Project Description

Pancakes are very popular in Hungary. Its origin is not clear, most probably it developed from the roman plazenta, a small round cake that was eaten instead of bread. Hungarian pancakes are thin, similar to French crepes but totally unlike American hot cakes or griddle cakes and they are not eaten for breakfast.

Most often I fill them with home made apricot jam or sweet cottage cheese.
