Did you know that today is free pancake day at Ihop?
Well, I guess if you didnt, now you do! Hmm. I’ll be honest I’ve never been a real fan of Ihop pancakes those small stale tasting pancakes dont rock my boat the same way my own nutella, strawberry and banana crepes do, call me biased because I guess I am but at least I’m honest!
This morning I decided that instead of going to Ihop I would make my own crepes.
Not sure if you guys have ever heard of crepes but they are these thin French pancakes that you can pretty much fill with just about any concoction of things that you like.
Todays post is going to be a little short as I try to buy some stuff online to bake some super cute things this month.
Heres the recipe to [the crepes]
YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 Pint strawberries
- 3 Large bananas
- 4 oz semisweet chocolate squares
- 1 cup nutella Hazelnut spread.
For the filling dice up one pint of strawberries and 3 whole bananas. In a small microwaveable bowl put nutella in microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Smear the nutella on the cooked crepe and then place fruit inside of cooked crepe and roll up
for the chocolate I used semisweet bakers chocolate cooked on a double boiler–in case you didnt know the best way to melt chocolate is in a double boiler meaning taking a pot of water and letting it boil and placing a metal bowl on top of the pot so it sits right over the water and place the chocolate in the top bowl so that it can melt without burning —then you can use a spoon and drizzle it over the cooked crepes.
