How to Make Russian Pancakes
Recipe Type: Pancake, Breakfast, Appetizer
Cuisine: Russian
Stuffed with sweet or savory fillings, the pancake is an important part of Russian culinary culture. Here's how to make them.
  • 400 grams or 1¾ cups wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 800 ml or 3? cups milk
  • 100 ml or ½ cups cream (for lower calories intake use milk instead)
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • sunflower oil to fry
  1. In a bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. Mix eggs and sugar with a mixer.
  3. Add milk and cream while mixing.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture and blend until smooth. The consistency of the batter should be a bit thicker than cream.
  5. Heat two pans over high heat. Melt butter and add it to the batter. Blend until smooth.
  6. Pour a tiny bit of sunflower oil in both pans.
  7. Use a scoop to pour the batter in the middle of the pan. Tilt the pan from side to side while pouring, forming a circle with the batter.
  8. Flip the pancake over with a thin spatula, after the surface looks porous and sides are golden.
  9. Fry for half of the time you fried the first side.
  10. Repeat with the rest.
  11. You might want to put them in the warm oven (not more then 70 °C/160 °F) to keep them hot before serving.
