Kefir and Lime Pancakes

How to Make

1 Cup
Birch Benders Classic Recipe Pancake and Waffle Mix
3/4 Cup
Plain Kefir
1 tablespoon
Oil, for greasing
  1. Heat a griddle or skillet to medium-high heat, about 375°F. The pan is hot enough when flecks of water sizzle off quickly after contact. If using a cast iron pan, keep an eye on your heat as the pan will hold heat well and you may need to turn down your burner over time.
  2. Lightly grease pan – we like to use about a tablespoon of oil and use a paper towel to quickly spread and wipe off excess.
  3. Zest one lime, juice both. Discard rinds.
  4. Combine Birch Benders, kefir, lime juice and lime zest.
  5. Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop batter into pan, one or two pancakes at a time, depending on the size of your pan.
  6. Cook until bubbles have formed and popped, and the sides are mostly dry.
  7. Turn once, cook an additional minute.
  8. Remove from heat. Store in a 200° oven while you finish making all the batter into pancakes.
  9. Top with more kefir, if desired, and garnish with a lime.
