Recipe: Gluten-Free Crêpes with Rice Flour
Before You Start
Difficulty Rating: Medium
- Liquid measuring cup and whisk or fork
- Non-stick pan and soft spatula
I personally prefer using glutinous rice flour because it gives a nicer texture and consistency. It's called "glutinous" due to its stickiness, but is absolutely celiac-friendly.
You can use 1/2 cup of cornstarch instead of the rice flour and 3/4 cup of milk instead of a full cup.
1 cup rice flour
¼ tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tbsp oil
Butter to melt in pan for flavour
You will need to re-mix batter between each pouring otherwise it will settle.

For information on kitchen safety when cooking with children, read Setting Kitchen Rules.
- Combine ingredients in liquid measuring cup and mix well.
- Heat pan to medium temperature.
- Melt butter in the pan, using just enough to coat it. Be careful not to scorch the butter.
- Pour batter from liquid measuring cup into middle of hot pan and give a swirl to spread it evenly.
- When the air bubbles have popped and the edges of crêpe start to curl up, carefully flip crêpe over.
- Let it cook for another minute and remove from pan.
- On a plate, fill half of the crêpe with your choice of goodies (See suggestions below).
- Roll crêpe from filling side and enjoy!
These crêpes are a wonderful gluten-free substitute for bread, flat-bread or pitas. Use them to make healthy wraps with your favourite ingredients.
