Make the blinis
Blend all the ingredients for the pancakes with an electrical blender.
Put a heavy-based frying pan or an iron griddle over high/medium heat and wait until it is warm before cooking the pancakes
Pour the oil into a small cup and with the use of a brush grease lightly the pan
Pour the batter over the hot griddle making pancakes with 10 or 5 cm in diameter depending on your needs.
Once you see bubbles appearing through the batter, turn the pancakes on the other side.
When the pancakes are done and you removed them from the pan, brush the pan with oil again before pouring more pancakes to cook
