It’s Sunday morning and we were in the mood for a light and delicious, authentically Russian blini brunch. Having just come back from a honeymoon in Venice, it was time to give ourselves a break from the super sweet breakfast rolls and treat ourselves to something healthier. We had some fresh berries and just a bit of milk left from the cappuccinos we made earlier that morning.

Blinis are a totally traditional, and easy-to-make Russian dish. Using 100% natural, simple ingredients you can make a long or short stack of delectable Russian blini. See below for a complete list of ingredients and easy to follow instructions.

Check out our video for a Russian blini recipe.

We used fresh berries as filling and topped it with a dollop of sour cream. Other sweet options include jams, preserves, poached apples, pears, or fresh apricots and peaches. Blinis are also delicious with savory fillings like ground turkey or chicken meat, cottage and farmer cheese, or even braised cabbage.

Take the time to create a delectably memorable experience and enjoy a light Russian blini brunch this weekend, or any day of the week!
