Preparing for Sinai
This is the Torah from Sinai, or at least as given by Adele in a Shavuot about forty years ago. I wrote out this recipe card in the 1980’s.
The following is the torah sh’baal peh – the oral tradition of blintz making.
Bletlach or pancakes
Mix and pour
Trim if needed
stack on tea towel
Cover bletlach with tea towel and make filling.
You also want to add some, but not a ton of sugar. I think I added just over a table spoon. This isn’t an American dessert. It’s slightly sweet but not cloying. You can also add freshly grated orange rind or some cinnamon. This time I added just vanilla and a bit of orange rind.
Get yourself set up with all the things you need. Put the bletle down cooked side up.
add filling to the middle
Roll from the bottom
Place in a pan for frying later.
Once they are all rolled up fry seam side down first.
Threaten your children with death if they threaten to steal any before Shavuot begins. Or you can gently remind them that stealing is one of the mitzvot given at Sinai.
