Pancakes are a traditional dish for Ukrainians and all Slavic nations.
For 1 stack of thin pancakes (12-15 thin pancakes) you will need:
0.5 cup of water and 0.5 cup of milk (1 cup of water);
2-3 drops of vanilla extract;
2-3 tablespoons of sugar;
0.5 cup of flour;
Salt on the tip of the knife;
2-3 tablespoons of sunflower/corn oil;
Mix properly all the ingredients. You can start with mixing egg(s) and water/milk, then gradually add sugar, flour and salt/ sugar. The dough shouldn’t be thick or thin. It should resemble the consistency of crème-soup.
After you have mixed everything add 2-3 tablespoons of corn/sunflower oil.
Preheat the frying pan 2-3 min at the highest heat, and then reduce to medium. Pour a little bit of oil on the frying pan, then take the soup ladle and pour one soup ladle full of dough on the frying pan.
*My Secret Trick*: when you take the ready pancake off the pan, cut a thin slice of butter and smear it on a hot pancake. It will melt and your pancake won’t be dry*My Secret Trick*
When you have fried all the pancakes let them cool off then cut them in half and stuff with the cream cheese. Just cut one slice of the cream cheese, then cut this slice in 4 pieces, Put each quarter of cheese into your pancake half and then roll it up. Put the rolled up pancakes into the frying pan that you used to prepare you pancakes. Stew your pancakes on the lowest heat, so that the cream cheese could melt and the pancakes could get a golden crust:-P
Take one serving of warm pancakes, cover it with the scoop of ice-cream and enjoy!
