Celestýnské nudle – Recipe

Whisk the egg in milk, add flour, nutmeg, salt and baking powder, whisk properly.

Now, we’ll be basically frying pancakes. Depending on your pan you’ll fry them on butter, oil or nothing. I’m using a special pan only for pancakes and there’s no need to grease it but sometimes I like to make celestýnské nudle on a little butter. This batch of batter is for two pancakes.

Pour half of the batter on the pan and spread it over the whole surface of the pan. Let it fry, flip it and fry again. Do the same for the rest of the batter.

Roll up the pancake, cut it into stripes 0,5 – 1 cm thick. You can leave them like this or cut them in half lengthwise.

Put the noodles in a bowl and you’re done. Remember, celestýnské nudle aren’t supposed to be boiled in the soup, you add them in your plate just before you start easting.

Dobrou chuť!
