What is a Blintz?

A blintz pronounced [BLIHNTS] is a tender, ultra thin pancake that can be made with any number of flours. The blintzes are rolled to enclose a sweet or savory filling. The fillings include cottage or ricotta cheese, fruit or meat mixtures. The blintzes are then sautéed until golden brown and served with sour cream. Sourdough blintzes are truly delicious. The ricotta cheese filling was super and the tayberry jam sensational.


Pronounced [BLEE-nee] Hailing from Russia, blini (singular, blin) are small, yeast-raised pancakes that are classically served with sour cream and caviar or smoked salmon. Blini are traditionally made with buckwheat flour, although lighter versions combine buckwheat and wheat flours. Blintz and blini are often confused as one and the same. Though they are similar, they are indeed different.
