Palacinky (Crepes)

Mmmm.... the mere thought of Czech Palacinky (pronounced pah-la-chin-ky) makes my mouth water. These are essentially French crepes spread with jam, nutella, or something similar, rolled up, and topped with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, ice cream, or something similar. What's not to like? These can be made ahead of time and frozen, stacked with wax paper between layers. Thaw in fridge.

~the "Crepes" recipe from Heart and Soul, a Memphis Jr. League Cookbook

  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 c. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T. cooking oil
  • 1/4 t. salt
  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Beat with a rotary beater or stick blender until well mixed.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 6-inch skillet. Remove from heat. Spoon in 2 tablespoons of the batter; lift and tilt the skillet to spread the batter.
  3. Return to heat; brown on one side only (sometimes I use more batter and carefully flip them). 
  4. Invert pan over paper towel; remove crepe.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet occasionally.
 ~Makes 18
