ISO Recipe for crepes, pancakes with carbalose, NOT carbquik


I'm having a surprisingly difficult time finding recipes for a crepe and/or a pancake batter recipe using straight carbalose flour rather than carbquik. I know leavening and other stuff needs to be adjusted, but I am already inexperienced with this kind of recipe anyway, so I can't quite figure out on my own the right adjustments to make.

I'm willing to follow complicated instructions/ingredient lists to get a convincing pancake at the least.

A light crepe recipe would be an added bonus.

Thanks in advance!

You could substitute carbalose 1 for 1 for the carbquik, but add a little salt (very little), some leavening, and perhaps extra butter to your recipe. Post your recipe, and someone here will be able to tweak it for you.

I suppose the problem is that I don't have a base recipe. I tried to adapt a random one using carbalose but it pretty much fell apart and was not flippable.

I guess the problem is that pancakes are typically made with a mix (LC or otherwise) like bisquik/carbquik anyway?

I'm not a pancake person--trying to get a recipe together for my husband, who has started LC.

Perdita - I don't know if you're interested in using coconut flour, but these pancakes are delish -- http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...es-w-pics.html
