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.

Yes what you are making are Palacinkes. They way I was taught to pronounce it was "paul-o-sink".
Palacinke is the generic term for pancakes in Czech, as far as what I was taught. Whether they were flour based, potato based, etc.

Unfortunately the grandparents are all gone now, so my knowledge of the language continues to slip. My great grandfather always said I came to America we will speak English. He had quite a thick accent, but learned and spoke English. He said the US gave him the opportunity for a new life by escaping the persecution during WWI, the least he could do was speak the language. Czech was only spoke at home.
