  • Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet in another. Whisk your wet ingredients into your dry ones.
  • Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium. Using a tablespoon, spoon small circles of the batter into the pan.
  • Once bubbles appear in the batter, flip! Continue until all your batter is cooked.


  • Once your Blinis have cooled, spoon a dollop of crème fraîche on top. Top with Caviar, and garnish with dill or chives.
  • Enjoy!
