Imperial pancake of Lady Bernadette Kinsky


You can taste an Imperial pancake at Tonio’s chateau café at Nový Zámek in Kostelec nad Orlicí. You can treat yourself to one after a stroll through the chateau park, which is also a nature reserve. With a little luck, you might meet the young lord of the chateau, Kristian Kinsky.

Baking: preheated oven, 200 °C, 2x12 minutes

Ingredients: 8 eggs, 250 g all-purpose flour, ½ l milk 60 g regular sugar, salt added to the flour, 125 g butter to grease the baking sheet, 2 handfuls of regular sugar to sprinkle on the dough
Beat the egg yolks with sugar and milk and add the flour with a pinch of salt mixed in. Whisk the egg whites and gently add them to the base. Grease a baking sheet with a higher edge with a layer of butter and place in a preheated oven. Pour the batter into melted butter and bake for 12 minutes. Then remove the tray from the oven, tear the dough into pieces with two forks, sprinkle with sugar and return to the over for another 12 minutes.
