Hello! How are you all doing? I know, these are the last days of summer… Let’s make them memorable!
So for a lazy and long weekend morning I’d suggest making these delicious crepes! They’re actually a bit filling, but after a light meal they’d be perfect as a dessert.
You will need:
- 4 eggs
- 1,5 cup whole milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon butter + for cooking crepes
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
First of all, melt the butter and let it cool. Grab a bowl and add the eggs, one-third of milk and whisk them. Add in the salt. Slowly whisk in the flour (make sure that there’re no clumps) then a bit of milk and again the flour until the batter is smooth.
Whisk in the butter, the remaining milk and vanilla. Stir in the sugar.
Whisk everything well.
Heat a small piece of butter in a pan. Use a small ladle to add appropriate amount of the batter. Make sure that the layer is thin. Rotate the pan to coat the whole bottom of it. If there’s too much batter in the pan, you can pour it out (that’s how I do that, ha ha)
Cook the first side until it’s lightly browned. Flip onto another side.
Let it cook properly, remove from the pan and place the crepe on a clean plate. Repeat these steps with other crepes.
Now it’s time to serve these warm and sweet treats! Hungarians often serve palacsintas with orange or apricot jam (just spread the crepe with the jam, fold it or roll up) and dust them with some powdered sugar. Another popular filling is cocoa powder (sprinkle the powder all over the crepe and roll it up) or nutella (spread it on the palacsinta, roll up).
I just fold the crepes into triangles, cut come strawberries in quarters and finished the dish by pouring some vanilla sauce on top.
Looks pretty mouth watering, huh? It actually is! The crepes are crispy and sweet, a perfect treat to sweeten your day!
Thanks for reading and have a good day!
