  • Ingredients:
  • 250 g (0.5 lb; 2 cups) flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup sparkling mineral water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 500 g (1 lb) cottage cheese, or ricotta cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 150 g (12 Tbsp; 5 oz.) sugar
  • grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups sour cream or whipping cream, not whipped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  1. BATTER: Mix eggs with salt. Gradually add flour, milk and mineral water. Mix until smooth. Let stand 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour approximately 3 tablespoons of batter into the pan, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. Cook each side until the golden brown (about 2 minutes each side).
  3. FILLING: In a bowl, mix eggs and sugar until foamy. Add cottage cheese, lemon rind and vanilla extract.
  4. ASSEMBLE: Add 2 tablespoons of cheese mixture down the center to each crepe and roll up as you would an egg roll. Place them seam side down in an oiled 9 x 9 inch casserole dish. Continue doing that till the dish is full.
  5. Mix cream with egg and sugar and pour over pancakes till they are all covered. Bake Croatian pancakes in 175 C (350 F) oven for about 25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or cold.
