Nutella and banana crepes

During December i visited Antwerp, Belgium. It was Christmas  eve and i could see lots of celebration over the streets. It was rainy and moist day but a wonderful one, one thing that i couldn't ignore was the fragnance of gluwein(Hot red wine) and crepes being prepared in the stalls. Am not a great fan of alcohol, but when its gluwein with a slice of lemon in it i just cannot ignore it. The day i tasted crepes, since then i have been preparing crepes at home with nutella inside.
You can have sweet or savory crepes depending upon your taste. I mostly prepare the sweet one because of my two sweet tooth :-)
