Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 2


  • 7 oz whole milk plain yogurt Greek yogurt works great
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 medium-large apple sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 1/4 cups sunflower or vegetable oil for frying
  • ground cinnamon for serving


  • In a medium bowl, gently whisk the yogurt, egg, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Continue whisking, gradually adding the flour. Mix until you get a smooth and thick batter. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the batter rest for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat 1/4 cup of the oil on a large frying pan until the oil is hot and shimmering. Drop a small scoop (about three tablespoons) of the batter into the hot frying pan and top with the apple slice. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Repeat the same steps with the remaining batter, but don’t overcrowd the pan.
  • Cook the blinis until the bottom is crispy and golden brown and the top is not runny anymore. It will take a couple of minutes. Then flip each blini on the other side and fry for 2 to 3 more minutes, or until the apple becomes soft and caramelized. Transfer to a platter lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
