Ok, here is my stab at Nalesniki....

1 Beat an egg.
2 Add 350 ml of water (1 1/4 cups)
3 Add 350 ml of milk (1 1/4 cups)
4 Add a splash of oil (canola or something else light) and a dash of salt and Mix well.
5 Gradually add 500 ml or 2 cups of flour, whisking constantly to avoid lumps (otherwise known as kluski....)

Part two to follow....


  • Hire a thug to beat an Egg

  • H2O

  • Krowa Juice

  • Flowers

First picture shows the batter (ingredients outlined as above...)

Let it sit for 10 minutes or so before you try to do anything with it, as the flour needs time to fully blend into the liquids. You may have to add a little more flour or a little more water to get the consistency right. Hard to describe the consistency in words, but it has to be thin enough to "Flow" and thick enough to stick together....

Next, we go onto the filling....

Add 500g tub of cream cheese (available at your local Polski Sklep)
Add a packet of Dr. Oetker's Vanilla sugar,
Add 6-8 Table spoons of granulated white sugar to the mess.

To Be Continued....


  • Batter Up!

  • Creamy Cheesy Goodness

  • Paging Dr. Oetker!

  • Sugar Sugar Sugar Sugar Sugar.....

First picture shows the filling:

Add a "splash" of milk and mix together. The amount of milk will vary depending on the consistency of the cheese used. You want it to be creamy, but not runny.

Let the filling sit untill the sugar fully disolves into the mixture and taste the filling to make sure it is as sweet as you like it. Adjust to suit.

Once the batter has settled, lets fry up some crepes!

Thoroughly heat a non-stick pan on a 6/10. Add a splash of oil (again, a light oil like canola...) and ensure the pan is entirely coated, but not swimming in oil.

Using a ladle (ours holds less than a quarter cup - or about 80 ml), hold the pan and start pouring the batter into the pan, while turning the pan in such a manner that the entire bottom of the pan gets covered with batter.

If the batter is the right consistency, you can actually watch the crepe cook through to the top side - the batter dries up on the top surface, and it is ready to flip. Flip and let it cook for 25-35 seconds and your crepe is done. Don't let them get brown / burnt by over cooking.

More to follow.....


  • Creamy filling

  • Creepy Crepe

  • Flipped!

  • First one out of the Pan

Place a generous dollop (don't ask me how to measure, please....) of the cheesy filling on the side of the crepe and roll it up. Be careful not to roll up one with two crepes, or you will have to unroll it and lick the filling off your fingers when it it unrolled.

When they are all rolled up, place a bit of masło in the pan and fry your nalesniki. I find that if the edge of crepe (after it is rolled) is placed down and fried first, it tends not to unroll when you flip them. Flip and Fry to a golden brown.

Makes 12 Nalesniki (13 crepes - but one always gets ruined).

Make sure to stop the kids from gouging each other's eyes out trying to get any leftover cheese filling out of the bottom of the bowl.

  • Fry Me to the Moon!

  • Let's Eat!

Mr Chopin, thanks for sharing. The tastebuds in PD Manor are going overtime. Although they may have to wait a bit before the fantasy is fulfilled.

I'm interested to know if anyone would write about Polish food for the ongoing competition because I am sure there any people who know more about cooking for occasion like weddings, funerals etc or just cooking in general. :)

-boil ~8 eggs and set aside to cool
-start with a jar of pickled mushrooms; drain the mushrooms and chop only them (without onions and other stuff from the jar)
-then chop some pickles (but not sweet once)
-then chop egg whites and mix with the mushrooms and pickles; keep the proportions
-then mix in a bowl egg yolks with some mayo (Kielecki!); make it smooth
-add the mixed egg yolks to the mushrooms, pickles and egg whites and mix all together
-add some salt and pepper to taste
-add a couple of table spoons of sour cream to the mix
-taste it if it needs maybe more sour cream or mayo... it depends how you like it... but don't make it too mild or too sour...
