Kick off your weekend in style with these mouthwatering fluffy Kefir pancakes.


  • 250ml Kefir
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 350g plain flour
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • Honey and strawberries – optional topping


First whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence. Next slightly warm up the Kefir and pour it into the egg mixture, slowly adding the melted butter. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, then add this to the Kefir mixture. Quickly mix everything together to combine, but avoid over mixing. Don’t worry if there are a few lumps left, as they’ll disappear while cooking. Leave it to rest for just under ten minutes. The batter should be thick and creamy.

When you’re ready to cook your pancakes, heat the pan with oil over a medium heat and add a tablespoon of the mixture per pancake. Switch the heat to low and cook until golden, then flip the pancakes to the other side and cook for another few minutes.

Serve warm with fresh strawberries and a drizzle of honey.
