If you like pancakes you will like this recipe for Palatschinken which are thin pancakes and very similar to the French crêpes but much thinner than the American pancakes.
Palatschinken contain only a few ingredients: eggs, wheat flour, milk, sugar and salt. You would fry them in a pan with butter or oil. You can also fill the Palatschinken if you like, and enjoy them either for lunch or dinner.
Traditionally they are rolled with apricot, strawberry, or plum jam, and sprinkled with fine sugar. But you also can combine them with maple syrup, just like the American pancakes. They taste great with Nutella or a thick and fruity sauce made out apples, plums, raspberries, cherries or sour cherries. You can add almonds, dried or fresh fruits, sweet cottage or quark cheese and raisins. Happy Cooking!
(makes about 6-8 pancakes)
2 cups milk – 400ml
1 cup flour – 250g
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar (or to taste)
– Start with flour and salt, add all other ingredients, whisk well so that there won’t be any lumps. It should be a semi thick dough.
– Heat oil or butter in a pan (best is to use a crepes pan), let the pan get very hot.
– Ladle some of the batter, swirl it so it is nice and thin, then flip it.
– Keep the pancakes warm until all are done (the best is in the oven on a low temperature).
You can add some vanilla or almond flavor to the dough.
Enjoy them filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Great with apple sauce and a hint of cinnamon.
