes: Sift the flour, sugar and salt and set aside.  In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk together with an electric mixer or do in a blender. Beat in flour mixture until smooth then stir in melted butter.
  3. Heat a small crepe pan or skillet over medium high heat. Add some melted butter, heat until it sizzles then pour out the butter into a small dish. Pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter. Tip and rotate the pan around to spread the batter as thin as possible. Cook for a few minutes to brown and then flip over using a spatula and brown a tiny bit on the other side. Put out in single layer until cooled and then you can stack and refrigerate or freeze.
  4. To assemble the crepes, take one crepe and spread with about 1-2 tablespoons of the Nutella down the middle and top with some strawberries and banana slices. Fold over one side and then the other (like an omlette). Put on plate, seam side down.
  5. When ready to serve, drizzle with some of the chocolate sauce and top with additional fruit and whip cream.

Recipe Notes

Note:  To make the strawberry fan, just make thin slices in the strawberry almost to the stem but do not go all the way through. Using your fingers, spread out the strawberry to make a fan.
