Simple Blini


A classic combination: caviar and blini. Our recipe is for a simple blini with just three ingredients that can be whipped up in no time and enjoyed right away. Once you have your blini, preparation is simple: a spoonful of caviar and enjoy! NOTE: you can replace with gluten- and dairy-free alternatives in same amounts.

Makes 15 blini.


  • 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour (or you can use equal parts all-purpose and buckwheat)

  • 1/2 cup of slightly warm whole milk

  • 4 tablespoons of butter (separated)

Step 1:

Combine flour and milk in a medium size mixing bowl. 

Step 2:

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and combine with other ingredients in mixing bowl. Gently mix.

Step 3:

Heat up skillet and coat surface with remaining butter. In batches, add batter in 1 tablespoon portions. Do not overcrowd pan. Flip when bubbles appear and cook for about 1 minute more until browned on both sides. Keep in a low oven and until ready to serve.
