Šmorn With Raisins - A Slovenian Pancake#EattheWorld

This is one dish that I really enjoyed for breakfast when I visited Slovenia. This is also had for supper/dinner with a fresh salad... which makes light and delicious meal!

Šmorn (shmorn) a Slovenian-style buttery, double-fried, pancaken it's a traditional Slovenian breakfast/brunch. It’s something of a cross between a crepe and a pancake. It is very easy to make and children will love it.
Serves One

2 Large Eggs - separated
¼ Cup Whole Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Butter
¼ Cup All Purpose Flour
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
¼ Cup Raisins
¼ Cup Rum
Icing Sugar - for dusting the top
Soak the raisins in rum till it covers and let it sit at least for half an hour. 
After that drain all the rum in a strainer and let it drain any excess moisture.
Separate the egg whites and yolks. 
Beat the egg whites till soft peaks.
To the yolks add the salt, sugar and vanilla and milk and whisk till well blended. 
Then fold in the egg whites, little at a time till no white patches are seen. 
The pancake batter is ready!
Heat a 6" dia skillet with 1½ tablespoons butter. Heat until the butter starts to bubble, then pour in the batter mixture, tip the pan back and forth until the bottom is completely covered with an even coating of batter. 
Sprinkle the drained raisins on top. Let is cook on low flame, covered for 5 minutes on one side or until the batter is firm and the edges begin to brown, then turn.
To flip take this on to a plate then flip it back into the pan.
Before adding the pancake back add ½ tablespoon butter and then add the pancake, let it cook till the other sides is golden or has a pretty uniform toast color or has browned, uncovered, although this side will be spotty as the šmorn will crinkle a bit while cooking.
Transfer this to a serving plate.
Dust/sprinkle with icing sugar. 
Enjoy this with jam of your choice and a cup of coffee or tea. This is served open-faced. 
Fruit jams and jellies work well as a filling. So does butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
