  • Step 1

    Mix the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl in the order that they are listed (water, milk, eggs, butter, flour, sugar).

  • Step 2

    Divide the batter into 3 bowls.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 3

    Add about 5 drops of food coloring into one bowl and 10 drops of food coloring into another bowl. You should have 3 different colored batters now.

  • Step 4

    Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Rub butter on the bottom of the pan.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 5

    Pour batter from the bowl into the pan until the batter completely covers the bottom of the pan. Swirl the pan so that the batter evenly covers the surface.

  • Step 6

    Cook for about 30 seconds on each side or until both sides are golden brown.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 7

    Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the batter runs out. You should have around 20 crepes at the end.

  • Step 8

    Refrigerate the crepes for about 30 minutes so that the Nutella won't melt between the crepes. I divided my stack of crepes into 2 plates to cool the crepes faster.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 9

    Spread Nutella in between each layer of crepe and stack the crepes, forming the layers.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 10

    Refrigerate the crepe cake again so that the Nutella firms up and the cake is easier to cut.

    Sabrina Liu
  • Step 11

    Add strawberries to the top for decoration and enjoy!

I personally like eating this cake warm by putting it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then adding a scoop of ice cream.
