Granny´s coconut-kefir pancakes

As far as I remember from my childhood those fatty goldenbrown ‘Granny style'(read: very fatty) spoon-pancakes(lusikapannkoogid) have always been food that was made when there wasn´t much else to eat in the house but some flour in the corner of the cupboard and a bit of fermented milk. Not to mention that there was always some homemade jam there. Raspberry, strawberry and black currant flavours go really well with those spoon-pancakes.

They were often made with kefir too but in my family it usually vanished before someone had a chance to cook with it. But the pancakes can be made with coconut-kefir too and they taste just as good or even better.

The milk usually came from a local farmer and was simply cultured(not like the store milk that just rots) as there wasn´t anything pasteurized back then. I stopped drinking milk when I moved to town as I couldn´t get used to the taste of industrial milk. Also soon after that I didn´t consume animal products any more.
