3/4 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
4 bacon rashers, finely chopped
20 grams butter, melted, to grease
1 tub store-bought corn relish
Sift flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk buttermilk and egg and add to flour, whisking constantly until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes to rest.
Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over moderate heat. Cook and stir bacon for 3-4 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towel.
Wipe pan clean and place over moderate heat. Brush pan with melted butter to grease. Drop teaspoons of blini mixture into pan, spread to 5cm rounds. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface and bottom is golden brown. Turn and cook other side for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Arrange the blini on a serving platter. Top with corn relish and bacon pieces.
