These delightfully light and tangy pancakes are the Russian equivalent of blueberry buttermilk pancakes, which people in all the western countries know and love. Made with kefir, they are probiotic rich and healthy as well.

SImple to make, you can have these on your breakfast table in less than half an hour.

I hope you enjoy!

    • You could thin Greek yogurt until it is the consistency of kefir, which is drinkable/pourable, like thick buttermilk. The flavor is a bit different from sour cream and buttermilk though, but not by a whole lot.

  1. I really enjoyed these tasty pancakes. They were awesome, thick, fluffy and full of wild blueberries. I used Greek yogurt instead of kefir. The pancakes were quick and easy to make with terrific results. Made for What’s on Your Menu 2014.
