Never heard of blinchiki? No worries: We just learned about the Russian pancakes from Anna Gass’s cookbook, Heirloom Kitchen: Heritage Recipes and Family Stories from the Tables of Immigrant Women. The collection of recipes paints a picture of how migrant staples shaped the American foodscape as we know it. These blinchiki come from Emily, a woman from Bila Tserkva, Ukraine.
“Traditionally, blinchiki is a simple crepe-like pancake,” Gass writes. “However, Emily’s mother, Eva, always grated apples into the batter to make it a heartier dish. I never knew a four-ingredient recipe could taste so good! Emily makes these often for her grandchildren, and it’s their favorite after-school snack.” Gass recommends serving them with sour cherry sauce for a showstopping breakfast (or dessert).
