These days, I’m certainly making and eating a lot of crepes. I tried eggless nutella crepes with banana slices today and totally enjoyed them. My mother normally makes crepes with whole wheat flour to make them healthier, but I was pleasantly delighted to make these crepes made with flour were just as tasty!

To make these crepes you only need a very few staple ingredients like sugar, milk, butter, etc. I’m sure you already have these ingredients sitting on your kitchen shelf , so all you have to do now is to pull them out and get cooking.
INGREDIENTS USED IN NUTELLA CREPES
Nutella is the star filling of these crepes. Its creamy hazelnut and chocolate goodness create a rich, indulgent center. Nutella provides the perfect balance of sweetness and nuttiness, turning each bite into a heavenly experience. Nutella’s widespread popularity and distinct flavor evoke a sense of comfort and nostalgia. Its inclusion in Nutella Crepes can evoke fond memories for many, adding an emotional dimension to the culinary experience.
- ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
The foundation of the crepe batter, all-purpose flour, provides structure and texture to the crepes. It acts as the primary dry ingredient, ensuring the perfect balance between lightness and substance. While crepes are known for their tender texture, the moderate protein content in all-purpose flour helps create a delicate gluten network. This network provides just enough structure to hold the crepes together while maintaining their thin and pliable nature.
Sugar sweetens the crepes, balancing the flavors and complementing the Nutella filling. It provides a touch of sweetness to the batter without being overwhelming, allowing the Nutella to shine as the star of the show.
- MILKMilk serves as the liquid component of the crepe batter, contributing to the smooth and pourable consistency. It also adds a subtle creaminess to the crepes, enhancing their overall texture.
Vegetable oil adds moisture to the crepe batter, preventing it from becoming too dry. It also aids in creating a smooth and silky texture, contributing to the overall tenderness of the crepes.
EQUIPMENTS USED FOR MAKING EGGLESS NUTELLA CREPES
The kind of equipment you use in the kitchen makes a huge difference to the end result! I would always recommend you to use quality gadgets and other equipment to make your cooking and baking game strong.
For Nutella crepes I have used stahl cast iron pan. It is so stylish and easy to use.
