I, on the other hand, spend my money on food. So, when I discovered a place tantalizingly called The Cream and Crepe Cafe, I had to go. As soon as a forkful of their chocolate mousse-filled crepe hit my tongue, I was smitten. Smitten enough to end up owning an actual crepe pan.
Crepes have been in my cooking repertoire for quite some time, then. Almost twelve years to be exact. My go-to recipe is actually an old Martha Stewart recipe, Dessert Crepes. Vanilla and chocolate are both lovely!
Thanks to Lyndsey over at Tiny Skillet, though, I now have a new favorite crepe recipe. I chose the Crepes with Sauteed Bananas and Chocolate and followed it almost to a T. Only I didn't have chocolate. I did have Nutella, though. So, instead of melted chocolate, I globbed some of that onto my crepes and caramelized bananas. Can you tell that I got a bit carried away? Is there such a thing as too much Nutella?
These were fabulous! Superb! Divine! Yum!
And, amazingly, if you are the kind of person who stocks Nutella in your pantry, you probably don't even need to go to the store to make this dessert. Right. Now.
