Baked pancakes with fresh cheese

Pancakes truly are great – we almost always have the necessary ingredients ready at home and kids absolutely love them.

They are an excellent meal to quickly prepare for surprise guests: "Let's make some pancakes!" Baked pancakes with cheese require a bit more time to make, as well as the use of an oven, which gives an additional note of seriousness that cannot be accomplished by just using a regular pan, and which will make your dear guests remember this old Zagreb recipe for a long time. It is up to you whether you will share the secret of the preparation with them.

 

Ingredients for 6-8 persons:

For pancakes:

2 eggs

250 g white smooth flour

200 ml of milk

100 ml of mineral water

½ teaspoon granulated sugar

1 pinch of salt

 

For stuffing:

4 eggs

120g granulated sugar

10 g vanilla sugar

400 g of fresh cheese

180 g sour cream

50g raisins

30 ml rum

40 g butter

grated zest of one lemon

 

For topping:

150 g sour cream

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

 

Also:

100 ml oil for frying pancakes

Preparation:

Pour milk in a suitable bowl, add two eggs, salt and sugar. Gradually add flour while continuously whisking, pour in sparkling water and mix into an even mixture. Heat a spoon of oil on a pan over a flame and pour in enough of the pancake mixture to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook on both sides until golden-yellow. Repeat the process to make all of the pancakes. Place fresh cheese in a separate bowl and add sugar, raisins, butter, four eggs, zest half a lemon and mix the ingredients well. Stuff the pancakes with the cheese mixture and arrange them on the bottom of a buttered heat resistant dish. Coat them with a mixture of sour cream and sugar and bake for 25 minutes in an oven preheated to 195°C. Set the baked pancakes on plates, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
