Blini are a must during Maslenitsa, but they make a delicious breakfast on any day.

– 4 c. all-purpose flour.
– 2 c. buttermilk.
– 1 egg.
– ½ tsp. salt.
– 1 tbsp. sugar.
– ½ to 1 c. warm water (optional).
– sunflower oil for fryin.


Step 1:Place flour in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add buttermilk, beating well with a spoon.
Step 2:Add egg, salt, and sugar and stir until blended. Mixture should be the consistency of pancake batter. If mixture is too thick, stir in ½ c. warm water. Set batter in a warm place for 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 3:3. Lightly grease a small frying pan with 1 tsp. oil. Heat pan for several seconds over medium heat. Pour ¼ c. batter into pan, quickly swirling pan so a thin, even layer covers the bottom. (If batter has thickened, add a little more warm water to mixture in bowl and beat well.) When edge of pancake lifts easily from pan (about 2 to 3 minutes), carefully flip over with a spatula.
Step 4:When other side lifts easily from pan, remove pancake, place on a plate, and cover with a cloth towel. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil to the pan when necessary. Serve warm

Note : * Serve blini with tasty toppings such as butter, sour cream, jam, fresh berries, ricotta cheese, smoked fish, or caviar.
