When we go to expos and classes a lot of times we’ll bring along a display item that has different grains in glass jars with the grain in the bottom half and the ground version in the top half. It’s a great visual aid to show some of the things you can do with different grains. Well it never fails that someone asks “What can you do with rice flour?”. I never had a good answer for it since I’ve never actual used it. I know it can be used in gluten-free cooking but I do not know all the ins and outs of that. I figured you could make rice noodles out of it, and I looked into trying some recipes for that but gave up as it seemed a little tricky. HOWEVER, I can finally say that I found a way to use it that was easy and yummy!
I was searching around for rice noodle recipes and stumbled upon a crepe recipe using rice flour. It sounded very similar to my mom’s crepe recipe so I just decided to use hers and swap out regular flour for rice flour. It worked, it was delicious, and my kids snarfed them up as soon as they got home from school. Yay!
Rice Flour Crepes
1 c. rice flour (about 3/4 white rice ground up)
1 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. melted butter
Instructions: Grind your rice into rice flour. (I used my WonderMill Electric Mill on the finest setting). Mix all ingredients until smooth. Pour into a hot non-stick skillet about 1/4 cup of batter at a time. Turn the skillet around to let the batter spread out into a thin circle. Cook about 30 seconds on each side. Server with jam, syrup, fruit, honey, nutella, powdered sugar … whatever your heart desires. YUM!
