Sugar Free Crepes


Sugar free crepes

Yesterday I meet up with a gorgeous friend for a New Years catch up brekky. Imagine my delight when she gave me some home grown lemons as we said farewell.

I went home and told the hubby we were having lemon pancakes for breakfast, but he put in a request for crepes. He grew up in a Crotian household and crepes filled with ricotta and stewed apples are some of his fondest memories.

They were so easy to make and sugar free. These crepes could be eaten savoury or sweet. This is my choice with a small drizzle of The Sugar Breakup Organic Golden Rice Malt Syrup and fresh squeezed lemon.

  • Difficulty level: easy
  • Makes: 6 crepes
  • Baking Dish: non stick frypan
  • Prep time: 15 mins

1 cup plain flour
1 egg
1 cup milk
Pinch of salt

Putting it together

  1. Place flour, egg, milk and salt into a bowl and whisk until smooth. Let it sit for 5mins on the kitchen bench.
  2. Use medium heat to warm up the frypan. Then use 1/4 cup of the batter. As soon as you’ve put the batter into the pan move it around quickly to create a thin round crepe. Cook for a least 1 minute and then turn crepe, using a spatula and cook for another 30secs.
  3. You’ll create 6 crepes. Then fill with what ever you’d like and enjoy.

Cinnamon Buns


Cinnamon buns

Many years ago when I visited Singapore for the first time if you’d asked me one of the highlights of the trip, I would have told you my first ever cinnamon bun was near the top. I loved them that much.

I haven’t had a bun in years and for some reason this week I’ve been thinking about them. So I decided to see if I could create a refined sugar free version. Let’s just say that the recipe created turned out to be a great success!

Even in my sugar loaded days, I never liked the frosting. I thought it was too much, so in this photo it’s just the delicious bun. However I have included the recipe for the cream cheese frosting for that authentic finished flavour.

This recipe turned out to be absolutely delicious and I ate two within 30 minutes of them coming out of the oven. Thermomix instructions included.

Happy baking,
