A blini (sometimes spelled bliny) or, rarely, blin (more accurate as a single form of the noun) is a thick pancake, traditionally made frombuckwheat flour and served with sour cream, butter, caviar, and other garnishes. Should not be confused with blintzes ("blinchik" in Russian) aka crepes or Palatschinke.
Some English dictionaries record usage of the forms blin as singular and blini or bliny as plural, which correspond to the originally Russian forms, but some dictionaries consider this usage so rare in English that they do not mention blin at all and only record the widespread modern regular usage of blini for the singular and blinis for the plural, for example the American Heritage, MacMillan, and Vocabulary.comdictionaries. Some cookbooks and restaurants use blin and blintchick as in Russian to refer to crêpes.
Blintzes are a type of blini. They are thin, usually wheat-flour pancakes folded to form a casing (as for cheese or fruit) and then sautéed or baked.
