CREPES – gluten free
I love crepes. I thought today I would suprise Taylor when she comes home for lunch with some yummy chocolate crepes. This is my first time attempting them gluten free. You can fill these with your favorite ingredients, from sweet to savory. I am going for dessert. SO I am just sprinkling semisweet chocolate chips inside and top them with my homemade whipped cream. They turned out amazing. I am adding this to my regular repeat recipes. They would be even better with fresh strawberries added, but I didn’t have any. Here is the process I used:
3/4-1cup cup milk
2 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup (2 oz or 56.7g) gluten free flour ( i use better batter, if your flour doesn’t include xanthan gum add 1 tsp xanthan gum)
In a mixer add all ingredients except flour and blend well for 2 minutes.
Add the flour to the mixer and mix until just blended, about 30 seconds.
In a nonstick pan, add half cup of crepes, remove pan from heat and swirl it, so the batter coats the bottom of the pan. If you get holes in the crepe, pour small amount from the batter to cover the holes.
The batter will quickly dry, and the moment it looses its shine, turn it over. (i added chocolate chips the second I turned it over.
When crepe has finished cooking, gently slide it out onto a plate.
I rolled mine up and topped with my homemade whipped cream.
