  • 500ml milk kefir 
  • egg beaten
  • 2 tbsp sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 350g plain flour 
  • 1/2 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.
  5. Tip: Serve with crème fraiche, a drizzle of honey and fresh raspberries. Recommended Recipes Milk Kefir Bread
