Pancakes are a simple dish in terms of cooking. Traditionally pancake dough knead on sour cream, adding buckwheat flour. Some recipes use yeast dough.

Buying buckwheat flour is not difficult, but it is not well kneaded and it has to be mixed with wheat flour in equal proportions. It takes several hours to prepare the yeast dough.

Sour cream in traditional recipes is included unreasonably, since the finished goodies are very satisfying. And given the fact that people eat them with sweet sauces, they become heavy and fatty foods.
