Buckwheat Crepe Blinis

Buckwheat Crepe Blinis


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Clarified Butter, plus more for brushing pan
  • Sour cream, drained, for serving
  • Caviar, for serving

Cooking Directions

    • Place both flours, milk, salt, eggs, and clarified butter in the jar of a blender. Puree until smooth.

    • Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    • Remove batter from refrigerator. Heat a 6-inch crepe pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush with clarified butter, and heat until very hot. Add a couple of tablespoons of batter, turning and swirling the batter in the pan to completely coat. Cook until brown on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip crepe with a spatula, and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter. As you continue, you will need to use less butter in the crepe pan.

    • Serve crepes with sour cream and caviar.
