Using Kefir Instead of Milk

kefir grainsSo, someone gave me some kefir grains and tibicos the other day and I have been making my own fermented goodies. This morning, I wanted to whip up some pancakes and there wasn't any milk left. There was plenty of kefir in the fridge however, and I don't quite like water in my pancakes so I thought I'd try using kefir instead. I mean, it couldn't go wrong right? It's just a little more sour than regular milk and I have heard of sour milk being used in pancakes.

It certainly did pay off because the pancakes turned out absolutely yummy. It was just like any other pancake recipe except I replaced the milk with kefir in a 1:1 ratio.

I'm going to try having kefir in other pastries instead of milk and see how they turn out. It probably wouldn't do so well in the ones that milk is a large portion of, but it should be fine in small amounts.
