There is more than one recipe for pancakes on this website, if you are looking for some other recipe, try here: all pancake recipes.
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.

Skin apple, cut it in quarters and remove seeds:
Slice apple quarters and add them to the batter:
Warm up skillet with about 2 tablespoons of oil over moderate heat; ladle a bit of batter with a tablespoon (make sure you ladle a few slices of apple in it as well) and pour batter to the skillet; repeat for several more pancakes:
Fry pancakes on one side until light brown color then flip them to another side using spatula and fry until ready:
