Thin pancake recipe: we call them in Ukraine Nalisniki

Ukrainians love pan cakes. I have provided few pancake recipes on my blog, such as huge pancakes or apple pan cakes. Here is another one, we call Nalisniki. This word means that the pancake is large and covers all the pan.

Nalisniki pan cake recipe

The plate beneath the pancakes is large.

Nalisniki pancake recipe:

Milk 1 quart

1 egg

2-3 table spoons of sugar


5 table spoons of all purpose flour

These are the basic ingredients for these Ukrainian pancakes.

The making:

Add egg to the milk, stir well, then add salt and sugar. Finally, start adding flour spoon by spoon. The mix has to be pretty liquid, but with no blobs. Usually, I mix it with a hand whisk, but you can also use an electric one. Only in this case you would have to add more flour.

The mix has to be as thin sour cream in its texture. Then you heat up the pan, pour in some vegetable oil, take a larger spoon and pour the mix on hot pan. You fry the pan cakes on both sides. That is the basic Nalisniki pan cake Ukrainian recipe.

Easy huge pancake recipe

As a mother of two young girls I have very little time to give to cooking. Still, we all love pancakes, but it takes time to make and fry them. That is why I have made some huge pancakes one of these days. They save you time and trouble of baking them. Take a look at my huge pancake recipe.
huge pancake recipeThis plate is the largest plate I have. So, the pancake is huge.

Huge pancake ingredients:

1 pint of sour milk

1 egg

5 table spoons of sugar

1/4 tea spoon of salt

1/2 tea spoon of baking soda

3 oz of soft cheese or curd

10 table spoons of flour (or more)

Huge pancake making:

Basically, I mix all the ingredients up, except for the curd. When the mix is ready, I crush curd with the fork or grind soft cheese and add it in. Now, we are ready to bake the huge pancakes.

I heat up the pan well and pour enough of mix to cover up the entire pan. I also make a pretty thick layer of the dough. Then I put a top over the pan. This helps the huge pancakes to get cooked faster and better.

I serve these huge pancakes with honey or sour cream. Of course, you can use the same mix recipe for making regular pancakes. But, baking large size pancakes saves you time.

This way, you can make just one huge pancake for every family member! You can also get two pans on the stove and  double cut  the time, spent on baking them.
