2 Eggs

1 cup Milk

1/4 cup Melted Butter

Whisk Batter:

In a bowl, whisk together flour, eggs, milk, melted butter, baking powder, and a pinch of salt until you achieve a smooth batter.

Let It Rest:

Allow the batter to rest for about 30 minutes to ensure the Blini turn out light and airy.

Cooking Magic:

Serve Blini with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of fresh herbs, and, for the ultimate indulgence, a touch of caviar.

Blini offer a taste of sophistication in a simple pancake. Delight in the Russian tradition of savoring these delectable treats, whether for breakfast or a fancy soirée.
