Where can I get a "blini" pan?

Looking for a cast-iron blini pan. Thought I'd find one at Tap Phong, but no luck. Anyone know where I can get a cheap one in the GTA? Thanks!

  1. I've made blini many times, most often for guests. I use James Beard's raised batter. Never even thought of needing a special pan. They're mini-pancakes - use a griddle or a regular pan - my cast iron pan works great. Just be consistent on your batter amounts - use a spoon. They'll come out perfect.

      1. any well seasoned cast iron pan or a crepe pan, provided it's cast iron, would work as a bline pan. i've always just worked with a straight ahead cast iron. and, yes, always your dought will be leavened, or else it's just a weird crepe....
