About this recipe: The delicious blinis or mini pancakes are delicious served warm with smoked salmon, tzatziki or hummus. They can be made in advance, then frozen or refrigerated. All you need to do is warm them through before serving.


Makes: 12 blinis

  • 1/2 litre milk
  • 10g fresh yeast
  • 200g buckwheat flour
  • 100g plain flour
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Salt to taste

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat the milk until just warm and stir in the yeast.
  2. Pour both flours into a bowl and make a well. Add the yolks in the centre of the flour and mix. Add the milk and yeast misture, stir, then set aside for 3 hours in a warm place.
  3. Whisk the egg whites until stiff then fold in the mixture.
  4. Lightly grease a frying pan, and drop small amounts of batter in the pan until you have the exact size you want for the blinis. Cook for 1 minute, turn over, cook for another 30 seconds or a minute, then transfer to a hot serving plate (if you want to eat them right away).
