Blinis (buckwheat Pancakes) With Sour Cream And Caviar


  • 2 cups nonfat milk, warmed
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • One and one-third cups all-purpose flour
  • One-half cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • One-half cup sour cream
  • One-fourth cup black caviar


  • In 1 cup of milk, dissolve the yeast and add 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour. Place the mixture in a warm place until it rises and double in size. Add the rest of the warmed milk. Sift in the remaining all-purpose and the buckwheat flour. Add the sugar, 2 egg whites, and butter. Beat until smooth. Set aside to rise until doubled in size. Knead it lightly, and let it rise again.
  • Whisk the remaining egg whites until frothy and add to the mixture. Heat a nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick spray and make 12 pancakes. (These will be thicker than normal pancakes.) Place 2 teaspoons of sour cream on each pancake. Top with caviar.
