This 5-star dessert crepes recipe dressed up with a topping of your choice is almost too pretty to eat. The key word here is almost. How can anyone pass up a dessert crêpe just because it’s pretty? Ummmm, no one. One bite of this dessert crêpe and you will be in heaven. I give you permission to let your fork demolish the crêpes and stuff it in your mouth!
When we were in France last fall, it seemed like every corner had a vendor making crêpes. I literally gorged on nutella crêpes. They were just too delicious to pass up. My mouth would utterly drool at the thought of chocolate on a sweet pancake.
Fast forward to Christmas when my brother and his wife gifted us a crêpe maker! Forget a breakfast crêpe…I went straight for dessert. I’ve tried Nutella, ice cream, custard, fruit, whip cream, and just plain ole cream and none have disappointed me.
This 5-star Dessert Crêpes Recipe is incredibly delicious and simple to make (even for a beginner).
Fill the crêpes with either Nutella, fruit and whip cream, jam and fruit, custard, pudding, ice cream, etc. If you want to add a special something, sprinkle these warm crêpes with lemon and sugar or powdered sugar or a drizzle of chocolate sauce. The options are endless.
Crêpes may take a leeetle bit of practice but I’ve been told by many that it is simple enough for a beginner. Make sure you use a large, non-stick skilled lightly coated with cooking spray for ease of turning (it works better than oil or butter but I’ve had success with all). Spoon a small part of batter into the pan to make the crepes thin and not pancake like and quickly swirl it around the pan. Allow it to cook through until the edges are dry before flipping or you will have a torn apart crêpe.
