Products (for 3 servings)

Birch juice - 200 ml

Water - 200 ml

Wheat flour - 150 gr (1 cup of 250 ml)

Unflavored vegetable oil - 30 ml + for greasing the pan

Sugar - 1/2 tbsp.

Soda - 1/2 tsp.

Salt - a pinch


For serving (optional):

Jam/jam/honey - 1-2 tbsp

Prepare the products according to the list.

Juice can be fresh or canned. I have a canned one.

Birch juice itself is quite sweet, so you can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.

From the specified amount I got 6 pancakes with a diameter of about 20 cm.

Sift the flour into a deep bowl, add salt and sugar.

Add the birch juice.

Mix until homogeneous with a whisk. Cover and leave for 30 minutes.

In a separate bowl combine 200 ml of boiling water and baking soda. Stir and cool to room temperature.

Pour the cooled baking soda water into the batter and use a whisk to mix until homogeneous.

Pour in vegetable oil and stir again.

Heat a frying pan on medium heat and grease it with vegetable oil. Pour about a ladleful of batter into the pan and spread it out on the bottom, gently tilting the pan sideways. Fry the pancake over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes on each side, until crispy.

Fry the rest of the pancakes in the same way. Vegetable oil can be used to grease the frying pan as needed.

Lenten pancakes with birch juice are ready.

We serve them to the table, adding jam, honey or jam if you wish.
