Nalesniki – Polish Crepes

Nostalgia, alll over the place.

Just a quick-ish post. My mother made these for Michael and I last weekend 🙂 I asked. It was one of my favourite things she used to make!

Nalesniki, or just plain ol Polish Crepes, are basically like every crepe out there. A thin pancake batter. But the polish make it, and have a name for it, and a polish person made these!

The recipe:

  • 2 eggs (1 if it’s a large egg)
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
She says you don’t want to add too many eggs as it will make the crepe tough.

Mix until you have a thin batter, add a bit more milk if it seems too thick. You can tell this when you go to cook them. Spoon enough to cover the bottom of the pan and swirl around to cover. If the batter isn’t thin enough to spread across the bottom of the pan, you have made pancake dough. Enjoy your pancakes.


Crepe a swirlin!


Cooked crepe. You want to cook them until just cooked through. Don't need to be fried to a crisp! You want fluffy and soft!


She made a beautiful fresh blueberry/jam/lemon extract compote. It was SO GOOD. My all time favourite was this one year where she made her own rhubarb plum jam. But you can put whatever you like inside!



Rollem up!


Have at least TWO and cover with more of your jam/compote/fresh fruit/syrup, etc. I think my brother used to like straight sugar. BLEH.
