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.

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/

    • My Celiac disease presented as yours did: anemia, unexplained weight loss, aches and pains (due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies from malabsorption), the abdominal burning (whether I ate or not), decreased appetite, itching, the works. Plus I had a mood like a gorgon, which wasn't helped by my friends telling me "how slender!" I looked. My bones were basically all that was holding me up. I've had the blood panel too, which has proven very informative. I had a follow-up celiac panel after I'd been on the diet for over a year and it showed the diet was working. I also went through an anger phase because my (now former) doc (who is also my dad's doc and knows he has celiac AND knows we're related...) just wrote me a prescription for antidepressants, whereas I might have been spared years of feeling crappy (my late 30s!) if he'd just ordered a CBC and found the anemia. I'm a woman and I feel like sometimes whatever you say to a doc (even female docs!), all they hear is "psych symptoms". It really made me mad. But I've always pooped like a champ so I didn't exactly have typical symptoms either. Then I thought about how long it took my poor dad to get diagnosed (decades), which was before there was all this awareness, and I feel grateful for the fact that it took comparatively far less time for me to get my diagnosis and start feeling better. Don't worry about not finding stuff you like to eat: since gluten-free has become "the new thing" there are so many choices and the price has come down considerably since my dad got diagnosed (over 12 years ago). If your doc confirms celiac, then you'll be back on the (albeit gluten-free!) mac and cheese in no time, this time actually absorbing some of the mac and cheesy goodness! Feel better and take care.
    • If you are worried about your glycemic levels, then you should test with a glucose meter.  I have diabetes (insulin resistance/TD2) and rice and potatoes spike me like crazy!  I might as well consume ice cream!  But if you do not have diabetes, no worries!  
    • Thanks to both of you for your replies. I wasn't so much concerned about the arsenic (although that is an additional consideration) as I was about the glycemic level. I don't bake enough to make blending my own flour blends worthwhile, so I will definitely check out the links you provided, Ennis_TX. So far I'm tolerating oats and my gastro doc says I can keep eating them as long as they're certified GT. I just looked at some crackers I have for hummus and noticed their main ingredient is rice. I should probably just eat the hummus with veggies!
    • I agree with Ennis.  It sounds like she is getting access to gluten way too often to expect healing.   I had some pretty severe patches of intestinal damage when I was diagnosed.  Anemia was my symptom and I had no gut issues then.  So, just because she injests gluten and does not have some major symptoms right away, does not mean she is not building up antibodies.  Have those antibodies been re-tested to see if they are in the normal ranges now?  Missing patches of damage in the small intestine is possible.  Heck, the small intestine is the size of a tennis court (goggle it).  So easy to miss.  Also, your GI should have taken more than four samples?  How many were taken? (Forgive me, if I have forgotten.) Cross contamination in your house is real, especially if you have kids in the house.  Member Jebby, a preemie doctor who has celiac disease, was not getting well.  Turns out her four small and adorable children were glutening her.  She made her house gluten free.  Just something to consider.   You mentioned she had access to gluten at a party.  So, does that mean she caves in and eats it?  She needs to become a stakeholder in this diet.  
    • I think that if you soaked in the paddle in vinegar and scrubbed it a few times, you will be fine.  But if in doubt, just set the mixer aside for a while until your family's health has improved.  In the meantime, use your arm to mix dough!  My grandma never had a mixer!   I bought a bunch of new stuff because I had been married for 25 years when diagnosed.  It was time for new things!   Everyone is different in their response to gluten.  Science has given us a good estimate, but we know that nothing is "one size fits all".  You just have to figure out what is best for you and your family.   My anemia resolved within months of being gluten free (ferritin levels).  I still have Thalassemia, but it is mild and my body has adapted.  It is most likely the one reason that I never made the Olympic team!  😆 BTW, family and friends are not allowed to bring in gluten into our house with the exception of beer.  They can contribute to a potluck by bringing beverages, uncut fruit and veggies, new condiments, tableware, and ice cream ......etc.
