Whisk the flour, milk, egg, and salt together to make the blini batter.

Add 1 tsp butter to a frying pan (pref non-stick) on a low-medium heat.

Add small amounts of batter to the oan to create little circles (I used to measured tsp to help with consistency).

Once they start to get some bubble on top, flip over to finish cooking.

Repeat until you have used all of the mixture and set aside.
