Method

Hungarian Sweet Pancake is a community recipe submitted by mara2 and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Mix the flour, egg and some milk and make a smooth base. Then add the rest of the liquid and salt and sugar (not too much sugar otherwise it will stick to the pan) so that you get a cream-thick mixture.
  • Add the liquid carefully, it shouldn't be too thin. Get a pan, and add a teaspoon of oil. Heat it and add some of the mixture. It should be very thin, almost as paper, but fill the pan completely.
  • Fry one side until it's golden, then turn it with a wide knife or something like that (experienced cooks can turn it by throwing in the air). Fry the other side.
  • Simply mix the ingredients adding sugar to your taste. Then get a pancake and either put some filling in a row or spread it on the pancake, and then roll it.
  • Another popular filling is the apple filling: Peel the apples, grate them, add some sugar and cinnamon to your taste and stew it in a pan.
  • Fill the pancakes in the same way as described above. Simple, but very delicious fillings are jams, cocoa powder or ground cinnamon with sugar, chocolate-hazelnut spread or you could even try peanut butter. Lots of variants!
