A favourite crepe option for many, our recipe is simple yet delicious - taking just 20 minutes to cook up. Plus many of the ingredients will already be tucked away in your fridge and cupboard ready to go. Serve up with a topping of your choice - strawberries, cream, extra hazelnuts, or all three.


  • Knob of butter
  • 125g plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 50ml water
  • 1tsp sunflower oil
  • 4tbsp Nutella
  • Chopped hazelnuts




  1. Place a pan over a medium heat and cut a piece from the knob of butter.
  2. Whilst the butter melts, whisk the flour, eggs, milk, water and oil together until the batter is smooth.
  3. Pour a thin layer of batter into the pan and cook on one side. Flip (carefully!) and cook the other side equally.
  4. In the meantime, warm the Nutella in a saucepan over a low heat until it becomes a good consistency for drizzling.
  5. Once each pancake is cooked evenly, drizzle the inside with Nutella, fold, add more Nutella to the top and scatter with a handful of chopped nuts.
  6. Serve the pancakes whilst they’re still hot.

Top tips for making pancakes with Nutella:

If you've got the time (and patience) allow the batter to rest for 15 before cooking. This will allow the wet ingredients to really soak into the flour for better texture.
