Blinis with Crème Fraîche and Caviar

by Kate of Fork and Vine
(yields 12)
The blinis and creaminess from the crème fraîche add a nice balance to the salty, nutty flavor of the caviar. Caviar can be expensive, but a little bit can go a long way. Affordable andmore sustainable alternatives to Sturgeon Caviar are Paddlefish, Hackleback or Salmon Roe.You can find these from your local fish market or online at Marky’s (however, they get youwith shipping charges).


Ingredients
1 ½ cups of whole milk
1 ½ tablespoons super fine sugar
2 ½ teaspoons dry yeast
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
3 large eggs, lightly beaten

Crème Fraîche
1 oz Caviar

Directions:
  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk and sugar until just starting to bubble (not boil) aroundthe edge of the pan. Remove from heat and cool until just warm to the touch. Sprinkle yeaston top and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine, the flours and salt. Sift until fine. In a small saucepan, melt thebutter and stir in the milk mixture and then add melted butter and milk to flour mixture.
  3. Mix until smooth. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let rise until mixture has
    doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  4. After the batter has risen, incorporate the eggs and beat until smooth. Heat a cast iron panor griddle to medium and lightly grease. Pour several servings (small amount, silver-dollarsize) of batter into pan. 
  5. Once tiny bubbles appear, flip.
  6. Allow Blinis to cool slightly and then add a dollop of crème fraîche and a small spoonful ofcaviar.
