Cornmeal kefir pancakes, or corn pancakes, make a pleasant variety in pancake recipes. Once I really wanted to bake pancakes on kefir, but the flour was almost over. It was too lazy to go to the store, but a bank of cornmeal was found deep in the closet. It is not worth adding grain to the dough, even finely ground, as she does not have time to bake, I tried. But the usual coffee grinder solved the problem - a few downloads, and the grain made excellent corn flour.
Corn pancakes on kefir turned out very tasty, lush, beautiful yellow color. Prepare the usual sour cream for them, add some fresh berries or jam - you get a tasty and inexpensive dessert or breakfast, if there is an extra half hour to prepare it.
