So airy, light and delicious are these yeast oladi. In addition, they are vegan and easy to make with few ingredients. The oladushki are ideal for breakfast, as a snack between meals or with sweet dips for dessert. You can find a detailed vegan yeast oladi recipe with exact quantities and step-by-step instructions here at the very bottom.
The yeast oladi are vegan. They do not use animal products, such as milk, kefir or egg. The dough for these Russian pancakes is prepared with water and without eggs.
But the oladushki are guaranteed to be tasty not only for vegans. Because they are incredibly airy, light and soft. Their taste is sure to convince everyone at the dinner table.
The dough for these oladushki is stirred with yeast. It is not a classic yeast dough, which has a firm consistency, but a viscous dough. Nevertheless, it can rise normally if you give it time to do so.
I used fresh yeast for the vegan oladyi recipe. Dry yeast works just as well. For my recipe you need 9 g of it. You can also dissolve dry yeast in water together with sugar.
The yeast oladushki are very fluffy. Especially fresh, straight from the pan, they are delicious. Just let them cool down a bit, so you don’t burn yourself.
Yeast dough consistency important
Just like the classic oladi recipe, the right consistency of the dough is very important. Even though it is a yeast dough.
The dough for the vegan oladyi must be viscous. It should not be too runny, but it should not become solid either. In any case, the oladi yeast dough must be much thicker than the batter for classic blini or vegan blini.
If you use too little flour, so that the dough becomes too runny, your oladyi might not rise enough when baked and become flat. If your dough gets too thick, the oladushki might taste too firm and not fluffy.
Therefore, you should add flour to the yeast mixture in portions, checking the consistency of the yeast dough each time.
You can do this, for example, by “gathering” the dough into a ball-like shape in the center of the bowl with a wooden or tablespoon and then observing it. If it flows slowly in the bowl, its consistency is just right.
How to serve and store vegan Russian pancakes?
The vegan yeast oladushki taste best directly from the pan, when they are still warm. Then they are really fluffy, soft and fresh.
The yeast oladyi are ideal for breakfast. But they are also perfect as a snack between meals and to take with you on the go. Also, you can serve them for dessert after dinner.
The yeast oladi taste delicious both sweet and savory. Serve them with

How to make vegan yeast oladi: tips and tricks
Use lukewarm water for the recipe so that the yeast dough can rise faster. However, it must not be hot in any case.
You can use dry yeast instead of fresh yeast. For the recipe below you need 9 g of it.
The amount of flour given in the recipe may vary. Add the flour in batches to the other ingredients until the dough reaches the right consistency. It should be viscous and slowly melt in the mixing bowl after you “gather” it into a ball-like shape with a spoon in the center of the bowl.
Keep carefully wiping off the liquid formed on the pan lid with a kitchen towel so it doesn’t get into the pan. Otherwise, hot vegetable oil will splash and you could burn yourself.
