Civic Holiday

Monday August 5, Civic Holiday. Used to be Bank Holiday in the UK. That's just about what I have been doing today, taking a holiday. Not really done much of anything at all except a lot of sleeping. I was up at 7 and decided to grab another hour, turned out to be 9:18 when I woke up again!! Not only that, I slept some more this afternoon. I feel pretty well rested now.

I haven't seen any fresh, local raspberries yet, guess they are out there. This dessert is right up my street. Mind you, I am determined to avoid too many carbs at the moment.

Raspberry and Nutella Crèpes

  • crèpes
  • 8 tablespoons nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 1 cup raspberry sauce
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar

  1. Spread chocolate hazelnut spread across half of each crepe and raspberry sauce on the other half.
  2. Sprinkle with raspberries and fold the crèpes in half.
  3. Drizzle raspberry sauce onto the crepes to taste and sprinkle on some more raspberries.
  4. Place the confectioners sugar in a fine sieve, hold it over the crèpes and lightly tap the side to sprinkle the powdered sugar onto the crepes

Have a great day


  1. It's good to catch up on sleep. You probably needed it.

    1. I thought so too Liz, but last night I hardly slept at all. Horrid night.

  2. We're getting imported raspberries here at the moment. Not as good as fresh summer ones, of course, which I have fond memories of when I lived in England for a while. I have them with Greek yoghurt, flaked almonds and a drizzle of honey. Couldn't handle all the refined sugar in the Nutella in your recipe.

    1. Our fresh local ones are just coming in Helen. I love Nutella - sugar although I don't eat it often.
