Yields4 ServingsPrep Time2 hrsCook Time15 minsTotal Time2 hrs 15 mins

Adapted from Luke Thomas

 120 ml milk
 15 g yeast
 1 tsp sugar
 120 g flour (wholemeal)
 2 eggs, seperated
 60 g butter

Heat the milk until warm to the touch then add the yeast and sugar and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast has activated.


In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, egg yolks, and the milk mixture and stir until it forms a thick batter. Cover the bowl and let sit for 40 minutes.


In a second bowl whisk the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks.


Whisk a small amount of the whipped whites into the blini batter to loosen it, and then carefully fold in the rest using a spatula.


Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add butter then spoon small circles of batter into the pan.


When the tops of the pancake bubble (1-2 minutes) flip them and cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes.


Serve topped with whipped cream, smoked salmon, or other additions.
