BLINI - RUSSIAN PANCAKES
This recipe was given to me by my Russian teacher/neighbor. It is tried and true, and my family loves it! Cooking time really depends on how many skillets you are using! Many years ago when I first started making the blini, I used 1 skillet and it took forever to use up all the batter. Now I use 4 skillets and the time goes by quickly. I have substituted coconut oil and it tastes delicious, but it tends to harden if the batter is cold. Batter can be refrigerated for later use. Serve hot with sour cream and/or jelly.

- Mix eggs, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Add milk, flour, and oil. Mix until batter is smooth and thin.
- Heat 2 small nonstick skillets over medium heat. Lightly oil the skillets. Pour in enough batter to just cover the bottom of each skillet. Tilt the pans to spread batter evenly.
- Lift the blini carefully when edges start to brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is browned, about 1 minute more. Stack blini on a plate.

Russian bliny. Pancakes but actually not exactly... Now here's the recipe of traditional Russian blinchiki or bliny as promised. Blinchiki or bliny (blini) Russians usually cook for breakfast and eat with sour cream or jam but blinis are also good as an appetizer . In this case Russians make different fillings for blinis - the most popular fillings are meat, mushrooms, cottage cheese etc. etc. Foreigners know our Russian bliny in their Royal variation - with caviar but telling you the truth Russians are hardly ever eat bliny (blini) with caviar, just in case to impress somebody! There are also many blini recipe variations, somebody make blinis batter with yeast but I prefer to cook them without adding yeast. Taste is pretty similar but it's just about to save time. Blini recipe as well as ingredients are almost same as pancakes recipe but has some difference in preparation.

- In a medium bowl whisk kefir, eggs, salt and sugar, 1-2 minutes would be enough, just to blend the ingredients.Add 4-5 tablespoon flour and blend well.
- Measure a teaspoon of a baking soda (may be a bit less, not a big deal) and pour it into a tablespoon, slake baking soda with a vinegar (about a half teaspoon) and add fizzy mixture to batter. Whisk just a little bit. Mixture should have a sour cream consistence.
- Now add milk and whisk well (2-3 more minutes), pour 2 tablespoon oil, stir by spoon or whisk and the batter is ready. It should be a bit stiffer as milk/kefir consistency.
- Heat the frying pan with 1-2 tablespoon of oil, ladle (usually 1 non full soup ladle per one blinchik) the batter and pour into hot pan. Tilt the pan rapidly to spread the batter out evenly. It's OK if there are some places here and there on the pan left uncovered , it's much worse if you ladle more batter. Your blinchik should be VERY thin!
- When the edges are crisp looking (1-1.5 minutes approximately) slide a spatula carefully under the blin or just hook the edge of blin with a knife and flip it over by hands. Cook for about 1 minute on the other side.
- Eat the first one by yourself as it usually looks unattractively :) As the saying goes, you must spoil before you spin!
- There is a saying in Russia as the first blin is always poor, the second one you should give to your friends and only the third one is yours. When all of your blini are fried and if any of them are still left uneaten you may serve them with sour cream or your favorite jam! Enjoy!

EASY BLINI (RUSSIAN PANCAKE)
I love these bite-sized pancakes because they make perfect appetizers. Top blini with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, or even caviar. Add a sprig of dill and they are sure to impress. My children also love eating these plain too!

- Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
- Whisk 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk, egg, and 1 tablespoon melted butter together in a separate bowl. Mix into the flour mixture until batter is fully combined.

Flip and continue cooking until brown, about 1 minute more. Lay on plate lined with a paper towel to help soak up excess butter. Repeat with the remaining batter.

- Beat together the milk and the eggs. Stir in the salt and the sugar and mix well. Add the baking soda and citric acid.
- Blend in the flour. Add the vegetable oil and pour in the boiling water, stirring constantly. The batter should be very thin, almost watery. Set the bowl aside and let it rest for 20 minutes.
- Melt a tablespoon of butter in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Pick the pan up off the heat. Pour in a ladleful of batter while you rotate your wrist, tilting the pan so the batter makes a circle and coats the bottom. The blini should be very thin.
- Return the pan to the heat. Cook the blini for 90 seconds. Carefully lift up an edge of the blini to see if it's fully cooked: the edges will be golden and it should have brown spots on the surface. Flip the blini over and cook the other side for 1 minute.
- Transfer the blini to a plate lined with a clean kitchen towel. Continue cooking the blini, adding an additional tablespoon of butter to the pan after each 4 blini. Stack them on top of each other and cover with the kitchen towel to keep warm.
- Spread your favorite filling in the center of the blini, and fold three times to make a triangle shape. You can also fold up all 4 sides, like a small burrito.
