This is one of the many recipes passed down through my family. These light and lemony pancakes take some time to prepare, but your family will show their appreciation with sounds of "Mmmmm!" and happy faces!


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup raisins, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Additional sliced almonds, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, milk, water, egg and salt; beat until smooth. Cover and let stand for 1 hour.
  2. In a lightly greased 8-in. skillet over medium-high heat, add 2-3 tablespoons batter; lift and tilt skillet to cover bottom. Cook until lightly browned; turn and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. Stack pancakes with waxed paper between layers.
  3. For filling, beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Stir in raisins, almonds, lemon zest and salt. Place 1 tablespoon filling down the center of each pancake; set remaining filling aside. Roll up pancakes and place seam side down in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  4. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold in reserved filling. Spoon over pancakes; sprinkle with brown sugar and almonds if desired.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
