Cheese Critters

Is there a recipe you’ve always feared of making? Have you tried it or does it just seem way too complicated? I can honestly say I’m generally quite fearless in the kitchen. To me, recipes are for the most part a set of instructions. And I’m good with following instructions. You read, you measure, you chop/mix/whatever… and eventually you get to eat. My favorite! But then there were blini…

…making them scared me. Seriously scared me. Blini (Russian crepes) is absolutely my most favorite breakfast. I just love these buttery crepes dipped in sweet condensed milk or sour cream with jam. Love. So a few years back (when I had very little interest in cooking actually, so this memory surprises me), I asked my mom to show me how to make them.


  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups of milk (or heavy cream for more indulgent blini)

  • 1T sugar

  • 1/2t salt

  • approx. 2 cups of flour 

  • 2T canola or vegetable oil + more for oiling the pan

40 Mins                 5 Servings

1. Break 2 eggs. It's ok to make some mess.
