I don't really know why this is called a "blini". Looks like a pancake to me! According to my friendly online encylopedia, blini is supposed to be a thin pancake, similar to a crepe.
I think this cookbook must be wrong because these "blini's" are far from thin like a crepe. The batter was thick and there was no way I could make it thin and crepe like. Maybe I should write a note to the editor :)
We ate these for dinner one night. I made some savory stuff to eat my
The original recipe uses smoked salmon on top of these cornmeal blini's but I'm just not a smoked salmon type of gal. If you are, give it a try.
