Nutella Crepes Recipe

These Nutella Crepes are perfect for brunch this weekend (or even dessert)! Homemade crepes filled with a delicious Nutella cream cheese cream and sliced bananas.  SO good. 

If you’re looking for a really special brunch recipe that everyone will love, these Nutella Crepes are a delicious option!  The filling in the crepes is a light and fluffy Nutella cream cheese whip that pairs perfectly with sliced bananas. Make it extra decadent with a topping of whipped cream and Nutella drizzle.

Is it Breakfast or Dessert?

Now that is the question. Honestly, these crepes are wonderful for breakfast but they would be equally delicious served for dessert.  I do prefer to serve them for breakfast because they take a bit of work to make (they’re not hard, don’t be afraid!), and after serving and eating dinner, I don’t feel like making crepes.  And really, a little Nutella at breakfast never hurt anyone 😉

The Nutella Cream is a Must-Make!

These crepes are filled with a light, fluffy and flavourful Nutella-cream cheese-whipped cream filling that tastes a little like a Nutella cheesecake.  Seriously so good.  Especially with slices of fresh bananas.

These crepes are as delicious as you think!

Then we top these crepes off with a little dollop of extra whipped cream and a drizzle of melted Nutella. YES.

Do you fold or roll?

Crepes can be rolled or folded after they have been filled.  We do both, but I actually really like folding them into triangles…I find that the filling stays in better this way, but you do what you like!  When it comes to eating crepes, there are no rules!

Nutella Crepe Recipe Tips:

  • Recipe Timeline:
    • Make the crepe batter first because it has to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge before using it.
    • Then make the whipped cream.
    • Make the Nutella cream.
    • Slice the bananas.
    • Cook the crepes and assemble!
  • Make Ahead Tip: You can make the crepe batter a day ahead as well, as it keeps beautifully when refrigerated.
  • Whipping Cream: I whip together 500mL of whipping cream for this recipe.  I use 1 1/2 cups whipped to add to the Nutella cream, and use the rest for garnishing the crepes.
  • Yes, there is No Extra Sugar in the Whipped Cream:  I don’t add any extra sugar to the whipped cream, even for topping the crepes.  We find there is plenty of sweetness from the filling and the extra Nutella drizzle.
  • Nutella:  We used 1 – 375 g jar of Nutella for this recipe:  1/2 cup goes into the Nutella cream, and the rest goes to the drizzle.
  • Nutella Drizzle:  A delicious addition to these crepes is a Nutella drizzle.  Just heat up a small bowl in the microwave then use a spoon to drizzle it over your crepes.
  • Cream Cheese:  This recipe calls for 4 oz of cream cheese, so half of an 8 oz block.
  • Making the Crepes: Crepes can be eaten as they come off the pan, or you can stack them until the batter is gone, and you are ready to eat.  We think they’re best as they come off the pan because they’re still warm.
  • Folding the crepes:  We like to fold our finished crepes into triangles, but feel free to roll them as well!
  • Toppings:  Add sliced bananas and/or your favourite berries.

Nutella Crepes Recipe


  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 15 - 20 crepes 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Crepes:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • pinch salt

Nutella Cream:

  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 4 oz of cream cheese (1/2 of an 8 oz block)
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream

Toppings:

  • whipped cream
  • sliced bananas (we used 6 for our crepes)
  • extra Nutella

Instructions

Crepes:

  1. Make the crepe batter first as it has to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.  (Then while it’s resting in the fridge, make the Nutella cream.)
  2. Using a blender (I like to use a hand blender), combine all of the above crepe ingredients until smooth.
  3. Then cover the batter and put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Whipped Cream:

  1. Now make the whipped cream.  I whip together 500mL of whipping cream for this recipe.  I use 1 1/2 cups for the Nutella cream, and I use the rest for topping the crepes.

Nutella Cream:

  1. For the Nutella cream, use a mixer to cream together the Nutella and cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Then add 1 1/2 cups of the whipped cream and mix well.  Set aside.

Putting the crepes together:

  1. When you are ready to cook the crepes, preheat your pan to low-medium heat, and coat it with butter.
  2. Stir your batter, and pour about 2-3 tbsp into the pan. Then lift the pan off the burner, tilting and rotating it so the batter forms a thin circle.
  3. Cook until the top is set, then flip.
  4. NOTE: Crepes can be eaten as they come off the pan, or you can stack them until the batter is gone, and you are ready to eat.  We think they’re best as they come off the pan because they’re still warm.
  5. Once the crepe is cooked, fill each crepe with 2 – 3 heaping tablespoons of the Nutella cream, and some of the sliced bananas.
  6. Fold the crepe in half, then in half again to form the triangles you see in my pictures.
  7. Add a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of Nutella.
  8. Enjoy!
