Blini are the traditional Russian pancake. I say pancake - they are more like a crepe - infact - if you can make crepes- you can do this with ease. The key is having the right pan. You NEED a non stick pan - I prefer a 6 or 8 inch pan - you can find them easy - but get a quality brand. The next step... they are best cooked over gas - it gives the best deliver of heat - and makes that special smell in the kitchen that tells you the yummy is coming.

This recipe will make about 12 blini - you will…
