This week I embarked on a mission to develop as many delicious crêpe recipes as I could possibly come up with. The result was eight of them, all amazingly scrumptious, including five savory and three sweet. You don’t need any special equipment, just a blender and a frying pan, and they’re so easy to make! We created all of these recipes, prepared them, and taste tasted every single one. It was a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it!

 

The first crêpe I made was a Strawberry Banana Nutella crêpe, a twist on a classic, which you can find here. Here are the next seven…please try and enjoy!

 

For all of these crêpes, please see the recipe for the batter here.

Put 2 large handfuls of fresh spinach on top and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Spread over crêpe, with freshly grated Locatelli cheese on top. Fold crêpe in half twice, into a triangle, and serve warm.
