HUNGARIAN CREPES (PALASCINTA)

Batter Ingredients:
1 ¼ Cups Flour
1 Cup Milk
3 Eggs
1 Cup Carbonated Water
Unsalted Butter (melted) for cooking the pancakes (I use Cooking spray)
Instructions:
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together and whisk to form a smooth batter.
  2. Let the batter rest for 60 minutes.
  3. Stir in the carbonated water at the last minute just before starting to cook the pancakes.
  4. Heat an eight-inch crepe pan or frying pan and then add ¼ teaspoon of the butter.
  5. After the butter covers the bottom of the pan, pour about 1/8 Cup of batter and quickly swirl it around to completely cover the bottom of the pan.When the batter begins to bubble, gently turn the pancake over with a spatula and cook the other side.After flipping it over the second side doesn't take as long as the first side.
  6. Continue cooking crepes using the same method until all of the batter is used up.The crepes can be stacked on a plate until you are ready to finish them.
  7. These can be filling with any type of fruit.One of my favorites is strawberries and glaze rolled up with a little confectioners sugar on top and dollup of whipped cream.These can be used for savory fillings also.

Gale - Thank you for this delicious sounding recipe.  It also appears to be very easy to make.  My family likes crepe like pancakes and this sounds like it will suit us.  Have you ever tried lingonberries in them?  Being Swedish I use lingonberries in a lot of things, including fudge, so I think I'll try those in this recipe.  I think these will be made this weekend.

 Gale, I'm making this! I imagine it'll be used quite often this summer also with the fresh fruit in abundance.

You are all very welcome.Don't get upset if the first couple don't come out just right.That still happens to me and I have been making these for years.When we were kids my poor mom was standing there making them and we kept eating them as fast as she was making them.She finally said "Go Away" lol .These can be layered also with any sort of filling and sliced like a cake.Julia Child had someone on that was Hungarian and they layered it with some sort of Hazelnut filling and slice it like a cake.I'll see if I can find that.

Cheri I have never heard about lingonberries.Please tell me more about these.Thanks.
Vicki these are a great warm weather treat that doesn't heat up the house I always make them first thing in the morning for later in the day.

These can be filled with custard or one of my dad's favorites was to fill them with a sweetened dry cottage cheese and raisins he would put them in a baking dish and pour cream over the top and then bake them.I have filled them with my homemade sweetened ricotta rolled up and the strawberries and glaze on top and of course never forget whipped cream.I think I need to make these soon again.When we were kids we liked them with just jelly and rolled up.

Gale - Lingonberries are smaller than cranberries, are tart but so tasty.  We have them with Swedish Meatballs, but I eat them frequently.  My Grandma and Aunt would always make sure they were served at every meal, especially when I was visiting because I loved them so much.  Ikea includes them with their swedish meatballs meal and they also have them for sale in their Swedish Food Market.  Our local Perkins used to make crepes with lingonberries for a dessert, but under new management it disappeared.  I have even put them in my fudge recipe.  If you can find them, I would suggest giving them a try.

Thanks, Gale! I haven't made crepes in awhile, and this is a good reminder and reason to try your recipe. I have also frozen crepes, layered with wax paper between each one. Works well and comes in handy when you need a quick, delicious dessert or main course!
