Serum pancake recipe
The recipe for cooking pancakes on the serum can be both with the use of eggs, and without them.
If you do not want to add eggs to the dough, then for the preparation of pancakes based on our recipe you need to take the following ingredients:
- Serum. It`s good if it`s still warm.
Flour Extra Class.
Sugar, salt, soda.
Vegetable (sunflower) oil.
While stirring or whipping the dough with a whisk, add the flour to the warm whey until a creamy mass is formed. The dough should be thick enough, but pouring.
Add sugar and salt. Sugar is needed a little so that the dough is not sweet.
The amount of soda we take, depending on the acidity of the whey. We constantly taste the dough. Soda should be felt, but very little. If the soda is too small, the pancakes will not be magnificent, but a large amount of it will ruin the taste of pancakes. You can try the very first pancake and, guided by its taste, correct the ratio of ingredients.
Add a little vegetable oil, literally a few spoons. After this, the dough should be left in a warm place for at least an hour. Ideally, when the dough is cooked in the evening, and pancakes will be baked in the morning.
Pancakes are cooked over medium heat and preferably on a cast-iron frying pan. You can use Teflon, but it must be oiled every 2 pancakes.
If you want to cook lavish pancakes, then the dough should be poured into the middle of the frying pan and allowed to spread without additional manipulation.
Pancakes are prepared under a covered lid. In this case, they are baked and well raised. After a couple of minutes, turn the pancake and close the lid again.
