One of the main protagonists of our tables in autumn are chestnuts.

Kept them immersed in water for one day and then they could be stored and used all over winter, but today we are going to focus on a great gluten-free dessert: chestnut flour crepes with ricotta and chocolate sauce.

For all those who are intolerant to gluten here, it is a healthy alternative to the usual flour, with which you can make thousands of delicious recipes, pasta, pancakes, and plum cakes.

And these gluten-free crepes are not only a delicious recipe but also very easy to prepare at home.

There is a little secret to make them great: first, make crepes like normal crepes, stuff them with a filling of ricotta and amaretto liqueur, then top with melted chocolate, which combines wonderfully with the sweet and sophisticated flavor of chestnut flour.

Ingredients for making chestnuts flour crepes with ricotta and melted chocolate

For 8 crepes

  • 6 eggs
  • 160 grams of chestnut flour
  • 125 grams of milk
  • 20 grams of melted butter
  • 20 grams of sugar

How to make the perfect gluten-free crepes

In a bowl beat the eggs with a whisk.

When you have poured all your stress on the eggs, add chestnut flour, sugar, then butter and milk little by little.

Strain the batter for the crepes with a sieve.

  • 1 organic lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of amaretto liqueur
  • 50 grams of sugar

Wash and grate the lemon.

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix everything until you get a smooth cream.

Serve the crepes hot, sprinkled with powdered sugar or with a bit of chocolate sauce or (and) vanilla ice cream.

Now, about the chocolate sauce:

  • 100 grams of dark chocolate
  • 100 grams of cream

Put chocolate and cream in a casserole and melt chocolate in a double boiler. Pour 2 spoons of chocolate sauce on a plate and put on it a couple of crepes.

Suggested wine pairings

This dessert has a very strong and sweet flavor, so bring in the good stuff: fortified wines like Port or whisky.

If you want to pair a cocktail, the White Russian is a good match.
