In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, turning to coat it on all sides so that it’s well-saturated with the custard.

Shake off any excess and place the coated bread on a large plate or baking dish. Repeat the dipping process with the remaining pieces of bread.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, place several of the coated sticks in a single layer in the pan.  Cook until golden brown on one side then flip and continue cooking until the sticks are golden brown and slightly crisped on all edges.

Serve immediately with maple syrup for dipping and fresh fruit

Buon Appetito

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
