Heat 1 cup milk to 105-F to 115-F degrees. Pour heated milk into a
large bowl and stir in yeast and 2 cups of flour. Mix until smooth.
Cover the bowl and set in a warm place for about 1-hour, or until the
batter has doubled in size. Stir down with a wooden spoon. Stir in
egg yolks, butter, sugar, salt and remaining flour, alternating with
remaining milk. Stir until mixture is almost smooth. Cover bowl and
set aside for 45-minutes to an hour, until the batter has doubled in
size, again. Stir down batter. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks and
gently fold into the batter.
For each pancake, pour about 1/3 cup of the mixture onto a griddle or
frying pan that has been lightly greased with vegetable oil. Fry over
medium heat for about 4-minutes, turning once, until pancake is golden
brown. Keep finished Blini in a warm oven while continuing to prepare
the remaining batter. Garnish each pancake with 1 Tbs. Caviar and/or
Sour Cream and roll up. Placed rolled Blini on a platter and serve.
