Nutella-Banana Crepes

So, you remember that basic French crepe recipe a couple of weeks ago? It’s time to make use of it!

You can never go wrong with the combination of flavors in these Nutella-Banana Crepes. Each bite gives you the sweetness of Nutella paired with whipped cream and banana slices, and the crunchy texture of the nuts.

I could not remember anymore when I first tried a dessert crepe, but I would never forget how my then boyfriend (now husband), and I ate so much of these during college. If you were a Thomasian, you would know that there were lots of hole in the wall restaurants along Dapitan street. Esquinita is one of them and they used to sell a huge serving of mango crepe – stuffed with lots of mangoes, cream, and condensed milk. Our usual date routine was to eat at Almer’s (2 orders of pork sisig with egg and 4 cups of rice, please!) then go to Esquinita for dessert. You can definitely say that was start of our road to being overweight. 😉

I realized later on that those crepes were far from the authentic French crepes that I have tried in Paris but still, they were really good and not to mention very affordable. Unfortunately, they closed down even before we finished college.
