Crepes (Palacinke)

This time I am going to write about my mom's palacinke (crepes).  She makes awesome crepes and mine never turn out as good as hers do.  So I decided to have her take some photos and write up her recipe for our blog.  My mom usually doesn't follow a recipe and they always turn out perfect, but I asked her to write down her ingredients and directions this time.  So here is her recipe:

- 3 eggs
- 5 cups of flour
- 5 cup of milk
- 5  cup of warm water
- oil (vegetable, canola, or sunflower seed oil)
- pinch of salt or sugar (optional - my mom does not add this)
- pinch of vanilla powder (optional - my mom does not add this)

- Beat the eggs in a large bowl
- Add 1 cup of flour and mix
- Combine milk and warm water and gradually add 2 cups to the egg/flour mix 

- Add 1 more cup of flour and mix
- Add more milk and water and keep mixing
- Keep adding flour, then milk and water, until the mix gets a texture of a thick soup (like it is seen in the photo below)

- Heat up about 1 teaspoon of oil in a medium sized pan
- Use a soup ladle, scoop the flour mix (like seen in the photo) and pour over hot oil
- Leave on one side for about 1 minute until golden, then flip to the other side using a spatula
- When the other side gets golden, transfer to a plate and do the same with the next crepe
- Making crepes can be complicated at first and takes practice to get them perfect.  They may rip or stick to the pan at first.  (Please let me know if you have any questions about this process.)

- Keep adding more oil if needed, but only about 1 teaspoon at a time since the crepes should not absorb too much of it
- Use should make about 15-20 crepes and this should be enough for a bigger group of guests
- Serve with Nutella, Lino Lada Hazelnut Spread, or your favorite jam or jelly.

Crepes are always a hit when inviting friends over!  I hope that you are going to like this recipe!  Enjoy!  :-P
