It's less than a month until Valentine's Day and this crepe recipe is sure to win your heart. In this recipe, I feature popular fillings that you can't go wrong with—such as Nutella, strawberries, whipped cream, and brownies. Yum. Choose whatever your heart desires—I 10/10 recommend spreading melted Nutella on a warm crepe (if you don't have nut allergies). The ingredients are cheap and simple. You probably already have every ingredient for the crepe batter without even knowing it.

  • Step 5

    Measure in the melted butter or oil.
    #SpoonTip: Melt the butter quickly in the microwave

    milk, espresso, tea, coffee
  • Step 6

    Use an electric whisk to mix the batter ingredients together, or turn on the blender (if you're using a blender). Mix/blend until the batter is smooth. Unlike pancakes, it's important that you don't create a thin, lumpy crepe.
    #SpoonTip: Set for at least an hour, or overnight in the fridge for best results.

  • Step 7

    Using medium, or below medium heat, turn on the stove and heat oil in the pan.

  • Step 8

    Using a ladle, spoon the batter into the pan. You want a fairly large crepe with a diameter of around 15-20cm.

  • Step 9

    When the crepe has completely solidified on top, gently flip the crepe to the other side.
    #SpoonTip: After the edges have set, you can wiggle the pan or gently use your spatula to let air under the crepe so that it cooks evenly and doesn't rise in the middle.

  • Step 10

    Take the pan off the heat source and gently spread some Nutella onto the crepe. Then remove the crepe from the pan.

  • Step 11

    Add toppings to your crepe, fold and garnish. Then continue to make crepes until you're out of batter. This batch should make about 6 crepes.

  • Step 12

    Fold the crepes. I like to roll them, but you can also fold them into triangles, depending on how you place your toppings.

Though I thought I could at least ace one crepe in my first batch of batter, I wasn't happy with the color and thickness of the crepes. Practice is the key to making the perfect crepe. I encourage you to be adventurous with different fillings.
