Palacsinta (Palacheeta - Hungarian filled Pancakes - Crepes)
Given to me YEARS ago at Malmstrom AFB by Sarah H.

5 eggs
1/2 C sugar (honey, rapadura, agave nectar all work- adjust liquids)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C Flour (I use soft white wheat - but any would work)
2 1/2 C milk

Beat eggs. Add sugar, salt, vanilla. Beat well. Add flour and milk gradually beating until smooth. In a lightly greased pan put 3T batter, rotate pan to cover evenly. Brown on both sides. Keep crepes warm until all are fried. Serve with jelly, fruit, butter/Cinnamon, Peanut butter/Syrup, or cheese filling (authentic choice ::snort::)

Cottage Cheese Filling
1 carton cottage cheese
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
Mix well.

I wouldn't know what the cheese filling is like - we've never tried it. I have no trouble keeping these warm, they disappear as fast as they are done.

Horrors - my children LOVE these and I've not made them for quite a bit of time. Nolan asks for them every Saturday and often during the week. I decided to make them and couldn't' find the recipe. I thought it was on the blog and it wasn't - now it is. And now I'll go make some crepes for breakfast. Thanks for sharing your old family favorite with us Sarah, it's become one of our family favorites. And to think those little kids running in base housing are now GRADUATED adults. LOL

YUM... I've been wanting to make crepes the next time I have to take b-fast for the worship team. This will be PERFECT!

Do you have a crepe maker? We have one and it's SO HANDY... makes them thinner than I was able to make them in my pan.

Those sound yummy! I think whipped cream and fruit sounds great!

Maybe I'll make these with peaches on Tuesday...the first day of school ??

Cindy - I do not have a crepe maker? I use a cast iron pan. One of my pans work great - the others don't. I don't know why. I was telling the kids today a crepe pan may be a nice Christmas gift....what is this maker???? Is it like a waffle iron or a pan? Does it make more than one at a time? I'd make these much more often if I could make more than one at a time.....

Kelly - peaches sound yummy.

I made these this morning and they were great! We didn't make the cheese filling since it has raw egg in it but the crepes were fab!

Glad you liked them, Lisa. I also avoid raw eggs unless they are in cookie dough. LOL
