Ingredients for crepes
- 1/4 cup sorghum flour
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons glutinous rice flour
- 1 teaspoon guar gum
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/4 cups chicken stock
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 1 tablespoon vodka
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 tablespoons clarified unsalted butter for the pan
1 In a blender or food processor, combine all the dry ingredients with 1/2 cup of the chicken stock and blend. With the blender on medium speed, drizzle in the melted butter followed by the remaining 3/4 cup chicken stock; blend for 30 seconds. Add the eggs and blend until incorporated. Blend in the vodka and water, then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.
2 Remove the batter from the refrigerator. It should be the consistency of heavy cream. If the batter seems too thick, whisk in more stock or water a tablespoon at a time until the right consistency.
3 In a 10-inch crepe pan or skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the clarified butter over high heat and swirl the butter to coat the pan evenly.
4 Pour a generous 1/4 cup batter into the pan and tilt the pan to coat the bottom evenly. Cook until browned on the bottom, about 1 1/2 minutes, then turn and cook on the second side until browned, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat to use the remaining batter, adding clarified butter as needed, stacking the finished crepes as you go.
5 To store, tightly cover the crepes with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Makes 8 to 10 crepes.
