Gluten-free crepes

Crepes are one the my family favorite.

This time I wanted to try a gluten free version and it was a success,my hubby did not notice the difference.

This crepes recipe is very versatile, it can be used for lasagna,cannelloni  or like I did today just for breakfast with some Nutella and jam.

 

Ingredients:

  •  300 ml milk
  •  2 eggs
  •  a pinch of salt
  •  100 grams corn starch
  •  a sprinkle of love

 

Method:

  • To make good crepes you will need the right tools.If you don’t have the crepes pan its ok,you just need a small fry pan not bigger then 8 inch other wise it will be difficult to flip them.Make sure that your pan is nonstick and while you are making the crepes it need to be greased. Also make sure to have a soup spoon and always put the same amount of batter in it.
  •  Mix the eggs with the whisk
  •  Add the corn starch and the salt and mix very well
  • Slowly add half of the milk and mix very well
  • Add the rest of the milk
  • Let it rest for 15 minutes
  • Grease your pan with a little bit of oil or butter, be careful to do not use too much oil or butter otherwise the crepes will be too  greasy.
  • Usually what I do put a small piece of butter or a teaspoon of oil in the pan and with the   paper towel  I spread it out.
  • when the pan is warm pour 1 spoon of batter in and try to move the pan a little so the crepes will be nice and round.
  • when the crepes start to come off of the board is ready to be flip,
    •  the other side will take just a minute to cook,remember to grease the pan after 5 crepes.
  •  I served mine with Nutella and jam you can also add fresh fruit,whipping cream whatever you like.
  •  Buon appetito

Breakfast for champion

This is my family idea of breakfast for champions:crepes with nutella.

We seriously loved them and its so easy to do.

With this recipe you can make sweet crepes and salty crepes stuffed with ham,prosciutto mozzarella and more.

Ingredients for 8 crepes:

125 grams of flour
2 eggs
300 ml milk

Method:

In a bowl put the flour and gently pour the milk stirring with a whisk.

In a separate bowl put the eggs and gently beat them.

After that you can add them to the other bowl with the flour and milk.

Whisk nicely for few minutes and put the bowl in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes cover with plastic wrap.

Get your crepes pan ready,melt some butter and pour some of the batter and cook few minutes for side.

When your crepes are ready you can add nutella,jam,philadelphia cheese,fruit or anything that you like.
Sometime i just sprinkle some sugar and lemon juice but today we had them with nutella and strawberry

Enjoy
