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!

  • When I first saw @miss_stryx post her challenge, it really shook me. What AM I most afraid of? My first thought... was everything. Which made me realize that honestly, my biggest fear is losing control of my PTSD. I was diagnosed with PTSD 9 years ago, but it  took a good few years before I really understood what that even meant and how it impacted how I felt each day. It took even more years of counseling and amazing support from my friends and family before I was able to really get control of it. I'm happy to say that I'm now at a place where I live with PTSD but it doesn't control me. That being said, I'm always terrified of what might happen if it would spiral away from me again.
My second greatest fear is something that has plagued me from my childhood, but became an outright phobia and trigger once I developed PTSD. That is a fear of needles.  Shots, giving blood, and especially IVs.  Then it hit me... what is the perfect combination of both of these  fears? A lobotomy. A very controversial treatment used in the past on people with mental illness, involving a huge needle. 
From that terrifying vision came an awesome collaboration with some really great friends, and filmed and edited by the INSANELY talented @jibclimmer to complete my first ever horror short film. I'm so thankful to have so many talented and wonderful people that were willing and excited about making this vision a reality. I hope this isn't too dark for you guys, but I totally understand if it is! The idea actually terrified me and I put myself in the very center of it! Ultimately, filming this was actually not scary at all, as I have such incredible friends, and I was in a safe space the entire time. This particular version of the film is not the final version, since we were limited to 60 seconds on Instagram. Very soon we hope to have the entire short film up and posted and I will make sure to let you all know when that is live on YouTube! It is with great pleasure that I present to you my entry for round 1 of the #StrykingFEAR contest.
  • What would you do if you foresaw the telling of your own death? Here are some stills of my round 2 entry for the #StrykingFEAR contest. To see  the backstory on my Undead fortune-teller,  check out my last post for a quick short film introduction. The 2 part tutorial video should hopefully be up on the blog shortly!
  • For round 2 of the #StrykingFEAR contest, the character I was initially least excited about was the fortune teller. Why? Because fortune tellers are usually great beauty makeups. While I love doing horror looks, I really can't say I'm great shakes at beauty makeup. And then it hit me... what a great opportunity to do something outside my comfort zone AND something familiar with a two part makeup? I borrowed a crystal ball from a friend, ordered tarot cards, and learned a little bit on how to do a reading and pulled together an ending to this fortune teller's story… or should I say beginning?
  • When your sling gives you a full blown chronic pain flareup. Laying on the floor with my legs up to help take pressure off my lower back, and mystic seems pretty concerned. Good thing I have episode three of the @girlinspacepodcast to listen to!If you haven't started listening to this audio drama, you need to check it out ASAP! #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #lifeinasling #girlinspace #findme
  • Good things happen when you leave the apartment for the first time in a week! These must've gotten dropped off when I was taking a nap, I opened my front door to find this gorgeous Halloween bouquet on my doormat from @bkbecker! I just can't get over those adorable bats!!! #ihavethebestfriends #halloween
