Blini (Russian Pancakes)

Blini (Russian Pancakes)



  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Buckwheat flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 cup Milk, warm
  • 2 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1 Egg, separated
  • Toppings of choice


  • Mix flours, salt and yeast in a large bowl and make a well in the center.
  • Pour in milk, mixing until smooth. Cover and let it rise until doubled, about an hour.
  • Stir in the melted butter and egg yolk. Whisk egg white in a separate bowl until stiff but not dry. Fold into batter; cover and keep aside for 20 minutes.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop quarter-size dollops of dough into pan without crowding. Cook for about a minute or until bubbles form and break. Turn and cook for about half minute.
  • Take out, cover and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve with toppings of choice.
