Morning crepes

Crepes wake up… and washed by the morning light the tablecloth stretches itself over the table.

2 eggs
200 ml water

Blinis with greek youghurt and red currant caviar

Elegantly dressed… ceremoniously eccentric…
My exquisite wish:

- Delicious blini with the taste of the best “caviar”…

Blinis

Serves 8:

3 egg yolks
½ tbsp olive oil
3 dl warm milk
20 g yeast
2 g salt
75 g melted butter
250 g AP flour
3 egg whites
6 tbsp sugar

Dissolve yeast with warm milk.
In the mixer, with the dough hook attached, mix the flour with egg yolks, olive oil, warm milk, salt, butter and at last the previously dissolved yeast.
Whisk well until you have a thick batter, then cover the bowl with a clean cloth and leave it in a warm place for about 1 hour.
Whisk up the egg whites until they form stiff peaks and add the sugar.
Gently fold the meringue into the batter.
Cover with the cloth again and leave as before for another hour.
In a heavy-based pan in low heat with a bit of melted butter pour 1 tbsp of batter and let the blinis get golden brown on both sides.

…the first one usually doesn’t come up very well!

There are special blini pans that makes this process a lot easier, but a normal pan is also pretty good for this.

Traditionally, this russian “pancakes” are served with crème fraîche and caviar or smoked salmon. These I serve with red currants and sweetened greek youghurt.
