Russian Blini

Unfortunately I lost my old, favorite Blini recipe.  But this one is good and significantly easier…

2 cups 2% milk
3 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 packet yeast
1 Tbso sugar
1 1/4 cups flour

Heat milk to a medium warm temperature (not too hot!  you don’t want to cook the eggs!)

Mix in eggs, salt, sugar and flour.

Add yeast

Let sit at least 1/2 hour

Heat pan to medium (4.5 if your stove measures 1-10).  Butter the pan and ladle some batter on the pan.  You should have a thin layer of batter covering the bottom of the whole frying pan.  Cook for a minute or so, until bubbles appear on the surface.  Flip to the other side, and cook about half as long as the first side.  Remember, the first blin is for the bears, so adjust based on what happened with that one.

Serve the blini with condiments, some poplar ones are nutella, jam, sour cream, caviar or cheese, but you can put anything you want on them.
