Adapted crêpes recipe

So Rob, a member of BNI Dynamo as well asPC Support Group (waves!) recommended this recipe to use with wheat free flour, and only a few changes – half w/f flour half gram flour, and I think the measurement used for more butter was approximately ‘More, Loads more’.

So I made a batch and I’m in love. A cinch to throw together, and the best bit is it isn’t sweet, so I can sweeten it myself with sugar or jam (the lemon curd from Pipsqueak Preserves was NOM!) or use it for a savoury snack. I’ve just had one smeared with wholegrain mustard, ham and cheese, folded over and heated in the oven for 10 mins. AMAZING!Next I’ll be trying the batter to make Yorkshire Puddings, and will report back.

So far, its a keeper. Slightly different from a normal pancake batter, I think the inclusion of the gram flour really gives it a unique flavour and opens it up to more culinary uses!

Here is the adapted recipe, the original is linked above. I also ended doubling the original recipe, which is accounted for below.

Ingredients

70 gram(s) unsalted butter melted (plus more for frying)
150 gram(s) plain flour
150 gram(s) gram flour (I get mine from a local take away but most shops should stock it)
650 ml milk
2 medium egg(s)

Using a shallow pan, melt the butter and let cool.

Put the flour, milk and egg into a blender and whiz. Pour into a jug and stir in the melted butter. If you’re making the batter in advance, don’t put the melted butter into the mix until you’re read to starting cooking.

Heat a dry pan, and ladle 2–3 tablespoons of batter into the pan, quickly holding it up and swirling so that the batter forms a quick, thin pancake covering the base of the pan. This will cook in a minute so flip it and cook for 30 seconds to a minute on the other side, then remove to a plate.

Repeat until your batter is finished! I made around 15-16 of these bad boys, when the remaining ones were cool (you can bet your last dollah I had a few warm!) I wrapped them on the plate with cling film and they’re still yummy 2 days later.

If you try them, let me know how you get on!
