A few months ago, my sister mentioned that she was drinking kefir, we had a brief discussion on what kefir is (a fermented milk drink made with “kefir grains”…check wikipedia) and what it tasted like, I filed it away in the “hmm, maybe I should make pancakes with this” part of my brain and sort of forgot about it.
Taste-wise, these were pretty good. The kefir can be interchanged with buttermilk, but the pancakes were plenty rich already, so I think buttermilk may be overwhelming. The pancakes also came out super fluffy which is always exciting.

On the con side, the pancakes were super plain, almost bland. Once I added some lingonberry jam the pancakes were really good, but I had a hard time eating more than one. I think adding some zest to the batter would definitely be key.
