  • 1/2 c
    unbleached unbromated all purpose white flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    baking powder - aluminum free
  • 2 1/2 tsp
    turbinado sugar (cane sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp

How To Make kefir pancakes (organic)

  • 1
    Mix all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. (I use my Pampered Chef Measuring Mixing Bowl)
  • 2
    In a separate bowl, whip egg until fluffy.
  • 3
    Add kefir and vanilla to whipped egg. Stir gently.
  • 4
    Add the egg/kefir mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until blended. DO NOT overmix.
  • 5
    Heat your skillet, cast iron pan, or griddle to temperature.
  • 6
    Batter will "grow" during heat up time... this is good! This is a thick batter.
  • 7
    I use a 1/3 cup measure to measure the batter. Not an exact science, just a scoop size.
  • 8
    Cook just as you would any other pancake. Wait for bubbles and flip.
