Oladushki with apples

Oladushki is one of the most delicious ways of cooking Russian pancakes.

1 green apple
1 cup kefir
7 tablespoonfuls of flour
1 egg
1 pinch of soda
1 pinch of salt


Oladushki are a type of pancakes based on kefir, a sour-milk product traditional to Russian cuisine. To make perfect oladushki, put flour into a round-bottomed bowl, add an egg, a pinch of salt and a pinch of soda and start adding kefir slowly. Whisk the mixture while adding the kefir, until you get a creamy consistency. Bake the oladushki on a well-heated frying pan, adding the bits of dough with a tablespoon. An average-sized frying pan normally fits 3-4 of these pancakes. Straight after putting dough on the hot pan, dip a thin slice of apple into it. Cook on both sides.

Serve hot with sour cream or jam. It makes a yummy breakfast!
