This savory and subtly sweet polish crepe (nalesniki) is a wonderful weekend brunch dish. Serve with potato salad, a simple green salad, and deviled eggs for a simple Polish Easter brunch. (*Indicates CSA product.)


Crepe Batter

  • 1 cup organic skim milk
  • 2 organic eggs*
  • 1 cup all-purpose organic flour
  • 2 tbsp organic salted butter, melted

Crepe Filling

  • 2 cups organic, part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 organic eggs*
  • 1 1/2 tsp sweet orange marmalade
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp organic butter*
  • sour cream


  1. Combine crepe batter ingredients in a large bowl and beat on medium speed with an electric mixer until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Set aside in the refrigerator for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the ricotta cheese through sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Heat a large, non-stick skillet on medium-heat. Grease pan well with butter. Pour a small amount (about 1/4 cup) of the crepe batter onto the greased pan (note: the pan must be hot), titling the pan to allow batter to spread evenly. Brown lightly on each side (about 15-30 seconds per side; use a spatula to carefully peel away the crepe from the pan and flip – see this video for more information). Remove the crepe to a large plate, and repeat until the batter is used up.
  4. Spread about 1/3-1/2 cup of the filling on each crepe (except for about a 1 inch edge around the crepe), and roll up, completely enclosing the filling.
  5. Melt about 1 tbsp of butter in the skillet, and lightly brown the outside of each rolled up crepe.
  6. Garnish with sour cream and serve.
