  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Buckwheat Blini
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salmon or trout roe
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sour cream
  • Mix the flour and the buckwheat flour. Add the sugar, salt, and yeast. Put the butter and milk into a small pot and cook until the butter has melted and cool, then whisk the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Cover with a plate or plastic wrap, and set it in a warm place to rise. When it is about doubled (about an hour and a half), whisk in the eggs.
  • You can use it now, or store it in the refrigerator for a day or so; it’s better on the second day, but be sure to give it a good stir before you heat your griddle.
  • Cook them on a butter-brushed pan about a minute on each side, and keep them in a 200° oven until the batter is entirely used up.
  • Serve them warm, topped with lots of sour cream and generous dollops of salmon or trout roe.
