Welcome guests with the tiniest pancakes — a golden, corn-studded Canadian version of traditional Russian blini — and a glass of wine or, if you like, champagne.

  • Portion size 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg yoke
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup corn kernels
Garnish:
  • 2 oz smoked salmon
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 24 Dill sprigs

Method

In bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and pepper.

In separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg yolk and butter; pour over flour mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and corn. Stir just until flour is incorporated.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat; brush lightly with oil. Using tablespoonful (15 mL) batter for each corn cake and brushing skillet with oil as necessary, cook corn cakes for about 1 minute per side or until golden. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours; let come to room temperature before garnishing.)

Garnish: Cut salmon into 2- x 1/2-inch (5 x 1 cm) strips. Spoon scant teaspoonful (5 mL) sour cream onto centre of each corn cake. Top with salmon rosette and dill sprig.
