The most common recipes are American pancakes on milk. But it can be completely replaced with yogurt, sour cream, yogurt, fermented milk or even whey. It affects the taste, but everything depends on personal preferences. To pancakes have risen in the process of baking, you need to add soda, which reacts with the rest of the ingredients and gives the test fluffiness and lightness. Usually soda is quenched with boiling water or vinegar. But this ingredient can be replaced with baking powder (baking powder), which is sold in stores. The taste will add sugar and salt. Their number can vary. Salts do not need much. But sugar should not be abused. First, then pancakes will burn, and secondly, they are served with syrupy syrup. Sometimes the composition includes eggs, but as practice shows and the experience of housewives, sometimes you can do without them. Another component is oil. You can choose vegetable (sunflower, corn or olive) or creamy. Margarine, too, will do, but the taste will not be so.
