Epic Fails: Soggy Crepes And Horrible Waffles
0

9 posts in this topic

Two epic fails this week. First I made crepes using Pamela's pancake mix. I followed the directions. They seemed easy to make and tasted fine but they were soggy. They were fully cooked but had a rubbery, scrambled egg kind of feel to them. I froze the extras and reheated one today on a skillet and still soggy. Anyone have a good and easy crepe recipe?

The other fail was buckwheat waffles. I had buckwheat flour on hand and found a recipe online at The Daily Dietribe. She tested a ton of different combos and is supposed to have a great recipe. I used mostly buckwheat with about 1/5 all purpose. Used potato starch for the starch as recommended. They cooked up ok but tasted like dirt. I've had buckwheat pancakes and buckwheat crepes before so I know it has a stronger, earthier flavor, but really, these were horrible. My kids wouldn't eat them and hubby and I choked them down. So, I also need a good waffle recipe or else I'm going to have to live on Vans.

I have a great Belgian waffle recipe that hubs & I both love.

1 1/3 cups of Bisquick gluten-free pancake & baking mix

1 1/4 cups of milk

3 Tblsp. of canola oil (or oil of your choice)

2 eggs, separated

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tblsp. sugar

Put the Bisquick pancake mix in 1 bowl. In a second bowl use a wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks & sugar until sugar is completely dissolved & eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, milk & oil to the egg yolk mixture & whisk or mix well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the Bisquick & whisk until blended. In a third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not over mix! Pour the batter into prepared waffle maker.

You can also mash a ripe banana & add it to the mixture before folding in the egg whites. It will make the waffles a little heavier & you will need to cook them slightly longer but they are delicious!

I came up with this recipe by combing the regular waffle recipe on the Bisquick box with a Classic Belgian Waffle recipe by Emeril Lagasse.

Many thanks. This sounds much easier than trying to figure out my own flour mix.

YVW birdie! We also use the Bisquick for pancakes following the recipe on the box & we swear they are better than gluten pancakes & I'm a pancake freak. Also mash bananas in that too sometimes (we like bananas- can ya tell?). I make the pancakes just slightly thicker than the recipe though but only a tiny bit.

I haven't tried to do any yet that were buckwheat type or anything.

I posted my recipe for buckwheat pancakes on a thread about flapjacks. (Apparently flapjacks outside of the U.S. aren't the same thing as what we call flapjacks, i.e. pancakes...) My recipe is message 6 -- and I'd tried using a larger amount of buckwheat in a previous attempt, but it was too strong for me. This amount works I think... and if you use a bit less moisture it should work for waffles too, I'd think?

I use King Arthur and Bisquick for waffles and pancakes and they cook up perfect.Perhaps you could substitute some buckwheat flour for some of the packaged pre-mix. My gluten eating husband loves my King Arthur pancakes and prefers to eat my pancakes rather than his wheat ones.

On this same thread as mentioned above,

at message #8, I have a recipe for gluten free, egg free, dairy free buckwheat pancakes that works REALLY well. The same proportions of 1/3 each buckwheat, potato, and bean flours works well in other recipes, too.

I don't care for waffles but this recipe is amazing:

http://www.food.com/recipe/banana-nut-waffles-gluten-free-and-vegan-312803

I'm not gluten-free but my adult daughters are and we all love these waffles and my DH too.

I've made them with blueberries, huckleberries, mini chocolate chips and without nuts.

I use less milk, about 1 1/2 cups, and usually syrup for the honey.

Just keep a frozen ripe banana in the freezer, thaw in warm water and squish out of the peel. These are good plain right out of the toaster and eat in the car.

This Tuscan Chestnut Crepes with Ricotta recipe is excellent and very easy.

http://www.food52.com/recipes/12289_tuscan_chestnut_crepes_with_ricotta_necci

This one is my favourite - the crepes are light and almost lacy, just as they should be. Millet Chestnut Crepes: http://www.latartinegourmande.com/2011/02/03/chandeleur-gluten-free-crepes/

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
