Russian bliny. Pancakes but actually not exactly… Now here’s the recipe of traditional Russian blinchiki or bliny as promised. Blinchiki or bliny (blini) Russians usually cook for breakfast and eat with sour cream or jam but blinis are also good as an appetizer . In this case Russians make different fillings for blinis - the most popular fillings are meat, mushrooms, cottage cheese etc. etc. Foreigners know our Russian bliny in their Royal variation – with caviar but telling you the truth Russians are hardly ever eat bliny (blini) with caviar, just in case to impress somebody! There are also many blini recipe variations, somebody make blinis batter with yeast but I prefer to cook them without adding yeast. Taste is pretty similar but it’s just about to save time. Blini recipe as well as ingredients are almost same as pancakes recipe but has some difference in preparation.
