Nalesniki z serem
Yesterday I visited my mother and she made me some delicious sweet Polish pancakes with quark-curd, Nalesniki z serem. The equivalent French name is much fancier, Crêpes au fromage blanc. But it really doesn’t matter as it tastes delicous anyway :-) It’s one of my favourite dishes and it reminds me of my childhood.
Quark-curd is frequently used in the Polish kitchen and my boyfriend thinks that it’s the main ingredient in all Polish dishes :-) But of course that isn’t true, it just happens to be the main ingredient in my family’s favourite dishes: Sernik (cheesecake), Nalesniki z serem (pancakes with quark) and Ruskie pierogi (dough wrap filled with quark-curd and potatoes, see the photo below).
I don’t have any exact recipe for the pancakes as I do them by heart. If someone wants an exact recipe please write me and I’ll do one batch of pancakes and make sure to write down the exact amount of all ingredients :-)
- Nalesniki z serem
1 decilitre of flour
2 decilitres of milk
a pinch of sugar
250 quark-curd (Swedes can use a package of “Kesella Gourmet”)
1 egg yolk
raisins (my mother always marinate them in rum for a couple of hours)
Make the filling by blending all ingredients. Make the pancake dough, fry the pancakes and set aside. Divide the filling between the pancakes, then fold every pancake in the middle and then fold them in the middle again. Sprinkle icing sugar over the pancakes and serve. Yummy!
