Various types of pancakes are very popular in Russia. They could be thin or thick, large or small, with yeast or without, served with jam, butter, honey, berries, caviar, cured or smoked fish, stuffed with meat, eggs, onion, potatoes, or mushrooms.
Pancakes could be served not only for breakfast or brunch. Stuffed with meat or mushrooms they are very good for dinner.
Lately I’ve been seeing a trend that savory pancakes with various fillings are gaining popularity in the United States. I’m happy because it’s a new chapter in the American cooking, it is a new culinary Klondike.
