  1. Great recipe! Is it a half can of condensed milk? How many mls of condensed milk is used in this recipe? Thanks

  2. Great recipe – thanks! I love-love-love zapekanka and always happy to learn new recipes. I always use the same recipe: and it always comes out very moist and delicious.

  3. What can I say. It is delicious. I have been making zapikanka already second time in 4 days window frame. What I am working right know is to reduce sugar and amount of condence milk ( i already have reduced to 1 can of condense milk and 3/4 cup of sugar). My husband likes to eat zapekanka without sour cream ( which makes zapikanka too sweet). Otherwise I love it. Thank you for delicious breakfast recipe. I am making zapekanka a night before. oh, plus my three kids ages 5, 3.8, and 2 like it. My older daughter always asking for bigger portion size. Definitely it is good for 2 days. Waiting for more delicious breakfast ideas and recipes.
