Another way of serving the smoked salmon...

Ingredients for 6 people:

300 gr. of flour
50 cl milk
20 gr baker's yeast (or brewers' yeast)
4 eggs

In a salad bowl, mix the yeast with 10cl of hot milk and 100 gr of flour. Mix, cover the bowl with a cloth and leave in a warm place to double in volume after around an hour.
Next, prepare the rest of the mixture. Separate 2 egg yolks from the whites. Beat the whites until moderately firm.
In another bowl, mix the remaining flour with a little sugar. Make a well in the center, and pour in the yeast mix, the remaing 2 eggs, the 2 yolks and the remainder of the milk. Mix well. Then fold in the beaten egg whites carefully with a spatula. Leave to rise for a further 2 hours.
In a hot frying pan with a little oil, cook the small pancakes around 30 seconds on each side.
The blinis freeze well in aluminum foil. They should be defrosted 24 hours before being re-heated.
