In the Kamau house, birthday breakfasts are a big deal. I mean a BIG DEAL. It’s really one of the only traditions my family has. Birthday breakfasts can’t be just ordinary. They have to be huge, unique, and specifically tailored for the special person. Needless to say, eventually ideas start running low (even for idea-machine Bailey!). Thankfully, the last birthday breakfast we made was a pretty obvious choice! On May 12, it was Josiah’s 10th birthday. Josiah loves Nutella. Actually, I think “is addicted to” would be a better expression. Lately, we have not been purchasing any Nutella, but for Josiah’s special day, an exception had to be made.
Our ingenious idea was Nutella Banana Crepes (via Pinterest of course). At first, my mom was a little daunted by making homemade crepes. Thank God for the Internet! We found this awesome recipe for easy crepes. Besides the fact that the batter had to sit in the fridge for an 1 hour, it’s also very fast to make! I hope this quick, simple recipe allows you to feel freer trying something considered complicated and sophisticated but really super easy and delicious!
Homemade Crepes Serves 8
1 cup water
