Kefir Pancakes

These I boldly boast are the best pancakes ever! Light, fluffy and sponge like absolutely ideal for mopping up syrup or any of the butter pat that may have melted and run down the stack pooling at the bottom. I have posted pancake recipes before and I do at times still make those pancakes, but it is usually with kefir these days. It isn’t just because of this fabulous elixirs numerous health benefits but simply because I always have some in the fridge and it really makes the best pancakes ever.

Kefir for anyone not in the know is a fermented milk drink , it’s similar to a thin yoghurt. It originates in Russia and dates back to 1884. It is usually fermented over night with kefir grains giving the drink a sour, tangy slightly carbonated drink. I now use it in place of buttermilk in almost all my recipes as well as drinking every morning. one of my favourite recipes including kefir are my pancakes. I make them almost every weekend.

I love starting the weekend off with a pancake breakfast and until recently it was always with buttermilk pancakes, however I don't always have buttermilk. Lately I'm never without kefir in my fridge and it's not simply because of all the numerous health benefits of the tangy elixir that I now make all my pancakes with it but simply because it makes the best pancakes ever. They make the spongiest and lightest pancakes. I do adore these pancakes with a simple blackberry syrup made by thawing berries in some honey in a small pan over low heat until the berries have thawed and omitted their deep purple juices into the honey.
