Bulgarian Pancakes

How to make pancakes – the Bulgarian way


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (1 cup = 240 ml)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 x 1/2 cup white flour
  • 2 tablespoon sunflower oil or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Mix the eggs, the milk, the water, the oil and the salt in large enough pot.
Start adding the flour gradually stirring the mix at the same time until it becomes homogeneous.
When ready pour the mix into a jug with a handle – it will be easier to pour it on the pan later. Get an empty plate to put the ready pancakes into.
Put a non-sticking pan on the hot-plate (electric ring). Turn the dial to 5 (middle of a 10 position dial). Wait about 4 or 5 minutes for the pan to heat up.

Pour some of the mix onto the pan – put enough to cover the bottom but not too much because you do not want the pancake to become too think. Wait few minutes until the pancake starts to come off the pan. Then flip it and wait another few minutes. Watch this short video to see how to do it:

And these are the ready pancakes. You will get about 10 pancakes if you use the ingredients mentioned above.
Use some chocolate spread or strawberry jam or whatever you like – spread it on the pancake and then roll it. You can add some whipped cream if you want.
