Pancakes are big news throughout Eastern Europe, but these particular ones from the Czech Republic are marvellously fluffy and puffy. Based on potato and filled with spinach, this is not posh food, but it does make a fine and comforting supper.
125g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 medium eggs
Oil for frying
For the filling:
1 kg fresh spinach or 700g frozen spinach
1 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp crème fraîche
Freshly grated nutmeg
The musky flavour of spinach needs a clean, herby white with crisp acidity.
