Pancakes, Hungarian Palacsinta

by - 10:58 PM

One of my favorite Hungarian snacks is the Palacsinta or Pancakes in Hungarian style. Its ingredients are eggs, flour, milk & water. It is absolutely easy to make! I just love it with Nutella :) Sometimes I go for the Hungarian cottage cheese filling too :) It smells great especially with some fresh lemon juice on the cottage cheese. The key difference of these Palacsinta to the American pancakes is that you've got to make it very very thin :)

1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
Pinch salt
1 cup carbonated mineral water
Oil for cooking pancakes

Mix eggs, flour, milk, and salt to make a smooth pancake batter. Let the batter rest for 1 hour.

Stir in the carbonated water at the last moment, just before cooking the pancakes.

Heat an 8-inch frying pan. When the pan is hot, add 1/4 teaspoon oil. Swirl to cover the bottom of the pan.

Pour a ladle of the batter into the pan and gently tip and twist the pan so that the batter THINLY covers the entire bottom of the pan. When the top of the batter bubbles, turn the pancake over and cook for 4 or 5 seconds longer. Remove the pancake. Continue until the batter is all cooked; add a little oil before cooking each pancake.

Serve by spreading your favorite fruit jam, cocoa mix, Nutella, cottage cheese with drops of lemon juice or any of your favorite filling and roll up the pancake, serve with fresh berries.
