Blini or blinchiki are thin pan-sized Russian pancakes. They are much thinner and wider than American-style pancakes but not as thin and wide as crepes.
They are tasty and versatile. Often served with sour cream and jam. Or stuffed with a sweet or a savory filling.
These are lightly sweetened, soft, and very delicate. We often enjoy them with maple syrup, fresh fruit, or a dollop of sour cream.
Blini are normally served immediately or at room temperature
