Palachinki (Crepes, or Палачинки) is a popular Bulgarian brunch item. When we were growing up my mom and grandma would make them on the weekends and we would wait around the stove and just grab them as soon as they were done and devour them with either honey, jam or feta cheese! The recipe is quite simple and with the modern kitchen appliances (such as Blenders) everyone can make perfect batter and enjoy delicious home made crepes!
- 4 eggs
- 16 table spoons all purpose flour
- 1 table spoon sugar
- 1/2 table spoon salt
- 1/4 table spoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup water (sparkling water works great but if you don't have any then tap water is just fine)
Put eggs + flour + sugar + salt + vanilla + milk + water in a blender. Blend until the mixture is nice and homogeneous and there are no more chunks of flour left.
Put very little olive oil in a pan and heat on med/high setting.
Then gently add ~ 2/3 laddle of the batter and swirl the bottom of the pan while adding in order for the batter to be evenly distributed. Cook on med/high heat for ~ 1 min then flip the crepe and cook for another minute.
Serve with your favorite jam or honey or whatever else you like on your crepe.
