Blini is Russian mini pancakes popular in Scandinavia. They differ from regular Scandinavian pancakes by raising them with yeast. Should you make real blinds, there should be buckwheat flour in the batter, and you will get pancakes that taste great served with chopped raw onions, crème fraîche and capelin* roe or smoked salmon and sour cream.

A Blinis

Blini (Russian: блин, blin, plural блины, bliny) are Russian pancakes with long traditions. “Blinis is a symbol of the sun, beautiful days, good crops, happy marriage and healthy children,” wrote the Russian author Aleksandr Kuprin. Blinis symbolizes the sun and represents a very important part of a festival, which celebrates that the long winter is over: “Maslenitsa”, pancake week.
