    **Jubes**'s Note:

    Blini are small leavened buckwheat pancakes, originally form Russia. They are a great base for many a canape. Traditionally they are served topped with sour cream and caviar. Great to make some as a starter or finger-food at a party. Can top with your favourite toppings and have a few different toppings. These will keep for a couple of days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature before adding toppings. Serve at room temperature. These can be made gluten free. Buckwheat does not contain gluten.

      These tasted a lot better than the shop ones so I reckon this is going to become my blini recipe! I didn't use the buckwheat flour but they tasted fine without. What could be a better starter than blini with sourcream and smoked salmon????:-)!

      These tasted fine for pancakes. The blinis I have had in the past were a bit thinner than these. This recipe came out as traditional pancakes rather than slightly more crepe-like. We served them with blueberry preserves as the dessert for a Russian-themed meal.
