Croatian-Serbian palačinke are thin crepe-like pancakes. When they are filled with jam, fruit, or sweet or cheeses and rolled, they are still known as palacinke (blintzes).
Hungarians call crepes palacsinta, in Poland, they are called naleśniki, Lithuanians call them naliesnikai, Ukrainians call them nalysnyky, and in Romanian, it's clatita. In Croatia, Croatian palačinke is popular. There is very little difference in the basic recipe, so this palačinke batter recipe will suffice for all.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup whole milk
Sweet Cheese Filling:
1 pound cottage cheese
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons tapioca
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
8 ounces sour cream
1 large egg yolk, beaten
2 tablespoons sugar
Steps to Make It
In a medium bowl, combine all the sweet cheese filling ingredients. Let it rest, covered and refrigerated, for 1 1/2 hours while you make the palačinke.
In a blender or food processor, combine the batter ingredients until smooth. Transfer to a pitcher, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes so the liquid can be absorbed by the flour.
Using a 2-ounce ladle, portion out batter into a nonstick skillet that has been coated with equal parts butter and oil. Rotate pan and swirl batter until it covers the entire bottom of the pan. Cook until lightly brown or spotted brown on the underside. Turn and cook the second side until light brown. See these step-by-step crepe-making instructions for more assistance.
Remove to waxed paper or parchment paper and repeat with remaining batter, separating palačinke with waxed paper or parchment. At this point, palačinke can be used immediately or wrapped and frozen up to one month.
Place 2 heaping tablespoons filling on one edge of each palačinke and roll away from yourself.
Heat oven to 350 F. Place filled palačinke on a buttered or parchment-lined baking sheet. Combine all topping ingredients, mixing well, and spread on top of filled palačinke. Bake 20 minutes.
