It’s that time of the month again when I feel like I haven’t been baking enough, like I’ve neglected having fun in the kitchen in favor of quick and easy recipes…
And that’s where my grandmother’s crepes recipe come in handy – they’re quick and easy enough to make while providing lots of fun (the flipping in the air part), an amazing and diverse dessert ;)
Palacsinta – Hungarian Crepes
25 dkg flour
3 dl milk
1 tsp sugar
a little butter or oil
a little mineral water
1 pinch salt
Mix the eggs with the sugar, salt, milk and flour. Add enough mineral water to result in about the density of cream.
Rest the dough for at least half an hour.
Then pour a thin layer of the batter onto a hot frying pan or flat circular hot plate, adding a trace of butter on the pan’s surface. Spread the batter evenly over the cooking surface of the pan by tilting the pan or by distributing the batter with an offset spatula.
Fry on both sides until it turns red.
I love the diversity of this, as you can eat it with basically anything:
a) if you want a sweet dessert add a bit more sugar and when done spread: Nutella, pudding, jam, powdered sugar, cocoa, mix of sugar and grated walnuts, etc. on it
b) you can add a lot of things into the batter before baking: peanut butter, diced mushrooms, squash, pumpkin, apples, etc.
Bon appétit ;)
