Share recipe





  • 85g of plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 150ml of milk
  • 115g of mashed potatoes, warm
  • 25g of cream cheese, preferably St Killian
  • clarified butter, or vegetable oil

To serve

To make the blinis, place the flour in a bowl with the salt and nutmeg. Stir in the egg and egg yolk, then whisk in the milk until the mix is smooth
Ensuring the potato is free from lumps, add to a pan or microwave and gently warm through. Fold the warm potato and the cream cheese into the batter to combine, cover and leave to rest in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes
To cook the blinis, add a dash of clarified butter or vegetable oil to a non-stick pan. Place on a medium heat and add a level tablespoon of the batter to the pan for each blini. Cook until golden on the bottom, then carefully turn over and cook to achieve a uniform colour all over
  • clarified butter, or vegetable oil
Remove the blinis from the pan and place on kitchen towel to absorb any excess oil. Repeat until all of the batter has been used
Serve the caviar in a bowl over ice, with a quenelle of the sour cream on the side and a plate of the blinis
