First of all, this is my first post EVER! So, I’m pretty excited to share this. Crepes have been a favorite tradition in my family- pretty much my whole life. When I went gluten free in 2009, I wasn’t willing to give up my beloved special occasion breakfast so I created my own recipe! I have made these for several people both GF and gluten eaters and everyone has enjoyed them. Also, don’t let the title “gluten free’ scare you off- they still taste amazing!
Secondly, in my many years of GF cooking I have tried every flour, baking mix known to man to substitute good ole all-purpose flour. This GF flour here is the winner! It is the best one I’ve ever used in all my experimenting with GF baking. I never usually read past this part on a recipe because I’m lazy and don’t like to read, but if you aren’t like me (hopefully) keep reading I have good tips to make awesome crepes!
You don’t NEED a stand up mixer for this, but it definitely makes your life easier! I love, love, love my KitchenAid. My Mom would argue that her Bosch is better but I respectfully disagree. Supplies you DO need however, are an electric mixer, 12 inch non-stick pan and a sifter.
*this is a single batch which makes about 6 crepes, it’s super easy to double or triple according to how many guests you have.
1 1/2 cup gluten free baking mix
1/2 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup Truvia)
1/2 tsp. salt (maybe use pink salt, get it?!)
2 cups almond milk (you can use regular milk if you’d like)
Turn oven on to warm and put a large plate inside. In a small bowl sift together flour, sugar and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl add milk and eggs. Beat on medium speed for a minute or until combined. Then, slowly mix in dry ingredients. Beat on high for 1 minute and then make sure to get your 12 inch pan ready! (medium heat) Once your pan is ready, coat with cooking spray. Pick it up and use a ladle to add a scoop of batter to the pan. Immediately roll batter around the pan until the bottom is coated. Loosen edges with a spatula. When the crepe starts to rise or bubble, flip over and cook for the same amount of time on the other side or until lightly browned. Add to warm plate in oven and keep going!
When you are ready to eat, butter your crepe and enjoy with fresh fruit and whipped cream, cinnamon and sugar, or your favorite spread.
