  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar optional but recommended
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter + extra for cooking


  • In a large mixing bowl stir together the flour and salt, set aside.
  • In another medium bowl whisk together the eggs and milk, plus sugar if using. Whisk well.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture, a quarter at a time, whisking together after each addition until smooth.
  • Add the melted butter and stir until combined.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Place a medium non-stick frying pan or crepe pan over medium heat.
  • Using a kitchen brush, brush the pan with melted butter and pour in about a ¼ cup of crepe batter.
  • Tip the pan around to spread the batter evenly and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute, or until the top has set, then flip the crepe using a spatula or your hands, and cook for 30 seconds more.
  • Serve the crepes filled with Nutella and berries on the side.
