Pancake dough without milk - pancakes with beer seasoned with nutmeg, stuffed with cabbage and mushrooms

Croquettes with sauerkraut and mushrooms are great with red borscht. They taste best when fried in egg and breadcrumbs or in a less caloric version, i.e. without breading.

What kind of croquette pancakes? For years, my home has had a division into traditional and dry pancakes. Traditionally, those with milk and water, while in dry ones, I replace milk with light, light or non-alcoholic beer and add nutmeg.

In such pancakes on beer, when there is no stuffing, we can put a slice of cheese, sausage, roll it up and fry it.



250 g of type 500 flour

250 ml of light or non-alcoholic light beer (or traditionally milk)

250 ml of water

2 eggs

30 g of butter, melted and

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

frying oil


500 g of sauerkraut

100 g of dried mushrooms (porcini mushrooms, bay boletes)

150 g of onion

1 tablespoon of oil

salt and pepper to taste



Mushrooms pour hot water and leave to soak for about 12 hours. Then boil the mushrooms in the same water in which they soaked and leave to cool. Strain it through a strainer, do not pour out the water.

Pour water over the cabbage and cook it for about 30 - 45 minutes or until soft, cool it down. Drain the cooked and cooled cabbage and chop it.
Drained mushrooms, finely chop. Chop the onion and fry it in oil in a large frying pan. Later, add chopped mushrooms, season with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage, stir and fry for 10-15 minutes over medium heat. We can add the mushroom water to taste while frying, but be careful not to let the stuffing be too bitter. Season the stuffing to taste and cool down when it evaporates from the liquids.


Combine all the ingredients for the pancakes, mix them with a whisk or mix until smooth. Pour a little oil on the pan and spread it over with a paper towel. Fry thin pancakes on both sides until golden brown. For frying pancakes, I recommend rubbing the pans with a previously soaked oil with a paper towel.


Put a portion of stuffing, 1-2 tablespoons, on each pancake, it depends on the size of the pancakes. Fold the sides of the pancakes inwards and roll up the croquettes. We can fry croquettes in clarified butter with or without egg and breadcrumbs coating. Croquettes with cabbage and mushrooms are the perfect addition to red borscht.
