What you need

  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 30g butter, melted
  • butter, extra, for greasing
  • 200g PHILADELPHIA Light Spreadable Chive & Onion or Smoked Salmon
  • 30 smoked mussels
  • fresh herbs for garnish, e.g. dill

How to make it

  • SIFT flour, sugar and soda into a medium bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add combined milk, egg, lemon juice and butter. Whisk to form a smooth batter.
  • GREASE the base of a frying pan with extra butter. When the butter bubbles, drop 1 tablespoons of mixture into pan at least 2cm apart. When air-bubbles form on top of blinis, turn and cook until well browned. Remove and keep warm. Repeat for remaining mixture to make 18.
  • SPREAD each of the blinis with the PHILLY, top with a smoked mussel and garnish with fresh herbs.
