This is my twist on a traditional blintz souffle. It’s tender and delicious. Serve with strawberries in syrup, raspberry preserves, spiced peaches, and sour cream.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 (13 ounce) packages frozen cheese-filled blintzes
  • 6 egg whites
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Place the butter in 9x13 inch baking dish, and put into the oven until melted, about 3 minutes. Place the blintzes into the baking dish in a single layer on top of the melted butter.
  3. 3 Whip the egg whites in a bowl until they form soft peaks, about 5 minutes, and set aside.
  4. 4 Whisk together the egg yolks, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl until smooth. Use a rubber spatula or wire whisk to fold 1/3 of the whipped egg whites into the sour cream mixture. Gently run the spatula through the center of the bowl, then around the sides of the bowl, repeating until fully incorporated. Add the remaining whipped egg whites, folding just until incorporated. Pour the mixture over the blintzes in the baking dish.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until the eggs are set and puffy and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Chef's Notes

You can use either light or full-fat sour cream.


  1. I served mine with heated blueberry pie filling on the side- yum! This is even better than my mother-in-law's recipe but I'd call it Cheese Blintz Soufflé. I did find that there was some extra liquid in the bottom of the dish. My understanding is to use the blintzes frozen. Perhaps I'll try to thaw - Read more ...
  2. This recipe is wonderful! I will definitely make it again! I couldn't find cheese blintzes but maybe I looked in the wrong spot. Anyway I used crescent rolls from a can made them into rectangles added a cream cheese and sugar mixture rolled then up and put the into the oven to begin cooking while - Read more ...
  3. This is a delicious recipe that lends itself to many personal variations. For example I used cherry blintzes and substituted low fat sour cream and sweetener. The only change I really had to make was decreasing the baking time. In a convection oven the dish was definitely ready by 30 minutes. I would recommend anyone - Read more ...
  4. FF Sour Cream works fine too. If you can't find cheese blintzes you can substitute any other flavor. Or in a pinch if you can't find ANY blintzes use a can of pie filling underneath the souffle mixture. Then you'll need a spoon to dish it up-it'll be rather sloppy yet tasty.
  5. I made this for a house full of guests one morning. Everyone raved! The two year olds wanted more more. It was easy and delicious. My only problem was finding a store that carried cheese blintzes in our vacation community.
  6. I took the chance with no reviews and made this for my Sunday school class. I did mess up and bought strawberry filled crepes instead of cheese filled but these still turned out delicious. Two others asked for the recipe. All in all a huge hit.
