{Gluten-Free} Triple Berry Birthday Crêpes


It's been a bear of a week. But, on Wednesday, I needed to take a deep breath, slow down, and celebrate my Love! He turned 42 this week.


Thank goodness my Kitchen Elves are well-trained. They commandeered the breakfast menu, declaring that we were going to make birthday crêpes with three kinds of berries! We found fresh organic raspberries and blackberries...and I had just made fresh strawberry-tarragon jam last weekend. Done!


Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 C gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 C organic whole milk
  • dash of cardamom
  • splash of vanilla
  • butter, for cooking
  • For serving: fresh berries, jam, and unsweetened whipped cream


Procedure
Whisk all of the ingredients together until lump-free. Let sit for at least 20 minutes. Heat a large flat-bottom pan and rub the bottom with butter. Pour the batter in the middle of the pan and quickly make a tilting motion to distribute the batter all over the pan. The goal: have as thin a batter layer as possible.

Cook until the crêpes is a bit stiff and flip over, cooking for another minute The pancake should be lightly browned on both sides. Repeat till all the batter is used; I made 10 crêpes with the quantities listed.

Let everyone assemble their own crêpes. The birthday boy smeared his with strawberry jam, fresh berries, a huge dollop of whipped cream, and more berries on top!
