Crepes with Nutella (Bleenchiki)

21 Dec

I promised my coworkers that i would make them crepes with nutella and fruit since we’re having a holiday breakfast tomorrow morning. my go to crepe recipe is one that my family has been preparing for years. another old school russian mother and/or grandmother/possibly even great grandmother recipe.


1 cup of flour
1 tbs sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup of water
3 eggs
3 tbs unsalted butter (melted)

Yields about 8-10 crepes. Depending on how thick you make them.


Mix all of the ingredients together until you get to the melted butter. Make sure to whisk the hot butter into the cold ingredients quickly so the milk doesnt curdle and the eggs dont get cooked. Whisk until the batter is smooth, with little airbubbles.

Take a ladle and fill it almost completely. Take a nonstick pan and place the mixture onto the pan, holding it up and moving the batter throughout so that it forms a circle. The first few wont be perfect! always prepare a second batch ๐Ÿ™‚

Once the sides of the crepe start to look ready to be picked up or flipped, flip the crepe to the best of your ability (it takes practice and free hand.. and burning your fingers a bit!) to the other side and let the other side get all nice and toasty. Finally, transfer to a plate and get ready to slather it with yummy Nutella or the topping of your choice.

So easy, and delicious. I highly. recommend.

Happy Holidays!

    Ohhh, YUM!! I’ve been thinking a lot about making crepes the past few weeks, as I’m traveling to Paris in April. My mom used to make them sometimes on Christmas morning when I was a kid. I’ll have to try them soon! I’ll probably be making crepes with orange sauce ๐Ÿ™‚
