The ‘Russian pancakes’ known as blini (блины) are made with yeasted dough, giving them a light, fluffy texture and a distinctive tang.
Blini can be stuffed with an endless variety of fillings, including a mixture of ground meat and diced vegetables or berries and cream cheese, although they’re often served simply, topped with sour cream, condensed milk or jam. Blini is also a traditional Russian accompaniment for caviar.
Rub the pan with butter or lard after frying every 4 blini. Don’t worry if the first few don’t turn out right; you’ll get the hang of it.
Suggested fillings: cooked ground meat, mashed potatoes with onion, berries, or chocolate sauce.
