How to make it

  • Dissolve yeast in the 1/4 cup warm water. Mix egg yolks with sugar, salt and melted butter.
  • Stir in remaining water and add flour gradually blending smooth.
  • Beat egg whites stiff and fold into the mixture.
  • Cover bowl with cloth and let the mixture rise double in volume at room temperature - could be up to 2 hours plus.
  • Just before making blini, heat milk and pour over the blini batter
  • The amount of milk or liquid you add depends on the type of flour used.
  • Buckwheat flour makes a thicker batter and white flour a thinner batter. )
  • Mix well .
  • The batter should be fairly fluffy in texture buit quite pourable.
  • Let the batter rest/rise an additional 15 to 30 minutes,.
  • Cook blini in a hot buttered pan or griddle.
  • Ladle about 1/2 cup batter to make a 3 to 4 inch blini , or drop from a
  • tablespoon for smaller blini.
  • I suggest you do the smaller size blini as these pancakes may be very delicate depending on the type of flour you choose for the
  • recipe and it is easier to turn the smaller ones.
  • Serve blini with sour cream, melted butter or as desired.
  • Note: 100% buckwheat flour pancakes have a thicker spongier texture than do blini made with all white flour or combinations of both types of flour.
  • Buckwheat flour may be purchased at natural foods or health food stores.
