The Tsiolokovsky Family's - Blini
This Russian recipe page is in progress!

In the Star Trek sim , the USS Eagle, we play a variety of characters from different cultures and different worlds. A sim is an online role playing game. Ours is played in a chatroom. We type in text and play characters in a story.

 This is a page for the Chief Engineer's family and culture.  It is written as if she posted it. She is full blooded Russian and loathes cooking. Cooking for her is punching in some codes into the food processor or asking the Chef to make something for her when she is home sick. Of course, our head strong CENG won't admit it.

 If you would like information on our Star Trek RPG just email me or check out the rest of this web page with the links below. The recipe comes from an information disk that her baba (grandmother) sent her.

Russian Buckwheat Pancakes - Blini
from the Tsiolkovsky/ Tereshokova Family Recipe Database

Ask your cook to do the following:


2 cups milk, warmed
1 tablespoon yeast
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 cups buckwheat flour
2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar


1. Dissolve yeast in one cup tepid milk
2. Add one teaspoon of flour
3. Place mixture in a warm place free of drafts
4. Let rise until its size doubles
5. Add the remaining tepid milk, sifted flour, sugar, salt, melted butter, and egg yolks
6. Beat the mixture until it makes a smooth batter
7. Place it in a warm place free of drafts
8. Let rise until this doubles
9. Knead it slightly
10. Let it rise again
11. Repeat again if desired
12. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl
13. Add the egg whites to the mixture


1. Heat oil or butter in a frying pan
2. Add dollops of batter

Blini are thicker and should be thicker than American pancakes. More than just puny runny maple flavored cornsyrup is added on top! This is a serious pancake, comrade.

Serve with jam, sour cream, boiled eggs, chopped scallions and caviar of course!!

Blini- Another marvelous Russian invention, tavereesh!

Please email me if you try it and let me know how it went. Spaceebo!/ Thank you Enjoy!
