Nutella Sweet Crepes

Alessandro Clemente

Both Nutells and Crepes arise sentiments of Europe for most Americans. Americans don’t generally have access to either of these two pieces very often and it is usually a treat while in Europe to enjoy a creamy Nutella filled crepe.

The taste and texture of a crepe can hardly be described. Imagine a pancake but extremely thin and without the doughiness of American pancakes. All that you are left with is a thin lining of crepe that offers the full flavor of a less-sweet pancake. Crepes are filled with regional ingredients throughout Europe. In some places they are enjoyed fresh, with nothing mroe than powdered sugar. In other places they are filled with savory ingredients and serves for breakfast or lunch.
