Gluten Free Strawberry Crepes

I apologize for not being on Blogger for so long. I had surgery, then college and work started...and I just haven't had time to update!

On the day of my surgery, I could not sleep at all. I had to leave for the hospital around 5:30am, and there I was puttering around the kitchen wondering what I could make. I couldn't eat it of course--surgeries have this crazy rule of no eating 8 hours before, but I thought I could treat my mom to a nice breakfast.

 Gluten Free Strawberry Cream Cheese Crepes

Servings: 4 crepes

  • 2/3 cup gluten free flour mix (either store bought, or you can use this one--look under ingredients)
  • 1/4 tsp. white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon in a bowl
  2. Make a well in the center of the flour and add milk, vanilla, and egg. Beat well to combine. It should have a smooth consistency
  3. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over med-high heat and pour batter into it. I used approximately 1/4 cup of mixture for each crepe--remember, you want them somewhat thin!
  4. Cook crepe for about 2 minutes, until bottom is light brown. Loosen it up, turn it over and cook other side.
I made up the filling as I went along, so the measurements of things will be an estimate.

  • 1/2 cup strawberries slices
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 confectioners sugar
  • a dash of lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 cup milk
  1. Melt down cream cheese.
  2. Add milk, vanilla, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl.
  3. Stir in the cream cheese.
  4. Spread on finished crepe and add strawberries
Enjoy! (=
