  • 500ml milk kefir
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 350g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Whisk together the kefir, egg, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into another bowl and mix together. Add the kefir mix to the flour mix and stir together to make a thick batter. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Add enough oil to a non-stick frying pan to cover the bottom up to 1cm deep. Heat on a medium setting and, once the oil is hot, use a large spoon to add scoops of batter to the oil. Fry until golden brown, then flip carefully using a spatula – the pancakes will start to puff up as soon as they’re flipped.
  4. Fry on the other side until the batter is firm and cooked all the way through.

Tip: Serve with crème fraiche, a drizzle of honey and fresh raspberries.
