Blini with caviar

Yes, writing that title just made me feel a bit like royalty. In reality, I had to use the remaining caviar from the New Year dinner and thought it would be a great breakfast. Blini are really "pan cakes" since I am not really sure what defines a "real" blini.

Blini (makes about 20)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar (I like the contrast of sweet and salty with caviar)
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • a touch of vanilla sugar

Whisk eggs and add the remaining ingredients. The consistency should be about that of a pancake batter. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and drop tablespoonfuls into hot oil, on medium-high heat. Flip when desired color is reached. (This is very quick!) When the other side is browned, place on a plate with a paper towel to absorb some of the oil. Serve hot with a bit of sour cream, caviar and dill or chives, whatever you fancy. Or eat with your favorite jam.
