At Crepes Tea House we have many different types of pancakes. From potato pancakes all the way to our sweet option, the farm cheese pancake. In this blog post all of the pancakes are broken down to is in them and what makes them so unique and delicious!
One of the most popular savory pancakes at Crepes is the Potato pancakes, or draniki. This pancake is made out of finely shredded potatoes, eggs, onion, flour, and a pinch of salt and parsley. This pancake might remind you of hash brown except it is more smooth and has a bigger volume.
All of our other savory pancakes such as the beet, zucchini, and squash are made in the same way. The composition of these pancakes are the shredded vegetable, eggs, flour, and a pinch of salt.
Fun Fact: Did you know that Crepes Tea House offers gluten free options for the savory pancakes? Unfortunately, we do NOT offer gluten free sweet pancakes.
Whether you want them for breakfast or desert, Farm Cheese (Sirniki) pancakes are perfect! Our Farm Cheese pancakes are composed of our delicious, fresh homemade farm cheese! This cheese is not like mozzarella or cheddar cheese, it can be mainly described as a sweet ricotta and cottage cheese crossover. You can read about our homemade farmer’s cheese on one of our previous blog posts! (https://crepesteahouse.com/farmerscheese/) Also, there is a little bit of flour, eggs, sugar, and baking soda to make the pancakes fluffy and airy.
Another sweet pancake that we have is compared to the most traditional style of pancakes. The Slavic Pancake is a fluffy pancake made out of flour, sugar, eggs, and baking soda.
Our savory pancakes are served with parsley sprinkled on top and sour cream. You can always ask your server to put white garlic on side instead of the sourcream if that’s what you prefer. For our sweet pancakes, we have sour cream and fresh fruit on the side. We can always bring maple syrup for your pancakes so, do not hesitate to ask!
