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

2 eggs

Butter to melt in pan for flavour


You will need to re-mix batter between each pouring otherwise it will settle.

Your Child(ren)’s Participation

  • Help make the batter;
  • Stir the batter before each pour;
  • Select the filling(s);
  • Fill the crêpe & roll.

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!

      My pleasure, tilsontitan! This recipe is a favourite of ours when we want to change up dinner-time. We use them to wrap chicken or beef strips, cheese and a bit of honey mustard, etc. - YUM! Glad to be a useful and delicious extension to your own hub :-)

      Flora - I had the same problem, so I started making them smaller and that helped. Apparently part of my problem was also the pan. I found that pan pictured above for $10 at Walmart and it made a HUGE difference. Now, I let my SO make them cuz he's got the knack for it ;-)

      I have never been able to make crepes that don't fall apart. I gave up on home made crepes-to eat them, someone else will have to make them.
