Yeasted Blini

These light and delicious Russian blini are leavened with yeast, which adds a complex tangy flavor and airy texture. Unlike many yeasted blini recipes, this one calls for only a single fermentation, saving you time without sacrificing results. (We know, because we tested it both ways.) Softly beaten egg whites, meanwhile, add even more lightness to the batter. The result is a perfect platform on which to heap sour cream (or crème fraîche) and caviar.
