Crepes…

Sometimes a fluffy pancake is lovely but there is times when you want a traditional French crepe. It took me a while to find a recipe free from gluten and dairy and in the end I ended up tweaking a couple of recipes to find the perfect one.

You can adapt this recipe to suit any topping, sweet or savoury. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

Recipe 

  • 2 tablespoons gluten free plain flour (we use doves farm).
  • 3 tablespoons dairy free milk (we use almond or coconut milk).
  • 3 large eggs.
  • Either 1/2 teaspoon salt for savoury crepes or 1/2 teaspoon sugar for sweet crepes.
  • Something to grease your pan. We use the cooking mist spray from Kirkland signature. You can find this at Costco.

Method 

  1. Crack the eggs into a jug and whisk with a fork.
  2. Add the milk and flour and mix thoroughly until there are no lumps and the batter is completely smooth.
  3. Add salt or sugar and mix through.
  4. Heat your pan over a medium heat until the pan is hot.
  5. Pour in 1/4 of the mixture and swirl the pan to distribute into a thin layer.
  6. Cook for 30-60 seconds or until the pancake becomes “unstuck” and easy to flip. Cook for a further 30-60 seconds.
  7. Serve and top with toppings of choice.

This recipe makes enough for 4 8 inch pancakes and takes less than 10 minutes to make. Perfect for a lazy morning “treat” breakfast or as a snack any time of the day.

Toppings 

These are some of the toppings we have tried and loved!

  • Lemon juice and sugar
  • Banana and honey
  • Fresh berries and dairy free natural yogurt
  • Dairy free chocolate spread
  • Tomatoes and avocado
  • Ham and dairy free cheese
  • Salmon and asparagus.

The crepes are quite sturdy and this makes them good to roll or use as a wrap.
