So what what the heck are Hungarian Pancakes? Here is all you need to know:
Hungarian pancakes = DELICIOUSNESS
I can actually give you a better description: they are like Swedish pancakes. There. Now you have it. One of the first things my sister, her boyfriend, and I decided to do last Saturday was to make pancakes together, have some wine and watch a movie. A pretty low-key day but for us it was perfect.
I know what you are thinking: “Cut the BS, get to the point! Please and Thank you.” Well, here it is:
- flour – 4 cups
- eggs – 2
- milk (if you are lactose intolerant you can skip this and use soda water only)
- soda water
- salt – pinch
- sugar (you can skip sugar too, the fillings are sweet enough…)
- oil – 2 tbsp in mix & use some for the pan
*the amount of milk and/or soda depends on how thin you want to make them. The runnier the mix, the thinner the pancakes.
PANCAKE HOW TO
- Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together with a mixer until the mix is smooth and runny like a not-so-thick smoothie would be. The thicker the mix the thicker the pancakes will be (duh 😉 ), but with Swedish pancakes you wanna make sure that they are as thin as possible. So make the mix ‘liquidish’. Not a word. I know.
Is it just me or this bowl of flower and egg combo looks like a pissed off person?
2. Once the mix is done, heat a pan (or two or three if you like to multi task) with some oil and prepare two plates. One plate is for the messed up pancakes that stick to the pan or break (because there will be some). You will eat those in the mean time and that is the beauty of the process! Nothing else is really fun about it, making pancakes is as boring as it gets. The other plate is for the ones that are more presentable and you will eventually serve.
3. Scoop the mix into the pan once it is hot enough.
4. How do I know when to flip them pancakes? (#greatenglish) When you see the top getting solid and it is not runny anymore, it is time.
- Sugar & Cinnamon mix
- Cocoa powder & sugar mix
- Nutella (have I mentioned this one before?)
They are perfectly pairable with hot cocoa or coffee.
