These Nutella Berry Crepes are sweet and delicious, stuffed with Nutella hazelnut spread and fresh berries. Using my tried and true method for perfect crepes, this recipe is bound to be a success. They’re the perfect choice when you’re looking for the best way to start off a special day.
I have been making crepes for as long as I can remember! Growing up in Europe, crepes were as popular to make for breakfast as pancakes are here in North America. It was our dessert of choice on the weekends! This is the type of recipe that I never had a recipe for, if you know what I mean. The method was passed down to me from my mom and I’ve always gone by look and feel.
That being said, it was not an easy feat to convert this brain child into a written recipe with exact amounts! Trial and error was employed, many crepes were eaten. Someone has to make these sacrifices, right? Well, I’m happy to report that through my thorough scientific testing I was able to recreate my mom’s perfect crepes with exact amounts for you to replicate.

How to make Nutella berry crepes
- Make the batter: Add all the crepe ingredients to a blender and blend well until completely smooth. Let the batter sit for 10-20 minutes.
- Cook the crepes: In the meantime heat a non stick frying pan over medium heat with a 1/2 tsp of butter. Pour 3/4 of a ladle (about 1/2 cup) of the crepe mixture into the pan and spread the mixture to cover the entire pan, by rotating the pan. Leave about 1 to 2 min per side then flip over. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Fill the crepes: Spread Nutella over the entire crepe and top with fresh strawberries, raspberries, or the berries of your choice, roll, and serve.
Tips for making perfect crepes
- Make sure your batter is blended well. While the best pancakes are made with a lumpy batter, the opposite it true for crepes.
- Get yourself a crepe pan. The walls are much lower making for easier flips, and the surface gives your perfectly even heat.
- Use a consistent measurement for even thickness of your crepes. I usually just use my ladle, or you can use 1/2 cup measuring cup.
- Keep an eye on the heat. You may need to adjust it up or down slightly as the crepes cook.
- Flip the crepe at the right time. Wait until the surface is no longer glossy and the edges begin to brown.
What else can I put in my crepes?
When I make crepes, I like to provide a spread on the table including all sorts of fillings, both sweet and savory, to satisfy anyone’s cravings. Each crepe you enjoy can be a different combination! Here are some tried and true favorites:
|Bananas, fresh or caramelized||Scrambled eggs|
|Chopped nuts||Onion/ leeks|
|Apple pie filling||Mushrooms|
|Whipped Cream||Ground meats|
See what I mean? While made with such a simple batter, the endless list of fillings will make each crepe experience brand new.
Storing leftover Nutella berry crepes
If you’ve ended up with a big stack of crepes but there’s some batter left in the blender, you can keep it in the blender covered with the lid or transfer it to an airtight container. It’s best to use the batter up within 24 hours, but you can also store crepe batter in the freezer up to 3 months. Let it thaw overnight in the fridge and give it a quick buzz in the blender before using it.
Stack the crepes, with a sheet of parchment paper between each one, and let them fully cool to room temperature. Transfer the stack to a large sealable freezer bag and store in the fridge up to 5 days or in the freezer up to 2 months.
Crepes reheat best in the microwave at 5-10 second intervals. You can also reheat them in a dry skillet over medium-high heat for a few seconds per size. If your crepes are frozen, let them thaw fully in the fridge before reheating.
