You know life is great when youre eating this. ClassicRussian Kefir Crepes, or as we call them bliny, served with caviar. These thin Russian KefirCrepes are my favorite weekend breakfast. Slavic people love their bliny and evenhave a holiday dedicated to it, called Maslenitsa. Its when everybody makes and eats blini with whole bunch of different fillings for a week. Very healthy, I know!
There are manytraditional ways to serve them. Sweet or savory. Try them with smoked salmon, jelly, sour cream, cream cheese, honey, condensed milk or with everything above. Alternatively, you can stuff them with fillings and roll into little burritos. Not countingthe amount of bliny youve eaten is another Russian tradition.
Blinyhave a reputation forbeing difficult to make. There is even a common statementin Russian, the first blin always comes out as a lump, meaning do not get discouraged if your first effort is less than perfect, eventually youll get a hang of it. Especiallywith modern non-stick skillets making bliny is not hard at all. All it takes is a little practice and patience. And if you quickly eat your first lumpy blin â€“ no one will notice it wasntperfect!
The batter for these Russian Kefir Crepes is a piece of cake mix some kefir with eggs, a pinch of sugar and salt. Its slightly heated on the stove and then mixed with flour and the rest of the ingredients. This technique is used in choux batters similar to the one in eclais. In Russia we call them zavarnie bliny. ThenÂ mix the batter with hot boiling water and a pinch of baking soda. This will give our crepes a beautiful silkyÂ consistency and more bubbles. Mix in the oil and you are ready to go. Erraza!
Preheat 2 non-stick pans over medium-high heat and grease it with a little knob of butter. I prefer to use 2 skillets at the same time as it makes things go much faster. hen the pans are hot, working one at a time, pour in about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter, depending on the size of your pan, into one side of the pan and swirl it quickly to cover the entire pan with a thin layer of batter.
As a first-generation American, with both of my parents having immigrated to the US from Russia in the 90's, I grew up with a relatively unique palette. While my friends ate chicken noodle soup and hot dogs, my mother prepared borschtand kotletifor my brother and me. Although bringing these foods to elementary school was cause for embarrassment, I have always been proud of my heritage. Educating and sharing something so inherent to my life with others is extremely rewarding and offers an irreplaceable sense of community.
Food is often a definitive aspect of any culture. However, certain cuisines are considerably more represented and more popular in America than others. Russian cuisine in America is extremely underrepresented, and restaurants serving authentic and enjoyable Russian food are often difficult to find.
Russian foods were a staple of my childhood diet, and blinchiki, or blintz, were by far my favorite dish. These thin pancakes are perfect for breakfast with sweet spreads, or for lunch with a savory side dish. Take a break from Bisquick mix, and expand your palette with authentically Russian blintz.
Next Sunday brunch, try skipping the pancake mix and exploring the flavors of another culture with authentic Russian blintz. My favorite way to eat these is with honey and a dollop of sour cream in the center. I would recommend folding the blintz up into a quarter; it tastes delicious and is easy to eat. Add fresh fruit or fruit preserves for the perfect breakfast, or even eat them plain.
Extremely underrepresented in the American restaurant industry, Russian cuisine offers delicious, cheap, and carb-tastic comfort food. Widen your palette and your cooking skills with this recipe, and beware these go quickly!

Traditionally,Russian blini is made with yeasted batter, which is left to rise and thendiluted with cold or boiling water/milk. When diluted with boiling water, they are referredto as zavarniye blini and were baked in aRussian oven. Though the blini are pan-fried they are cooking of blini is still referred toas baking in Russian.
In one of my favorite Soviet movies frankly, one of my favorite movies of any origin and era Moscow Doesnt Believe in Tears, the main character is introduced as Georgiy Ivanovich, also known as Goga, also known as Gosha, also known as Yuriy, also known as Gora, also known as Zhora. It seems to me, that similar fate befell Russian blini, also known as blinis, also known as blinchiki, also known as blintzes. What we are making today is blinchiki with tvorog, but lets get the verbal confusion out of the way first.
It all starts with blin, a Russian-style crepe singular! But who wants a singular blin, anyways? What you want is a stack of blini plural so buttery that you could bury your face in them with no shame or regrets. What you shouldnt have are blinis, simply because they are grammatically incorrect, albeit refer to the same exact thing. Making a plural form of something thats already plural is a no go.
Now, blinchiki are not just another name for blini, blinchiki are structurally different. They are blini with a filling inside. And when it comes to blintzes, I must say I am not the person you should ask, because blintzes are Jewish, although they seem to be awfully similar to Russian blinchiki with tvorog both are thin crepes stuffed with cheese and fruit compote and double-fried. Ive heard blintzes can be deep-fried, which has never happened to blinchiki, so lets leave it at that.
I add boiling hot water to the batter at the very end a trick Ive heard so much about and was curious to try. The result is more porous blini that soak up butter, sour cream or what have you beautifully.
