The recipe I am offering today is a hybrid between Russian traditional blinis (spelled in English as blintz), thin pancakes similar to French crepes, and small puffy pancakes (called olad'i in Russian). This recipe was born by trial and error, and it appears a little different each time. What makes it so attactive are the easiness and speed. Fast and easy, but extremely satisfying. That's what we need, don't we? Let's begin.
What you need:
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup plain buttermilk
1 cup flour
0.5 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
0.5 -1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp olive oil for batter + oil for frying
8-10" diameter skillet (nonstick works fine)
|Cosistency of the batter: thin enough|
to spread easily on a skillet
|Relax - they shouldn't be perfect. :) |
Serve hot with cold sour cream and jam for a sweet tooth or with caviar and salted salmon. Followed by a cup of coffee, these pancakes make a hearty treat for your lazy Sunday morning. Enjoy.:)
I think I told you all my secrets to get a good result.:) Just follow what I said, and you will be proud of yourself.
This is a basic recipe, you can alter it following your desires.
