Gluten-Free Crépes with Yoghurt and Orange Marmalade

Gluten-Free Crepes

I’ve mentioned this in the past, my partner has a gluten sensitivity. She travels a fair amount for business. Finding places that have gluten-free options other than salads and such can be a bit of a struggle on the road. She mentioned that in the Burlington Vermont Airport, there’s a place called Skinny Pancake and they make gluten-free crépes. So, I said, “Hey, I can make gluten-free crépes.” I served them up with store bought greek yoghurt and orange marmalade. I heated the marmalade and added 1 tsp of lemon juice to dilute it. I filled the crépes with 1 TBS of yoghurt and 1 tsp of marmalade. Then I added a dollop of yoghurt to the top and drizzled on more marmalade.

The batter doesn’t have any sugar in it so you can use it for both sweet and savory fillings.

Gluten-Free Crepes
4 TBS Coconut Flour
4 TBS Rice Flour
8 TBS Corn Starch/Corn Flour
½ stick melted butter plus a few teaspoons to coat the pan.
1 egg
¾ cup milk

Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, you can also toss everything into a blender and whiz. The batter should be the consistency of half and half. If its too thick add more milk, too thin add a teaspoon of corn starch at a time until it thickens up.

Heat an 8” non stick skillet to medium high, coat the pan with some of the melted butter then wipe out the excess with a paper towel. Ladle the batter into the non-stick pan, and rotate the pan so that a thin layer of batter coats the bottom of the pan. Cook until the batter starts to dry around the edges and pulls away from the ban. Flip the crepe, to cook the inside, this usually takes about a minute.

Turn the cooked crepe out onto lightly buttered plate.

If I’m trying to make crepes for a large number of people, than I’ll make up the crepes and put them into a 250ºF oven to keep them warm. Once I’ve made all the crepes, then I’ll fill them up and serve.
