Palicinky – Pancakes

Palicinky are Slovak pancakes, a bit thicker than crepes, and better tasting, I think.  These have yeast and vanilla sugar in them, and have a wonderful, sweat and savory flavour.  In this version, they are cooked on a special frying pan that has four indents for the pancakes, so they turn out the same size every time.


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour (all purpose)
  • 2 packages vanilla sugar
  • 1 cube fresh yeast (or 1 package dry)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • blueberry preserves


  1. Mix the  milk with about 1 cup of all purpose flour, packages of vanilla sugar, yeast and egg.
  2. Heat the special pancake frying pan with sunflower oil, and fry the pancakes, 4 at a time, flipping when golden on the bottom side, about 2 minutes
  3. Whip 2 cups of cream with ½ cup of icing sugar, to stiff peaks.

To serve, spoon generous amounts of the whipped cream with a dollop of blueberry jam.
