Blintzes From Minsk

Here is the modified recipe we used to make our field of Sunflowers.  It is modified from How Mama Brought the Spring Our version is dairy-free

Ingredients - Wrappers
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 c coconut milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • butter for frying
Ingredients for Filling
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 TBS applesauce
  • 1 pkg silken tofu - drained well
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • hefty pinch of cinnamon
Preparing the Wrapper - Pour, Swirl, Sizzle, Flip
  • Combine eggs and milk, stir in flour and sugar.  beat until smooth
  • Melt butter in non-stick frying pan
  • Pour in about 3 TBS of batter (I use medium scoop - the same as I use to fill my muffin tins)
  • Swirl to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook until small air bubbles form on the top of the wrapper and the bottom is golden.  Do not turn over. Sizzle
  • Flip the wrapper brown side up onto a tablecloth or paper towels. 
  • Repeat until all the batter is used up
Preparing the filling and blintzes
  • Combine all filling ingredients and mix well
  • With the wrappers brown side up, place a scoop of filling in the center of each one
  • Fold the wrapper toward the middle from opposite sides covering the filling roll the blintz from the bottom
  • Fry the blintzes seam-side down turning them once to brown both sides
  • serve with jam. 
The original recipe says it makes ten but we made closer to twenty.
