Russian Pancakes (Oladi) with Apple

Russian Pancakes (Oladi) with Apple

This recipe is a step up for russian kefir based pancakes – oladi. My mom used to add slices of apple to oladi batter and that is the way how I prefer them – oladi with apple served warm with sour cream topping.

So the recipe is quite easy: prepare oladi batter, add slices of apple and fry pancakes.

This dish is a perfect choice for breakfast or brunch, or even fast prepared snack. I bet kids would love those pancakes as well. They taste good accompanied with a glass of kefir.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of plain unsweetened kefir
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1.5 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
