Cook and Tell: Sour Cream Blini

09 Apr

Have I mentioned that I am a big fan of anything that includes carbs? Well, I do. Pasta, breads, waffles, baked goods, anything in the pancake family. Like these blini that I decided to spoil myself and the hubby with.

Sour Cream Blini

I learned how to make blini from my Mom. She showed me how to turn leftover sour milk, kefir or sour cream into delicious blini. The great thing is that they are so easy and quick to make, and they magically fill my carb cravings. This time around I decided to make blini using sour cream as the base.

Sour Cream Blini
16oz Low-Fat Sour Cream
2 large Eggs
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
Vegetable Oil, for frying

Mix all the ingredients, except for vegetable oil, together. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Using a tablespoon (I used a regular soup spoon), scoop spoon fulls of blini mixture and place on the frying pan. Cook blini until golden brown on each side. The number of blinis will depend on how much mixture you use for each one.

Enjoy the blini warm or cold. I prefer my blini with raspberry or strawberry preserves.

    I love carbs too! I think my favorite way to enjoy blinis is topped with smoked salmon. I mean, how can you go wrong there? Yum!

    I love blini without anything… I can just gobble it just like that. But my mom make some Russian blinis with meet and rice stuffing that are my favorite.
