Palacinky (Slovak Crepes Suzettes)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

My mother would always make these for us on the weekends. I still make them and love them just as much. We always fill them with either jelly or jam. I made these once for a breakfast get together and also used flavored fruit syrup and whipped cream to go over the rolled palacinki.

Thanks for posting! My Hungarian-Slovak mother in law used to make these, just like this! She used to have bananas and melted chocolate or jam to fill them with, yum. However, in my very American way, I liked to fill mine with melted butter, sugar and cinnamon - still love it! These are super easy. From other recipes I have let my batter rest for around an hour. I really appreciate it, Jane from Ohio*!

I'm so excited to find this recipe, thank you so much! This was a huge favorite with my siblings, cousins, & I. We use to beg my grandmother to make this every time we stayed with her. We called it Palacinka & I have been searching in vein for a recipe. (My Serbian is very very poor/ non existent & didn't think I was spelling it correctly) My grandma filled it with jam just like this recipe with powdered sugar & whip cream on top or also with a cheese filling. I can't wait to make this again for my family & my husband who has heard all about my Palacinka memories!
