Palachinka as they are known in South Eastern Europe or Crepes in France are delicate thin like pancake and are delicious! I grew up eating them with Nutella, I still like it like that but now a day’s I like it with jam and fruit! Both ways are great!
Growing up watching my mom make them I thought they looked easy…but it does take practice! The first time I made them they didn’t exactly turn out to be perfect circles like my moms! So make sure your pan isn’t too big, just big enough, non stick works best!
My mom usually doesn’t measure, she just throws in the flour, eggs, milk and water and stirs till it comes out the right consistency, crepes unlike pancakes are made from a thin watery batter. After watching my mom make them a million times…I made them myself with measurements, and wrote it out especially for you! Enjoy:)
What you will need:
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup 1% or 2% milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
In a large bowl, combine ingredients and mix well.
Heat a non stick pan, you may use some veg oil with paper towel just brush it with oil, use a 1/4 cup measure as a scoop, then pour batter shaping into a thin circle in the pan, I lift the pan and make the circle by turning the pan.
When edges of crepes turn golden start to curl up and flip cook other side. Turn onto plate. Makes 10-15 palachinkas (depending how big you make them).
Fill with jam or nutella and roll serve with fresh fruit if desired.
To make a yummy and easy dessert, get some fresh strawberries slice them and fill the palachinkas with whip cream and lay the sliced strawberries on top and roll, fold and drizzle with strawberry jam, dust with powder sugar makes for a wonderful dessert!
