Palačinky is a term used in the Czech republic for pancakes. However, there is big difference between those two. The traditional american pancakes are higher and smaller in diameter. The czechs prepare the dough rather thin and fry it on a pan. Palačinka can be then filled with sweet or salty filling.

You have to keep in mind that the preparation is more difficult as the dough is too think. It can cause the palačinka to tear. But like everything, also cooking need some practice 🙂 For the basic palačinka base you will need 2 eggs, 100 grams of flour, 0,5 liter of milk. Mix it all together and fry it for approximately 5 minutes until palačinka is brow.

The preparation is really simple. As you can probably imagine palačinky have many ways to be filled with. My favourite filling is spinach or strawberries with yogurt if I am having sweet tooth. If you still have difficulties with cooking this delicious meal, see the video below:
