Yield: 2 Servings
|1 teaspoon||Granulated sugar|
|2 teaspoons||Vegetable oil|
Heat ¾ of milk to 35C (about 95F). Add yeast till fully dissolved.
Add half of sugar, yolk, melted shortening - keep stirring. Add half of flour. Stir batter until smooth. Cover with cloth and let stand for 1-½ to 2 hours. It should rise to double its original size.
Mix, heat remaining milk to 50C (this would be about 120F, I think -- I'm just converting the Laakso temperatures in my head, and my Fahrenheit is a bit shaky), pour in. Fold in remaining four, sugar, and gradually, well-beaten egg-white. Cover with cloth and leave for 2-½ to 3-½ hours.
Brush large skillet with the vegetable oil. Heat until quite hot.
Spoon batter onto skillet to cover the surface. Turn blin over when one side is a nice golden colour. Serve hot.
(I use this to hold a filling of sour cream or cottage cheese and fruit preserves.)
