Austrian Palaschinken(Austrian Rolled Crepes)

Penny Otte


This was a staple dinner for lazy Sunday nights taught to us by our Austrian dad.

We learned how to make Palaschinken very early on and continue to now make it for our families. I have friends from Hungary/Croatia who also make it for an easy dinner. Delicious and easy once you get the knack of making the crepes. Don't forget to butter your pan if they appear to be sticking.

How to Make Austrian Palaschinken(Austrian Rolled Crepes)


  1. Using a whisk or fork, beat eggs very well til there is no whites showing.

    Add the milk and the flour and a pinch of salt. When batter is right consistency the batter will be thin like heavy cream.
  2. While making batter, heat the pan. Pan should be evenly hot. Use a frying pan. Add some butter and make sure that the butter is even upon the bottom, and the pan is quite hot. Turn heat down to medium.
  3. Tilt pan while pouring in a scant amount of batter. Swirl pan til batter covers the bottom of the pan. Wait til the top of the crepe is dry, and then flip over for a few seconds on the other side. Stack onto a plate til ready to serve.
  4. To serve, spread a tsp. of jelly (apricot or grape) onto the crepe, roll like a jelly roll. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar or vanilla sugar. ENJOY!
