Blini are small, yeast-leavened, buckwheat pancakes that originally come from Russia. Classically they are served with sour cream and caviar or smoked salmon.

You may have the opportunity to put your food-snob friends to shame some day when they ask for a single blini and you graciously say, “I’m sorry, did you just want one blin or two or three blini?” (Does it get any better than that???)
