PALACSINTA (CREPES)

Dessert, Food From Friends

3 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp. sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup club soda
Margarine or butter (for cooking the crepes)

Mix eggs, flour, milk, sugar and salt. Make a smooth pancake dough. Let dough rest for 1 to 2 hours. Stir in club soda at the last moment, just before cooking the pancakes.

Heat an eight inch frying pan. When the pan is hot, add 1/4 tbsp. margarine or butter. Let it melt and cover the bottom of the pan. Pour a ladle of the batter into the pan. Gently tipping and twisting, spread batter so it covers the whole pan. When the top bubbles, turn the pancake over and cook for another 4 to 5 seconds. Remove the cooked pancake into a large plate.

Fillings for Pancake: Apricot jam or Farmer cheese mixed with an egg yolk, sugar and raisin mixture. Roll the filled pancake and then fry lightly to heat before serving.
