5 Pancake Recipes to Wow Your Family on Pancake Day


3. Italian Chestnut Flour Crepes

These gluten-free pancakes are healthy, diet-friendly and delicious. Their taste is a little bit unusual, but if you top them with some berries, cottage cheese or honey you will like them. My cousin, who currently lives in Bologna, shared this recipe with me, and I’m going to share it with you.

  • 2 cups chestnut flour, sifted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


In a medium bowl, combine chestnut flour, egg, milk, water, salt and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Let it stand for 15-20 minutes. Preheat a large pan or griddle to high heat. Brush your pan with melted butter and pour a little bit of batter in pan – your pancakes should be as thin as possible. Cook until golden brown.
