Recipe: Gluten-free Sourdough Crepes

These crepes are a great way to use “discarded” gluten-free sourdough starter. Set your starter to be fed first thing in the morning and wow your family with this recipe for tender, gluten-free crepes that can be filled with sweet or savory fillings.



  1. Combine the gluten-free sourdough starter, eggs, melted butter, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk well to completely combine.
  2. Preheat a 10 inch cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Once hot, add a small sliver of butter to the pan and allow to melt. Ladle approximately 1/3 cup of batter into the pan, or enough to thinly coat the bottom of the pan.
  3. Using a hot pad or oven glove, immediately swirl the pan to allow the batter to evenly spread into a circular shape.
  4. Cook crepe for 2 minutes on the first side and then carefully flip. Cook an additional 30-60 seconds or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer crepe to a platter and repeat with remaining batter, being sure to butter pan between each crepe.

Serve crepes with fresh ricotta cheese, berries, jam, or honey. For a savory filling, fold herbs and garlic into fresh goat cheese and top with sautéed mushrooms.
