“Here is a different way to make the crepes. This crepe uses baking powder. Cook the crepes until top is just dry before you flip over and cook on the other side for a few seconds. Since I did not have cottage cheese I used Ricotta cheese. I did not have sweet cream so I used Carnation Evaporated milk to cover first layer of pancakes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. TO MAKE THE BATTER, mix eggs, milk, and 1 Tablespoon sugar together.
  2. Add vanilla and oil.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and add to milk mixture, stirring until smooth.
  4. Using a greased frying pan, fry the batter into thin pancakes like you would do crepes using 1/4 cup of batter per crepe.
  5. Use a 7 inch non-stick crepe pan or any non-stick pan of that size.
  6. Swirl the batter around to cover pan.
  7. I use a brush to lightly brush pan each time with oil or butter.
  8. TO MAKE THE FILLING, mix cottage cheese, eggs, salt, 1 Tablespoon sugar and dill.
  9. Spread over each pancake with filling about 2 tablespoons and roll up like a jelly roll.
  10. Arrange on a well buttered casserole, and pour sweet cream over nalysnyky.
  11. Bake at 300 F, for 35 minutes. Uncover towards the end so that they will brown a little. Serve with sour cream. Makes about 12 nalysnyky.
  12. For dessert Nalysnyky leave out the dill in the cottage cheese and add a bit more sugar to taste if you wish.
  13. Wheatland Bounty.
