Now you got me wondering -
My grandmother was from Lithuania -
Her pancake recipe came down through my father to me - it's simply one egg, one cup of milk, one cup of flower.
It makes very thin pacakes - like crepes.
Is that what you're referring to?
Being not-so-highly-refined americans, we never had a fancy name for them like "Palacinke" - we referred to them as "rubber pancakes" (since they were, well, rubbery pancakes).
I still eat them today, I perfer them to "regular" pancakes, as do my kids.
