Preparation time: 1 - 2 hours

Cooking time: < 10 minutes

Serves: 4


  1. Dissolve 5g of yeast in 75ml of room temperature milk.

  2. Put 75g of buckwheat flour into a bowl and make a well in the center.

  3. Pour in the yeast and milk mixture, whisk into the flour and then let the mixture stand somewhere warm for 45 minutes.

  4. After 45 minutes, warm another 50ml of milk and whisk in 1 egg yolk. Add this mixture to the first and combine well before leaving to stand for an additional 45 minutes.

  5. Whisk the egg white to form stiff peaks and then fold gently into the mixture. Season with a pinch of salt.

  6. Lightly oil a large frying pan and heat gently. Add small amounts of the mixture to the pan to make individual blinis and gently cook on each side for about 1-2 minutes, until they are lightly golden.
