This month the Bread Baking Babes are making Mlyntsi or Ukrainian thin pancakes or blini.
I usually try to post something humorous about the Babes or the bread or the Babes baking the bread or…. You get the idea.
Given the current, tragic, deplorable situation in Ukraine I’m not finding anything light-hearted to type.
My heart is pretty heavy.
Wonderful food and family traditions and the people who cherish them have a place in our hearts even when the physical places are destroyed.
For now we will cherish Ukrainian mlyntsi (blini).
Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, says the inspiration for this recipe came from a back issue of Saveur magazine. (I loved that magazine and also have all of the back issues.)
For added inspiration there is a (very) short story by Chekhov.
If you want to make the Mlyntsi yourself, and you can make it sweet or savory, topped with almost anything, (have fun) go to blog from OUR kitchen for the recipe and detailed instructions on how to do it. Plus you’ll find all the details of baking along this month.
As usual, the Babes all made it their own way….
That’s it for April
As always –
Stay Safe, Healthy & Patient.

It is indeed difficult to be at all light-hearted when thinking about what the world is doing to itself – in particular what is happening in and around Ukraine right now.
Many thanks, once again, for displaying all of our efforts to honour not just the Ukraine people, but these ancient Slavic traditions as well, to celebrate the coming of spring. Not to mention the hope for peace.
It’s horrible – and going to get worse, I’m afraid, So many people displaced or killed. But it’s important to keep the traditions alive to pass on when we finally have peace again.
