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!

  • Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more. 
Super excited that my family is NOT doing gifts this year! We are all just bringing a side dish, dessert, and a board game for some quality family time. What are you doing for Christmas? #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies #grinchmas
  • Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4 o'clock: wallow in self pity. 4:30: stare into the abyss. 5 o'clock: solve world hunger (tell no one). 5:30: jazzercise. 6:30: dinner with me, I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock: wrestle with my self loathing. I'm booked! Course if I bump the loathing to 9 I can still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear! #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies
  • "I'm gunna throw up... and then I'm going to DIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!"
Probably my favorite line in the entire movie, so much so that it has stuck with me for years. This is often how my anxiety feels like, and I think of this line from the Grinch often when I'm struggling, even at the height of summer! So, the Grinch is a bit near and dear to my heart, and no one will ever take Jim Carrey's place in my heart, even if if it does grow three sizes. #grinch #thegrinchthatstolechristmas #christmas #grinchmakeup
  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
