Russian Pancakes Oladi (Buttermilk Pancakes) | September 18, 2023


Prepare to be amazed by Oladi if you’re a fan of regular pancakes! These Russian Pancakes offer a delightful experience with their sweet aroma while cooking, the irresistibly crispy fried edges, and the fluffy, chewy interior. Once you take a bite, you won’t be able to resist their charm any longer.

Oladi: A Beloved Family Tradition

Oladi holds a special place in our hearts, as it’s a treasured family recipe passed down from my mother. Growing up in a village with an abundance of milk from our two cows, we always had buttermilk on hand for this pancake delight.

Similar to American buttermilk pancakes, Oladi are a Russian version that boasts a light and fluffy texture. The only distinction lies in how we cook them—using more oil in the pan for those delectably crispy edges.

In Russia, these delightful pancakes are also known as Blini. Blini are small and made from buckwheat flour. Traditionally served with melted butter, sour cream, and a choice of smoked salmon or caviar, they are a delightful treat for any occasion.
