Blinis or Russian Buckwheat pancakes are earthy and delicious. These pancakes are traditionally served with caviar or smoked salmon. You can also go with sweet toppings like cream cheese, jams or sour cream.
Combine all the ingredients for the pancakes in a mixing bowl. Cover and set aside to rise for 1 hour.
Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle on medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with cooking spray and put about 2~3tbsps of batter; cook till bubbles come up to the surface, about 1~2 minutes. Carefully flip and cook for about a minute.
Keep the pancakes warm in a plate or an over while you make more pancakes with the remaining batter.
Serve warm with jelly, cream cheese, sour cream etc.
