Palacinki (Crepes)

Ingredients (batch of approx 20 individual crepes):


Batter:
  • 500 grams of plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 500 to 800 mls of skim milk (no exact measurement as you will need to rely on your own judgement)
Filling:
  • Nutella
  • Chopped bananas
  • Ground biscuits (Plasma)
  • Chopped walnuts (optional)
  • Whipped cream (on top)





Method:

1.
  Beat the egg in a mixing bowl then add the flour. Slowly stir and beat in the skim milk until the mixture is of a thin and creamy consistency. Tip: do not add too much milk as the mixture will become runny and stick to the pan.

2.  Spray a non-stick fry pan (or dip a napkin/cloth in cooking oil and smear over pan) and heat on stove over medium heat.

3. Depending on the size of the pan, use a ladle to pour the mixture into the pan, covering the entire surface. The ladle should be 3/4 full when using a small 20cm pan.

4. Heat the crepe for 30 to 50 seconds, or until light brown, then flip to the other side (I find using a knife is easiest).

5. Once both sides are cooked remove from heat and allow to cool. Tip: the crepe should be soft so do not over cook or it will be crunchy.

6. Smear Nutella, ground biscuits and walnuts over the entire crepe and layer a quarter or half of the crepe with chopped banana. If the crepe is large, fold over twice to form a triangle; or if small only fold over once.

7. Spray whipped cream over the top of the crepe, then decorate with chocolate sauce, icing sugar and strawberries.

The Magic of Easter

The traditional red, hard-boiled egg is the most prominent symbol of Orthodox Easter. Orthodox Christians will spend Thursday (Veliki Cetvrtok) dying dozens of eggs and decorating them with different colours and designs. However, it must be noted that the first three eggs should be dyed before dawn on Thursday, before Good Friday. It is said that these three eggs will not go rotten for years to come if they are dyed before the sun rises.

The first egg is dedicated to God; the second egg is dedicated to the head of the house or the 'Domakin'; and the third egg is for good luck. The first egg is said to be magical, and is therefore placed next to a religious icon in the house. It is even believed that this egg can cure illnesses. It is for this reason that the housewife or the 'Domakinka' should not attempt to dye these three eggs on an empty stomach. She must eat at least a mouthful of bread, as any eggs dyed on an empty stomach do not bring any luck. It is even believed…
