Bliny are a small version of pancakes made with eggs, flour, and milk or kefir (a fermented milk drink.) They are mostly eaten for breakfast with sour cream, honey, apple sauce or beets, but can also be served as a main if they are stuffed, or even as a dessert with sweet fillings. Another common topping is smoked salmon or boiled ham.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs, flour, 1 cup of buttermilk, baking soda, oil, sugar and salt with a whisk. It’s important to incorporate the liquid gradually to avoid lumps. When the mixture is smooth and lump free, add the remaining buttermilk.
  2. The consistency of the batter should be the same as of heavy cream. Let stand for 20 minutes. You should see small bubbles on the surface of your batter.
  3. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat and grease it with an odorless oil.
  4. With a ladle or a measuring cup, pour ½ cup of batter in the pan and tilt the pan slightly so the batter runs to the edges forming a thin and round crepe. Cook until the top of the crepe looks dry, then flip with a spatula and cook for 1 minute longer.
  5. Remove to a plate and spread with a little butter if desired. Repeat with the next crepe and continue cooking until all the batter is used. Stack the crepes on top of each other.
