Bosnian Pancakes: Palacinke

bosnian-pancakes-palacinke-feature

The first time Damir said he was bringing pancakes for dessert, I was quite confused. Upon seeing these delightful crepes filled with Eurocreme (You guys, if you are addicted to Nutella, this is going to blow your mind. Half white half dark, and completely define. Heaven on your tongue. But I digress…), I was hooked. Palacinke, pronounced “Pal-a-cheen-kay,” are actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it, and I was lucky enough to have Damir’s dad teach me how to make these himself!

Bosnian Pancakes: Palacinke (Palacinci)

You will need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Cooking spray
  • Eurocreme, nutella, or jam for filling*

* You can also add chopped walnuts, bananas and whipped creme… it’s amazing!

Instructions:

1. Mix and thoroughly whisk all ingredients (besides the filling) together in a bowl. The batter will be quite runny and will not resemble American pancake batter at all, and this is perfect! You want the batter runny so it spreads in the pan and doesn’t cook too thick. Let rest for 15-20 minutes.

2. Heat a large griddle, pan, or skillet so that it is hot before you start. Spray the pan with cooking spray and use a ladle to pour batter into a circle on the griddle. It should spread out and be quite thin, about 6 to 8 inches across. If the batter is too thick with your first one, add more milk to the remaining batter, 1 TBS at a time.

3. Allow to cook for a few minutes until you can easily slide a spatula under the pancake, then flip and finish cooking until both sides are a light golden brown. Note, these won’t brown as evenly as American pancakes, you will likely get browned sections with the rest being very pale, and again, this is perfect. Cover cooked pancakes with a dish towel to keep warm and moist while you finish cooking the rest.

4. Spread Eurocreme (or other filling, but Eurocreme is my absolute favorite) over the pancakes, then roll into delightful tubes, and enjoy!

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • My first attempt at a stone makeup! Used Mehron water activated grey base, black to like the creases on my had (so many!) and black and white stipple fir more dimension. Turned out pretty cool, I'm hoping to do a full face application soon!
  • Today was a lesson in moderation. I have too much on my plate, and sometime you just have to accept that it is ok to accept defeat and just relax. This burned hand makeup was inspired as half of a poem(see previous post). Since the inspiration required two hands, I actually did all on this with my non-dominant hand! Gelatin for the burn scars, and my Ben Nye  bruise wheel for color.
  • i have loved
with hands closed
and hands open
both are accompanied
by their own type of pain

This was truly an example of art inspiring art. If you haven't read @andrewcoonswriting poetry, you need to follow him asap! Having both suffered heartbreak and chronic pain myself, this poem spoke to my heart, and I knew I wanted to use it for my next makeup look. 
The two types of pain display an open hand of stone, and a curled hand of burns. A love present but immovable, and love that burns hot and fast, leaving us scarred for life. 
Check out more of his work and keep an eye out for his new book of poetry, "Living with it," coming out in September!
  • So. Thirsty. Glycerin makes a great base for cracked and peeling lips. And you actually can't drink wearing it... at least, not without a straw. Now back to my morning caffeine infusion. I used my Ben Nye bruise wheel for the minimal colors, and my usual foundation to color the glycerin "skin."
  • Bloody knuckles! Today calls for a quick makeup and an early bedtime, as my sciatic nerve pain is approaching 11... I wanted a wound down to the bone, so I built up the torn skin with gelatin and rimmed the inside of the wound with black, leaving bare skin in the middle to take the appearance of bone when the look is done. I toned the gelatin with red water activated paint, and filled in with a rust and stippled purple to simulate the start of bruises. Finally, I coated it all down in blood. Not bad for a quick and dirty makeup!
  • "EAT SLUGS MALFOY!" Not a fun spell, and not one to attempt with a faulty wand. This "bonus" Chamber of Secrets was born literally from the thought that my ice cube tray looked like slugs! I had to pair my vom with some extra eye bags from a day of puking slugs. "Better out than in."
  • As promised... part two for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Basilisk after being blinded by Fawkes the Phoenix. This was a faster approach but I still think it turned out quite nice. The edges of the punctured eyes was made with glycerin, and I tried out my new Ben Nye scan blood! A great way to take a typical snake makeup to a different level.
  • Back to my Harry Potter series... nothing is more essential to the plot of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets than the Basilisk! I actually Iove the hell out of this one, done with mehron water activation paints and fishnet stockings. Aannndddd, since I was not on top of my game last week, I'm bringing you a two for one! Check back soon for part two of this look.
  • This look was a not so successful attempt at a major broken dose... think car accident minus other scrapes. Things I liked: I feel like the beginning of the bruise settling into the cheek was great. Not so much: I wanted to replicate swelling and added glycerin to build up the ridge on the nose. I think I needed to blend it out a little bit more, as it looks too abrupt. I also feel like this look has far too much red and purple in it. I think I could've accomplished a much better makeup with far less color, another one to try again soon!
