Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Dissolve the yeast in 3 cups of warm (80-95 degrees Fahrenheit) milk. Add half a tablespoon of sugar, tablespoon of salt, egg yolk and molten butter.
  2. Stir, then add half the flour and knead the dough.
  3. Cover the pan with the dough with cloth or towel and leave it in a warm place for 1.5-2 hours, or until the volume of the dough is doubled.
  4. Mix in the rest of the milk, which must be heated to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, then add the rest of flour and sugar. Pour in well-whipped egg white.
  5. Knead the dough again and leave it until it rises.
  6. Heat an oiled frying pan. With a large ladle pour the dough (it should be liquid) in the center so it makes a circle.
  7. When the bottom of the blin is ready (the edges of the blin have separated from the pan and are pointing upwards), turn it over.
  8. After it is ready, put the blin on a large plate and start making the next one.
