Cooking lean pancakes:

Step 1: prepare the flour.

First of all, we need to prepare the flour for cooking. To do this, use a sieve and place it over a plate of a convenient size. Then pour the necessary amount of flour and soda, and begin to sift the components. We do this so that the flour is freed from lumps of flour and other particles, as well as saturated with oxygen and better mixed with soda.

Step 2: prepare lean pancake dough.

Then we cool clean water in the refrigerator and only this field we pour it into a bowl. Next, add vegetable oil and mix thoroughly with a tablespoon. Pour the sifted flour with soda into the resulting liquid mass and beat with a mixer until a homogeneous consistency without lumps. The dough should turn out to be liquid enough to subsequently spread easily along the bottom of the pan. If necessary, you can add a little cold water or flour to the dough.

Step 3: fry the pancakes.

We turn on the temperature of the stove to a medium level and put the pan on the burner to warm up. A bowl of dough and a clean plate in which cooked pancakes will be placed, set next to the stove. Then we pour a little vegetable oil into the preheated pan, evenly distribute it throughout the bottom and reduce the temperature of the stove a little. Now we proceed directly to the frying of a lean dish. We scoop up a small amount of batter with a ladle, slightly tilt the pan and pour the dough into the center. Then, in a circular motion, fill the entire area of ​​the container with dough, trying not to form large holes. Fry the pancake on one side for 1 - 2 minutes until golden brown and after that with a kitchen spatula we turn it over to the other side. We put the finished pancake on a plate, and pour the next portion of the dough into the pan. As a result, we get a delicious stack of golden pancakes.

Step 4: serve lean pancakes.

Beautiful, rosy lean pancakes can be served both hot and cold. As a complement to them, jam, honey or fruit sweet syrups are suitable. Also, such pancakes can be stuffed with various lean fillings, from berries and fruits to vegetables and cereals. In any case, it turns out very tasty. Enjoy your meal!
