ANKO Blini Food Processing Equipment Solutions

Semi-Automatic Blini Production Equipment Designed with Soft Pancake Stacker

The client inquired a machine for making blini. Our agent gave a test run with ANKO's SRP (Automatic Spring Roll and Samosa Pastry Sheet Machine), but failed to arrange them in a pile. Therefore, ANKO's engineers researched and developed a new stacker to solve the problem.

Food Ingredient

  • Flour
  • Egg
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Milk
  • Oil
  • Butter

Food Culture

The circular blini, symbolizing the sun, can be traced back to the pre-Christian era. It is a type of pancakes, but thinner than traditional ones. Blini is usually spread with jam, cottage cheese, sour cream, or served with salmon or meat. Some like to fold blini into quarters and dip it into jam or enjoy a roll of filled blini. In this case, the client makes square blinis with ANKO's blini machine.

Handmade Food Recipe

  • Add eggs, sugar, and salt in a bowl and then mix them well.
  • Add milk and flour in the same bowl and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add oil. Heat a pan over medium heat and brush a thin layer of melted butter.
  • Pour a ladle of mixture and swirl the pan to make the mixture spread evenly.
  • Cook it until slightly golden brown. Flip over.
  • Cook the other side for 30 seconds and remove to a plate.

Blinis were bent and unable to be stacked when conveying to the stacker that is used to pile samosa pastry or spring roll wrapper. It is because blini is softer than samosa pastry, spring roll wrapper, and crepe, so we designed a new stacker for blini with soft texture.

The production processes of making spring roll pastry, samosa pastry, crepe, and pancake are the same, involving spreading batter, baking, cooling, cutting, and stacking. If any clients ask about these kinds of food, we usually recommend SRP Automatic Spring Roll and Samosa Pastry Sheet Machine.

When the Russian client inquired about blini-a variation of pancake, we also gave a test run with the SRP. The machine could cut a strip of pastry into square blinis in equal size, but they bent and were unable to be stacked when vertically sliding down from the cutter to the stacker.

Food Equipment Introduction

  • Mix all ingredients in a mixer
  • Pour batter into tank.
  • Batter spraying and baking
  • Pastry cooling with coolers
  • Cutting into desired size
  • Stacking
Breaking linear thinking and designing a new type of cutter.

A strip of baked pastry is continuously conveyed, cooled, and cut without stopping the production line. In order to match the conveyor speed, ANKO's engineer designed a rotary cutter, instead of a cutter operating in linear motion. The rotary cutter moves synchronously with the conveyor, while the moving direction of the ordinary cutter is opposite to that of the conveyor, so the cutter may block the conveying pastry and produce unequal blinis.

Cooling system can prevent spray nozzle clogging.

The batter may be cooked in the spraying nozzle by the high heat of baking drum. Therefore, a special cooling system is designed to make iced water flow through the spraying nozzle and keep the batter cool all the time.


The design of SRP makes cut blinis vertically drop to the stacker. Then, the flipping tool of the stacker turns 90 degrees to stack them. However, for piling soft pastries, the Blini Stacker is more suitable.

In order to smoothly stack soft pastries, ANKO team designed a motor-driven conveyor to collect cut blinis and convey them to the stacker. (This machine is not on ANKO's official website. If you need more information, please contact us via Email, phone, or submit the inquiry form below.)
