It’s usually traslated just as a pancake. But it’s not a pancake! Palačinka is more like French crêpe – light, thin, rollable. I made them today for my 6-year-old niece and she loved them. Cause every kid loves palačinky (that’s plural)! Hot, warm, cold. With jam, curd filling, chocolate spread or fresh fruit.
My mum’s curd filling is made with a soft curd mixed with few spoons of home-made jam. Jiří loves every red coloured jam, I just don’t care enough about the colour but peach with vanilla is the best in my opinion. BTW, my mum makes the best palačinky, trust me.
Try some of those fillings:
soft curd + jam
coconut + banana + chocolate spread
Grand Marnier + powder sugar
sour cream + strawberries
caramel + nuts
melted butter + powder sugar
I’ve got one useful tip for you: mix the batter in a blender.
Try them and fall in love with them!
- 440 g plain flour
- 1 l milk
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp oil (sunflower or rapeseed)
- 4 tbsp sugar
- a pinch of salt
- oil or butter for frying
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour and the mixture of milk, eggs, oil sugar and salt. Beat until smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled/buttered frying pan over medium high heat. Pour a laddle of the batter onto the pan and tilt the pan with a circular motion to cover the surface evenly.
- Cook the palačinka for 1-2 mins, turn when lightly brown.
- Serve hot, warm or cold.
