DirectionsPancake Batter: Beat the eggs well and combine with the remaining ingredients.
Beat until the batter is smooth and creamy.
Use a small frying pan about 6 inches in diameter.
Butter lightly and heat well.
Pour a few tablespoons of the batter to cover the bottom of the pan with a very thin coating.
Tilt the pan back and forth to spread the batter evenly.
When lightly browned on the bottom and firm to the touch on top, remove the cake to a warm plate and keep it warm.
To assure tenderness, the cake should not be turned over.
However, it may be turned, if desired.
Continue baking in this manner until all of the batter is used.
Butter the pan lightly each time.
Spread the cakes with a favorite sweet filling.
Then roll or fold in two.
An excellent accompaniment for these cakes is the Orange Sauce.
Cottage Cheese Filling: Press cottage cheese through a sieve, add the rest of the ingredients, or put in a food processor.
Honey Filling: Cream the butter with the honey; stir in the remaining ingredients.
Crushed Fruit Filling: Fill nalysnyky with crushed, sweetened strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pitted cherries, or other fruit.
Orange Sauce: Mix all the ingredients until smooth and creamy.
