GF Vanilla Crepe Cake

vanilla crepe cakeWhile the not-too-sweet breakfast muffins make me happy waking up hungry in the morning, I crave for something rich and decedent once in a while. This crepe cake is not only gluten-free and dairy-free, great if you have food sensitivities, but also deliciously light in texture by using brown rice flour. I insist healthy version doesn’t mean it sacrifices the flavour. A hint of cinnamon, saltiness and sweetness from salted caramel is heavenly. So I call this the glory of sweet breakfast cake 🙂 The cake is better to be pre-made and chilled in the fridge before serving, though you can also serve warm straight away. Just roll them up or fold twice like you would serve crepes. You can also see my other crepe recipes here and here.

Ingredients (makes one serve as picture shown)

1 egg
100g brown rice flour
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
2/3 cup almond milk
a pinch of sea salt
coconut oil for making crepes
salted caramel for filling
cinnamon powder for dusting

Lightly beat egg with a whisk and then add all other ingredients. Set aside for 10-20 minutes. Mixture should be fairly runny. Add a bit of almond milk if too thick. Heat a crepe pan or non-stick frying pan over low-medium heat. Add a dollop of coconut oil into a pan and ladle a crepe batter into the middle of the pan. Swirl the pan in a circular motion to spread the batter thin and evenly. It should take only a minute each side to cook. Repeat with the rest of the batter. I spread salted caramel between the layers and built the cake on a serving plate. (I used a jar of salted caramel that I bought from the farmer’s markets). Place in fridge for a couple of hours to set.vanilla crepe cake1
