Polish Recipes - Nalesniki (crepes)

Nalesniki This is my mom's recipe. It must be one of the easiest Polish recipes to make. Nalesniki (Polish for crepes) are a very common breakfast food in Poland. It is especially popular with kids, because of the variety of toppings that can be used. When my kids visit their babcia (Polish for grandma), the first thing they ask for is nalesniki. 30 years ago, we only ate nalesniki for breakfast, usually with jelly. Nowadays you can order nalesniki in Poland for lunch or dinner, filled with mushrooms, cheese, veggies or meat as a main dish or sweet fillings for dessert.

Nalesniki are very easy to make. The preparation time is less than 5 minutes and each nalesnik is ready in about 30 seconds. This recipe makes 18 nalesniki. I hope you try this recipe at home. Smacznego!


  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine and mix milk and eggs.
  2. Add flour and salt and mix until batter is smooth and there are no lumps. The batter should be runny. If it is not, add a little bit of milk.
  3. Over, medium-high heat, warm up a medium size frying pan (we use non-stick), and brush it lightly with vegetable oil or butter.
  4. Pour ¼ cup of batter into the frying pan and quickly distribute it over the surface of the pan. You can do this by tilting the pan back & forth until you have a large pancake with no gaps.
  5. As soon as the batter cooks and becomes firm, brush it lightly with oil or butter (optional) and turn over.
  6. Wait 5-10 seconds and remove it from the frying pan.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 until all the batter has been used.
  8. Spread each nalesnik with your favorite filling, and roll or fold into triangles. Place on your favorite piece of Polish pottery, garnish and serve with pride!

Polish Pottery is beautiful and durable stoneware that is made by hand in Boleslawiec in the South-West region of Poland. Stoneware is a type of clay that is fired and matured in extremely high temperature exceeding 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. In essence it is a man-made stone that is impermeable and hard enough to resist scratching by a steel point. This hand painted stoneware became known throughout the world simply as Polish pottery.

There are several factories in Boleslawiec that manufacture Polish pottery. The highest quality Polish pottery is made by Ceramika Artystyczna. Their craftsmanship has been internationally recognized year after year. They employ the most talented artists in the region who hand-paint each piece of Polish pottery using brushes and sponges from the Baltic Sea. Another large manufacturer is Zaklady Ceramiczne. The smaller ones include Manufaktura, Wiza, Millenium, WR, Dana, Andy, Cerfar, Cergor and many more.

Polish pottery found on www.polmedia.com is safe to use in the microwave, oven, dishwasher and freezer. All Polish pottery that we sell is lead and cadmium free. We only import the highest quality Polish pottery, also known as Quality 1.
