Helpful Tips

How to achieve the ideal consistency of the dough and how it is more convenient to bake the custard pancakes on kefir? Use these tips.

  • The ideal temperature. It is desirable that the ingredients are not cold. Take the food out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before the start of cooking. Then they will connect much better.
  • We choose the dishes. During the preparation of the custard dough for pancakes on kefir, when the boiling water is introduced into the egg mixture, the volume of the mixture increases significantly. Therefore, it is better to take the dishes larger and deeper.
  • Not to "cook". Boiling water, in spite of possible fears, will not "weld" other ingredients. But for this, it must be introduced gradually, with a very thin stream. It is necessary to mix the dough simultaneously.
  • Consistency. It is best that the dough is liquid, then the pancakes will turn out to be thin, with holes. And if you let the ready mass stand for 15-20 minutes, the gluten of flour swells (from boiling water), and pancakes will not break.
  • Quickly and accurately. In order to pour the dough on a frying pan, you can use a plastic bottle. It is easy to measure the desired portions, while the plate will not get drops (which can happen when using a ladle).
  • Prepare in advance. You can make a dough, for example, in the evening and use the next day. Before cooking, you need to store it in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
