It’s Maslenitsa week in Russia – blini and blinchiki, butter and cheese and all winter fun. Every year I’m looking for new recipes and every year find something special. Like these thin pancakes or blinchiki with mashed potato. They are easy to make (with some knowledge of blinchiki or crepes).
Sometimes I stuck on something… edible. Like breakfast sandwiches (coming soon), or borscht variations, or Maslenitsa blini, or – now – pancake mixes. I made oatmeal mix, buckwheat mix, bran mix, and much more. Today I used chocolate rye pancake mix (inspired by Coffee and Quinoa) for my pancake roll. It’s really a giant rectangular pancake from griddle, rolled with ricotta and strawberry filling.
