Blini

print   ·   T  T  

Blini are small, yeast-leavened, buckwheat pancakes that originally came from Russia. Classically they are served with sour cream and caviar or smoked salmon, jam and honey. They were traditionally prepared at the end of the winter to honour the rebirth of the new sun. This tradition was adopted by the Orthodox Church and is carried on to this day. The caviar filling is popular during Russian-style cocktail parties.
