Hi there,

Although I have several variations of pancakes recipes that are included in one of my recipe books, I have found and modified to my personal preferences one more recipe and these pancakes became my kids’ favorite.

Stack of pancakes

Larger batch .. Smaller batch

  • 14 oz (400 ml) buttermilk or kefir
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar (or less)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2-3 tsp water
  • 6 – 7 oz (170 – 200 g) white flour
  • 3-4 tbsp oil

  • 1 cup buttermilk or kefir
  • 1 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp white flour
  • 2 tbsp oil


  1. In a small pan on medium heat warm buttermilk/kefir stirring all the time until it warm (be careful not to overheat).
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk two eggs, add warm buttermilk, salt and sugar; mix well.
  3. In a small cap, mix baking soda with water (do not use vinegar). Add soda to the butter, mix.
  4. Add flour, mix everything. The thickness of butter will depend how much flour you’ll add. I like both variations. This will make pancakes thinner or thicker (as shown on the images).
  5. At the end, add oil and mix butter again.
  6. Preheat non-stick frying pan to high temperature, grease the bottom lightly (I use a pastry brush dipped into oil). Depending on a pan material and quality, you may need to grease only once before the first pancake, or before each pancake.
  7. Pour the butter into the frying pan. Size may vary depending on size of frying pan or your personal preference. With thicker butter, I make up to three pancakes on the large size pan.
  8. Bake pancakes on both sides.
  9. Serve warm alone, with syrup or sour cream. Enjoy!
