Day 3 of Maslenitsa. They say every household has their own pancake recipe. Here’s my (secret!) recipe of perfect blinis.

0.5 l kefir
1 egg
3-4 spoons sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
flour

Mix everything but flour (use whisker or electric mixer). Then add flour incrementally to get the desired consistence (the more flour, the thicker blini will be). Fry blinis on a well heated frying pan.

A little tip: for best results I use kefir that’s gone sour (I buy it about a week ahead and let it go sour). It gives blinis a tingly sour taste and also more bubbles. 🙂

The key ingredient in this is of course kefir. It’s a type of fermented milk. I know that you can get it in Germany and Austria. Hopefully in other countries too (maybe in Russian food stores?) In Austria I tried this one, I bought it for the Matryoshka packaging and it turned out surprisingly good!

If you try this recipe you must share your results with me. 😉
