Oladushki are one of two types of pancakes known to Russian cuisine; they are the thicker ones – the other being the thinner crepe-like blini.
Oladushki are Russian pancakes that are essentially made of flour, eggs and water.
Instead of water, and to give a creamier consistency, you can use kefir, which is a sour milk product traditional to Russian cuisine.
But rarely are these the only ingredients; oladushki are also usually cooked with an assortment of toppings or added ingredients and can be either savory or sweet.
In this case they can be served with other sweet garnishes, such as syrup, whipped cream or strawberries, for added flavour.
Usually the cook prepares them freshly for the customer. They are sold on a small cardboard (sometimes plastic) plate and come with a small disposable fork the size of a pastry fork.
They looks similar to Poffertjes, a traditional Dutch battertreat. Resembling small, fluffy pancakes, they are made with yeast and flour. They have a light, spongy texture.
Typically, poffertjes are sweet treat, served with powdered sugar and butter, and sometimes syrup or advocaat.
Poffertjes are not difficult to prepare, but a special cast iron pan or copper pan (also available in aluminium with Teflon coating) with several shallow indentations in the bottom is required.
