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!
1/2 glass of water
1/2 glass of milk
2 packs or 6 teaspoons of yeast for bread
Flour 1.5 glass or up until the dough will be neither too hard nor too soft ( recommended to take Golden Label flour) Salt 1 teaspoon
Sugar 2 teaspoons
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Mix water and milk, preheat on a minimum heat, but don’t boil.
Turn the heat off and let it stand for a minute. Add yeast, and mix it with the water and milk. Let it stand for 20 minutes . Add salt sugar, olive oil and flour. Let it stand for 3-4 hours.
Prepare the bread form. Smother the form with olive , corn or butter, so that the bread would be easy to take out of the form.
Take out the dough, add a little bit of flour and work with it until it will comer off your hands easily. Make the shape out of the dough: it may be round or square shaped, any shape.
Make 2-3 cuts on the dough to let the air go out of the dough, when it bakes. Cover the dough with plastic wrap including the form where you put it. Let it stand for 1.5 hour.
Preheat the stove at 350f. Before putting the dough to bake caver it with beaten yolk, so that it would have crust, when baked.
Bake your bread for 20 minutes at 350f and then turn the heat own to 250f let it stay there for 20-40 minutes until it looks nicely baked. Carefully take it out of the stove as it is hot! Put it to cool off and then take it out of the shape.
Enjoy your bread!
