A couple years ago we leveled up our pancake game, and started making these easy sourdough crepes. Even better, we now have a pumpkin sourdough crepe version that can be used with any sourdough starter. They are packed with protein, prebiotics and PUMPKIN!
Our family's personal favorite way to use sourdough starter is in these sourdough crepes. They only require a handful of ingredients, are filling and everyone loves them. I love making these pumpkin sourdough crepes on cozy, fall mornings while sipping on a cup of coffee.
BENEFITS OF SOURDOUGH
One of the benefits of using sourdough is that the grains are fermented which is beneficial to your gut and can help with digestion. Some people who are gluten intolerant will say that they can tolerate sourdough because of these benefits, but you can also make sourdough with gluten free flour, if that is not right for you.
USING A GLUTEN FREE SOURDOUGH STARTER
I made our gluten free sour dough starter using this recipe, and prefer to use brown rice flour to maintain it. Once your starter is established, you can feed it and put it in the refrigerator where the starter will go dormant while not in use. When you are ready to use the starter again, reactivate the yeast by taking it out of the refrigerator to warm up to room temperature. I typically take mine out of the refrigerator on Friday evening to use on Saturday morning for breakfast.
TIPS FOR MAKING PUMPKIN SOURDOUGH CREPES
- We prefer making our sourdough crepes on the cast iron skillet. Make sure your skillet is heated up BEFORE you add the sourdough crepe batter to prevent sticking.
- I pour in about 1/4-1/2 cup of sourdough crepe batter to the skillet and try to spread it thin.
- Wait for the crepe to be almost cooked before flipping to prevent it from breaking.
There are many ways you can dress up these pumpkin sourdough crepes, like add a whipped cream filling. We liked to add a little cinnamon sugar, or just eat them plain with a drizzle of maple syrup.
