Homemade kefir fritters

These fluffy fritters made of kefir, which you can easily make at home, covered with honey or caramel, will get you going!


For homemade kefir (0.5 liter):

  • 2 spoons of milk kefir cultures
  • 0.5 l of organic homogenized cow’s milk
  • clean glass, thin cloth, twine or rubber band, wooden or plastic spoon, plastic sieve

For pancakes:

  • 2 cups of homemade kefir
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2 and 3/4 cups plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 4-5 tablespoons of oil
  • caramel, honey, sour cream for serving


  1. Place the kefir cultures in a clean container and cover with milk.
  2. Cover with a thin cloth and secure with a string or rubber band.
  3. Leave it on for 24 hours and gently shake it from side to side about three times a day.
  4. As soon as the milk thickens and the texture is like a weak yogurt, the kefir is ready.
  5. The more it ferments, the more the mixture thickens until you see it start to separate into curds and whey.
  6. Strain the kefir through a plastic sieve and gently shake it from side to side.
  7. Rinse the jar and kefir cultures with water.
  8. Put them back in a clean container and pour milk over again to make another batch.
  9. Over time, as the cultures multiply and grow, you should add more milk to adjust the ratios.
  10. Another tip is to discard any cultures that come to the top immediately after adding a new batch of milk.
  11. They are empty cultures that we no longer need.
  12. The healthy cultures stay at the bottom, but you’ll notice them flowing up as the milk starts to ferment, and that’s okay.
  13. Prepare your kefir and start making fritters.
  14. Beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla in a bowl.
  15. Heat the kefir slightly and pour it into the egg mixture.
  16. Add the melted butter and mix.
  17. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour with baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  18. Add the dry ingredients to the kefir and egg mixture.
  19. Mix everything quickly, but avoid overmixing.
  20. If a few lumps remain, don’t worry, they will disappear during frying.
  21. Let it rest for 5-7 minutes.
  22. The dough should be thick and resemble the consistency of thick sour cream.
  23. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  24. Place a spoonful of batter on the pan, leaving a gap between the fritters.
  25. Reduce the heat to low and fry until golden, then flip over with 2 forks to the other side and fry for another few minutes until golden.
  26. Serve warm with sour cream, honey, jam or caramel sauce.
