Sweet Reward Chocolate Crepes

Every once in awhile I decide to make crepes.  They don’t always turn out the way they should, but I have gotten better with them over the years.  The only frustrating part is trying to make enough of them to serve several people all at the same time.  This recipe tells you how to keep them warm, but I generally serve them one plate at a time.  This recipe calls for Nutella, which I don’t like, so I mix a little chocolate powder with almond butter instead.  Or I will use apple butter.  Apple butter with the cinnamon and cocoa powder works for me!


In a medium bowl, whisk 2 eggs, one cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1/2 cup flour, one tablespoon oil, 2 teaspoons sugar, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a pinch of ground allspice (or cinnamon).  Refrigerate 20 minutes.  Stir.

Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.  With a ladle or 1/4 cup measure, add 2 tablespoons batter to skillet.  Tilt and rotate pan to coat.  Cook 30 seconds or until crepe is browned on bottom and edges are dry.  Lift with a silicone spatula and flip over.  Cook 5 seconds, then transfer to a sheet of wax paper.  Repeat with remaining batter, stacking crepes with wax paper in between.  Spread with Nutella and scatter sliced strawberries on top.  Fold, then dust with confectioners sugar and cocoa powder.
