"I am not a fan of fruit fillings so I decided to use fresh strawberries and bananas. It was amazing! I spread nutella on the crepe and then put some strawberries and bananas and rolled it up. It was so delicious! Everybody loved it who I gave it to."

"I made this for a bunch of friends and everyone thought it was really great. I didn't have the extract and so I just left it out it was still good. This was my first crepes making experience and it was super easy!!"

"Instead of cinnamon, this is an excellent recipe for the use of a quarter teaspoon of ground cloves. Cloves makes an excellent compliment to peaches and cherries."
