Blini Recipe


Blini is the perfect plate on which to place a nice dollop of caviar. Perhaps just a touch of creme fraiche as well.

Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine the yeast and the warm water. Set the mixture aside for 15-20 minutes. Slowly add the all-purpose flour. Cover the mixture with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

Step 2

In a separate bowl combine the buckwheat, egg yolks, butter, salt, sugar and milk. Add the mixture to the dough. Stir well blend. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.

Step 3

Just before cooking, whip the egg whites until stiff. Fold into batter.

Step 4

Heat a greased heavy griddle over medium high heat. Drop the batter on the griddle by the tablespoon, cooking each pancake until browned on both sides.
