My husband and I love Nutella recipes and all banana desserts. This delicious recipe for crepes was inspired by our annual trip to the state fair in Raleigh in search of the latest deep fried recipes.
Crepes make an out-of-this-world fried dessert because they're tender and roll easily around your favorite crepe filling recipes.
In this recipe, crepes become the perfect package for warm, soft bananas and ooey-gooey Nutella.
Try it once and you'll be hooked for life!
Fill a medium skillet with canola oil to a depth of about two inches. Bring oil to a medium heat.
In the meantime, heat Nutella in a microwaveable bowl for about 15 seconds or until it softens enough to spread very easily (so as not to tear crepe). Lay first crepe on a flat working surface and spread 1 tbsp of Nutella on the inside of the crepe, within two inches of the edge. Lay 6 pieces of banana on top of the Nutella and roll crepe up burrito style. Repeat with remaining crepes.
To see if oil has come to temperature, drop a piece of crepe into the skillet. If it sizzles and bubbles appear, the oil is ready. Using tongs, lower each crepe very carefully into the oil, seam side down. After 2 minutes, using tongs, turn crepes over and fry the other side for about 2 more minutes.
Note: Do not turn crepes too quickly or crepe will still be soft and it may come apart. Do not wait too long or crepes will have absorbed too much oil and they will not turn easily.
Remove fried crepes from the oil and let rest on paper towels for one minute. Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings (1 crepe roll each)
