2 3/4 cup buttermilk
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
7 ounces sour cream
1 tin caviar
freshly ground black pepper


1. In a large bowl, sift the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, butter, and the eggs and stir into the dry ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes.
