Kefir Pancakes...These are lovely light and fluffy..and although my Kefir was not very thick this time...I'm going to make them again....DS16 asked if we could have these every weekend. So I guess they get the stamp of approval.
I got the recipe from here...and Tammy has a whole heap of great recipes over there...
Fluffy Kefir Pancakes
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups kefir*
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Fresh fruit, butter, or syrup, for serving
|Always pour your batter from a jug|
|Use a non-stick griddle, and don't put any oil on it.|
I only use this griddle for our pancakes...
this way it remains in good condition for a lovely pancake finish.
|When bubbles appear, and the surface appears to be drying slightly|
then it's time to flip the pancakes.
|Standing around, chatting and snacking|
When I started MODIFYING my strainer..I tried to give the 2mm gap, but found it to be too flimsy...so I only removed every second thread..only on one axis....you'll see what I mean in the picture.....
|Besides the messy bit where I tried to reach the recommended 2mm|
but the strainer was too flimsy like that.
|After 36 hours|
|Stir the kefir gently, you don't want to break up your Kefir grains.|
|Then strain it...with my newly MODIFIED strainer.|
|Ahhhh, this is the good thickness that gives you that|
wonderful Kefir moustache.
|I think my grains have now doubled in size.|
so bring them on I say!
It is very very nice, and got the go ahead from all the family...even hubby said it was nice.
To the next strained batch of Water Kefir, I've decided to try orange...so I added the juice and rind of 1 orange...and half a cup of sugar...Its still brewing...so it will be exciting to try this later.
I like that I can change the flavour each time...it gives me heaps of room to experiment...and that's what cooking and kitchens are for.
