Palačinky - Czech Crepes

My mom used to make Palačinky, Czech crepes, for us when we were little. We would help by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl and my mom would fry the crepes, impressing us with her flipping skills. Then we would take turns spreading the jam and rolling the Palačinky. We enjoyed these both warm and cold the next day.

2 eggs
3 Tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
2 cups flour
Pinch of salt
Oil (for frying)

Your favorite jam
Powder sugar

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, sugar, milk, flour and salt. Over medium high heat, add 1 tsp oil and spread over frying pan. Pour a thin layer of batter and spread over pan by tilting and rotating pan. Crepes should be very thin, almost transparent. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Spread with jam, roll up and keep warm until served. Dust with powder sugar before eating.
