Blinis, or Russian Pancakes, are a thin pancake typically made from buckwheat flour and served with savory garnishes such as sour cream, caviar, or butter. This recipe for Sourdough Blinis uses a mixture of the traditional buckwheat flour and regular wheat flour. Sweetened with agave nectar, these blinis incorporate both yeast and a sourdough starter to give them their unique light texture and taste. Thin and flavorful, these tasty Sourdough Blinis are a must try.

Ingredients

  • 250 milliliters milk
  • 3/4 tablespoon yeast
  • 185 grams sourdough starter
  • 85 grams flour
  • 70 grams buckwheat flour (or 60 gr. if sugar was used)
  • 1 teaspoon agave (or 1 1/2 tsps. sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat the milk and add the yeast, stirring until it dissolves completely. Add the sourdough starter and mix well. Add the flour and buckwheat flour along with the agave.
  2. Cover the batter and allow to rise until doubled in volume and bubbly, approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Separate the eggs and add the yolks to the batter. Set aside for 1 hour.
  4. Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks and fold into the batter.
  5. Heat a flat skillet and melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Ladle the batter onto the skillet, creating small rounds. Let cook for a few seconds on one side before flipping, then wait a few seconds more and removing from the pan.
  6. Keep warm until serving.

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous making this recipe as I did not know how it would turn out. However, this recipe is truly one of a kind and had one of the most palatable tastes that I have ever experienced. It was infused with flavor and made your mouthwater by just smelling it. I will be making this 4 star recipe again very soon.
