Recipe by amp51

This is the blin recipe my great grandomother made for me as a young child. I've had blini topped with caviar, smoked salmon, lemon juice and powdered sugar, maple syrup, and my favorite, blackberry jam and sour cream. Just double the recipe up depending on how many blin you want to make.
