My Miserable Crepe Failure


Just a few days ago, I decided "I feel like making dessert!" Now this is not a strange or new thing for me to say, its actually rather common. So I started going through my virtual list of recipes and ideas in my head. I came up with crepes. Now I don't think I have ever made crepes before but I was determined to try. I got the Gluten Free batter all ready (I used one of Pamela's crepe recipe recipes. click here to go to Pamela's home page) and started heating up my pan. What happened next, I'm very embarrassed about. The crepes did not flip and became large, layered pancakes (as the pictures show). They were not worthy of being called crepes. When I think of them I imagine a thin pancake with fresh juicy strawberries, whipped cream and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. All served up on a white plate at some fancy French restaurant. My crepes were... let's just say that they were the begining of a new creation called "the fat crepe" (in other words, a pancake). I had a few toppings in mind before I started making the crepes. I thought "wouldn't either, yogurt, or fruit, or even ice-cream taste good on these?!" So I kept my good attitude (or what was left of it) and finished making my fat clumpy crepes.
As you can see I topped them with maple syrup flavored yogurt and canned peaches. It was soooo good. I'm not usually the one to go for yogurt but with the crepe and peaches it was just so yummy.

Next time you make something that doesn't come out perfectly, improvise. I bet you could find a way to make it awesome like I did!

I'm sorry your crepes turned out as pancakes, but I'm sure they were delicious none the less.

Happy Holidays!
