I truly do love all things pumpkin, and the other day when my son asked me if we could have crepes, I decided to try my hand at making them gluten free pumpkin crepes. I’m not sure how that happened. All things started out normal, then the next thing I know, I’m reaching for my jar of pumpkin puree! However, they were a huge success and everyone’s crepe cravings has been filled. These would be really great with some whipped cream in them, but we kept things simple and just served them with some maple syrup.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour mix (see note)
- 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
- 1 1/2 cups milk (or water for dairy-free)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a small bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
In a larger bowl, combine all wet ingredients.
Combine the wet & dry ingredients, whisking until nearly smooth (a few lumps are alright).
In a hot frying pan (about medium heat) pour approximately 3/4 cup of batter in the middle of the pan. Lift the pan & turn it to distribute the batter over the entire pan. You want your batter to cover the entire bottom of the frying pan when you are done.
Once there are little holes and air bubbles forming in the top of your pancake, using a spatula, carefully flip the crepe to brown the other side. This does not take long to cook, because they are so thin.
You can top with your favorite syrup, fresh fruit, sprinkle with sugar, or any other multitude of toppings. Roll up and enjoy!
