So for valentine's day this year I found a recipe for red velvet crepes, tried them, and hated them. They were tough and quite ordinary. So a few days later I decided to make my crepe recipe but tint them red with a little food colouring, just for fun.
I also came up with this idea of making a crepe stack filled with Nutella mixed with cream and adding sliced bananas. I had no idea if it would be good, but I figure it was worth trying.
Once set in the refrigerator this is so good, absolutely delicious. I made this for my family first, they loved it, then I made normal crepes (not red ones) for guests, and they all loved them to.
Once you get the hang of making crepes, you will never use a recipe again. As you can see my stacks are quite high, the recipe will not give you that many, but as my family love them so much, I always make extra.
You will find a link to my crepe recipe below, you will need around 10 crepes. If you are new to crepe making, and some don't work, just make an extra batch. If some have a few holes in them, it doesn't matter. When you have made the crepes, you come back here and follow the recipe.
Find how I make them at
300ml thickened cream, whipped
1/2 cup nutella
Make the crepes following my recipe or use your own recipe, allow to cool completely.
To assemble the stack: Place a crepe on a serving plate, spread with a thin coating of the nutella cream, top with another crepe, spread with another thin layer of nutella cream, this time place some sliced banana on top of the cream, not to completely cover the crepe, scattered the banana about.
Repeat this process of crepe, nutella cream, crepe, nutella cream, then banana, until all your crepes are used up. Bananas get added to every second crepe layer, and as you scatter the banana each time, make sure you add bananas to hollow bits so the crepe stack stays level.
Cover with cling film, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, overnight is good also.
Thirty minutes before serving take it out of the refrigerator to allow the crepes to soften a little. Just before serving, decorate with some more sliced bananas if you like, and a dusting of icing sugar.
