Basic crepe recipe
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp sifted coconut flour
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- coconut oil for frying
For the crepes, whisk together the egg, coconut oil, almond milk and salt. Add coconut flour and baking powder and stir in thoroughly until smooth and no lumps remain.
Pour a quarter of the batter into a hot oiled pan and swirl to spread the mixture so that it covers the bottom of pan with a thin layer.
Cook until edges are bubbly and cooked, and bottom is lightly browned. Use a spatula under the crepe and flip to the other side to cook, avoid doing this too early as the more cooked the first side is, the easier it should flip. Remove from pan and let cool slightly on paper-towel lined plate.
Cover and decorate with all sorts of tasty ingredients; we cover ours with our Southernlands honey for a special sweet taste.
Perfect Pancakes recipe
To make those nice, thick pancakes, you’ll need to take a slightly different approach.
- 140g Plain Flour
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 0.5 tsp salt
- 2.5 tsp caster sugar
- 135 ml milk
- 1 large egg
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl. Whisk egg into milk jug, then gradually beat the milk mixture into your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar mix until nice and smooth.
Preheat small pan to medium heat using butter as oil. Pour some mixture into the pan until the base is covered. Cook until both sides are golden brown and serve straight away for the best taste.
