Who said that blini were made only for Pancake week? That’s not the truth. «Laced» piping hot pancakes with sour cream, honey or fantasy sauce are desired at every season. There are a lot of blini recipes. Most of all I like thin pancakes impregnated with aroma honey and stuffed with home-made cottage cheese − it’s rather good combination! And what about adding bitter-pleasant spicy cowberry sauce?
Blini with cottage cheese and cowberry sauce
250 ml milk
250 ml water

Mix milk, water, oil, sugar and salt in the bowl. Add the flour slowly and beat the mixture well using mixer.
Add the egg and beat well.
Preheat the skillet with oil to medium. Pour about 2 tbsps of batter into a hot pan to form pancakes. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side.
For cottage cheese filling:
500 g cottage cheese
4 tbsps sour cream
2 tbsps sugar
¼ tsps vanilla sugar
Mix cottage cheese with sugar and vanilla sugar well, add sour cream and mix once more time.
For cowberry sauce:
250 g cowberry

Stuff the pancakes with cottage cheese and pour the sauce.
