Tags: Quick eats
  • 100 g (3 1/2 oz) self-raising flour
  • 15 g (1/2 oz) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 170 ml (5 1/2 fl oz) milk
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil, for frying
  • 50 g (2 oz) milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) crème fraîche
  • 150 g (5 oz) raspberries
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a large bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre and gradually whisk in the egg and a little of the milk to form a thick batter. Stir in the remaining milk.
  • Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Using a scrunched up piece of kitchen paper, dip into the oil and use to wipe over the pan. Drop dessertspoons of the batter into the pan, spacing them well apart.
  • Cook for 1 minute, then scatter a little of the chopped chocolate over each. Cook for a further 1–2 minutes until bubbles start to appear on the surface and pop, then flip over and cook for a further 1–2 minutes until just firm. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter to make about 28 blinis, adding more oil if necessary. Serve warm, topped with crème fraîche and raspberries.
