Easy Rice Flour Crepes Recipe

Easy Gluten Free Crepes with Rice Flour

I learned to make crepes using Julia Child’s recipe from the Mastering the Art of French Cooking where you had to prepare the batter in a blender and refrigerate it overnight.

These days I make gluten free crepes using white rice flour.

These easy rice flour crepes are just as delicious as a classic crepes recipe. That's because I've added a few special ingredients.

First, I sweeten it by adding a little orange liqueur. But you could add a tablespoon or two of orange juice to this gluten free crepes recipe instead if you don’t have orange liqueur on hand.

Or you could try your favorite natural, no calorie sweetener like Swerve Sweetener, stevia or monk fruit sweetener would work.

If calories aren’t an issue, you could try molasses, honey or maple syrup in this rice flour crepes recipe.
