Gluten-Free Dairy-Free (GFCF) Delicious Crepes (and a Regular Recipe too ;)

My aunt and uncle gave me a crepe maker they were no longer using.  Of course, I HAD to try it out ASAP.  I am addicted to kitchen appliances, so I was very excited for my new toy!  I modified the recipe (found in the "Tibos Crepes from around the world" book) to fit our dietary needs.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but man, they were yummy!!   Here's the recipe and photos:

Ingredients (makes 15 crepes)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon buckwheat flour (I used ground flax seeds, not flour)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or oil (I used olive)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (make sure to use gluten-free)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (for gluten-free, I used 1/3 cup tapioca flour (gives it a good consistency), 1/2 sorghum flour, and 1 cup brown rice flour.  You could use any gluten free flour blend you like, though)
  • 2 1/4 cups low-fat milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
  • Skip this if you are making regular, but use this if you are doing gluten-free......  1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (not sure why I use this, but if I don't, things don't turn out right, and if I do, they do, so I use it!!)
  • Skip this if you are making regular, but use this if you are doing gluten-free...... 1 teaspoon xanathan gum
  • Fillings
In a bowl mix together the sugar, buckwheat flour (or ground flax seeds), melted butter or oil, water, salt, vanilla, and eggs.  Then, alternate adding the flour and milk, mixing well after each addition.

Follow your crepe maker directions for spreading and turning the crepes.  Cook each side for about 1 minute.

Fillings are fun, and you can vary your crepes a lot by changing it up.  We like powdered sugar, peanut butter (well, cashew butter) and jelly (these are GREAT to make in advance and put in the fridge to grab on the go or for a fast lunch), egg with veggies (cheese would be yummy too if you can eat it), honey, fruit, jelly, and so on.  Enjoy!

Not sure why this photo looks green in the middle.  It wasn't. Maybe it's steam.
