Perfect Blintz Batter

READY IN: 36mins




  • In a medium bowl lightly beat eggs, then whisk in water, milk, salt, 2 teaspoons sugar and vanilla (if using) until well blended.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder, then stir into the egg ingredients; whisk until thick (the batter should resemble thick unwhipped whipping cream).
  • Stir in melted butter.
  • Let the batter sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes or until it comes to room temperature and the bubbles settle.
  • Lightly butter a 8-inch skillet on medium heat.
  • Add in about 3-4 tablespoons batter and swirl to coat the bottom of the skillet.
  • Cook until the bottom is set and light browned (these will cook very fast!).
  • Flip the blintz over and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.
  • *NOTE* You can cool these and then place on a baking sheet, freeze them then transfer to a plastic bag.
