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!

  • One last shot of Sallywise! This was a great test to see what I need to focus on more when timing my looks, and also to realize that a lot of the detail I like to include might not really matter in the harsh dim light of a haunted house. On to the next look! #sallystitches #nightmarebeforechristmas #clowns #pennywise
  • Breaking the Instagram square because this shirt is goals, and one of my all time favorite Halloween finds. It’s from SheIn, and is literally exactly how I would imagine Sally’s dress would be as a shirt. It’s super comfortable, and it even comes in plus sizes! I’m always looking for ways to bring Halloween esthetic to my work wear, and I’m beyond thrilled. Oh, and did I mention it is only $16?!?!!!

  • When you are feeling Nightmare Before Christmas but need to practice clowns.... you get Sallywise! 
I challenged myself to get this done as quickly as possible, and originally had my timer set for 20 minutes... this one took about 45 including time to put on the wig, so all in all, not terrible considering I sometimes take a lot longer. The one thing I wish I would have spent more time on is the foundation, which wasn't as opaque as I would have liked, but overall, I really like this one!

  • Pretty sure I will never quite learn how to stay serious... I seriously love this look so much! #colors #colorful #illgrowupsomday
  • The most beautiful thing about poetry is that the collection of words carries more emotion and meanings than the author may have ever intended. They shape these words into skeletons made of language that we flesh out with our emotions. It’s a living thing, always changing. Make sure to check out the poem that inspired this look on my last post! #poetry #artinspiration #myfavoritepoet #livingart
  • Teal hues
And suddenly
Your breath
Becomes violet
Clashing against
Rainbow soundwaves 
And that way crayons 
Leave broken trails
Of color

  • Fun fact: these paints really sting when they get in your eyes. I tried to get it as close to my waterline without actually getting it in my eyes... and I was not successful. Also, not sure I can take myself too seriously in any kind of clown makeup. #clowns #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup #mehron
  • I'm going to be doing makeup for a haunted house this year, and when i asked what common requests were, I was informed that clowns are super popular. Until today, I have never yet done a clown... im actually not a huge fan, and I can completely see why clowns are great for terrifying haunt visitors. I've been in more of a pumpkin mood lately, and thought it would be a good way to ease myself into the concept. #clowns #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup
  • They said there will be a lot of clowns, but I was feeling pumpkin vibes... and this was the result! I should go to bed, but I’m having too much fun to take this off just yet. 🎃Now for some spooky Netflix and popcorn, and pit bull snuggles on the couch. She’s giving me some side eye right now. #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #pumpkinmakeup #pumpkins #jackolantern #jackolanternmakeup
