Ukrainian pancakes (Olady)


½ cup buttermilk or kefir
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1 heaping tablespoon sugar
pinch of salt
1 heaping cup of flour
sunflower oil, for cooking


Mix all ingredients well to form batter. Heat a generous amount of sunflower oil in heavy skillet. Pour batter into pan so it forms four small circles, approximately 2 inches in diameter. Cook until golden brown on one side, then flip to complete cooking. Repeat until all batter is used. Serve hot with sour cream, preserved fruit, or anything else that feels good. Yields 2-3 servings.

Variations for Olady:

Add a dash of cinnamon or vanilla powder to the batter.

Cut up small pieces of fruit. Fold into batter right before cooking.

Bon Appetit!
