I just tried a recipe from the BBC food website:

bbc.co.uk blini recipe

Here is what I needed:


12.5g  yeast (1 sachet)
350g plain flour, sifted
500mL milk, lukewarm (I put more than needed from the original that was 300mL it worked wonders!)
2 egg yolks
a pinch of salt
150 mL milk, lukewarm
2 egg whites, whisked

Food processor, with whisk attachment, kitchen tissue, frying pan, extra oil for the pan.

How to proceed:

Sieve  225g  flour in the food processor bowl, add the sachet of dried yeast, mix well.

Add the 500 mL of pre warmed milk, and mix well.

Leave for 1-2H to rise, in a warm place, covered with plastic film (I kept everything in the food processor bowl very easy!). My batter was very thin, and became very frothy.

Separate the two egg yolks and whites. Whisk the whites with some salt in a separate beaker.

Add the remaining 115g of sieved flour and mix in the batter.

Add then the egg yolks, a pinch of salt, the 150 mL of warm milk k and mix together.

Add the whisked egg whites.

Let the preparation rest about half an hour, and when about to serve,
cook the blinis quickly in the same way as pancakes, in a hot oiled pan.

I re-oiled the pan using a kitchen tissue and bamboo sticks/tongs.

Keep warm on a plate using a clothe. Delicious!!!!
