Hungarian Pancakes

Recipe by Tess8728

Easy, prepare-ahead recipe. The most time consuming part is making the crepes.

I just have to give these a 5 star rating cos I've eaten these wonderful pancakes at "Tess's" home just last week! Delicious, lacy crepes filled with yummy Aussie dried apricots, and served with sour cream. Must admit I was a bit sceptical about the sour cram, but it works so well. Delicious thanks Tess! And thanks for posting the recipe so I can put it in my cookbook.
