Curd pancakes are a very popular dish in Eastern Europe, and this recipe makes it a perfect choice for those on the keto diet.
Curd pancakes bring up memories from my childhood. This is a dish that my mom and my grandma used to make me when I was a kid. When you taste something that reminds you of your childhood memories, it always takes you back in time and makes you feel that unconditional love.
Curd pancakes were one of the first things I missed the most when switching to the keto diet. With no flour added, the pancakes didn't stick together. I knew I had to find a way to incorporate this dish into our keto meal plan.
This recipe has made it possible.
Coconut flour not only replaces regular wheat flour but also adds to the flavor of this dish, making it even more special. It's definitely worth giving a try!
Keto Curd Pancakes
- 350 g curd (opt for a curd with high fat content)
- 1 egg
- 90 g steviol (or another alternative sweetener of your choice)
- vanilla extract
- 100 g coconut flour (the amount of flour needed might differ based on how moist the curd is and how large is the egg; feel free to adjust it to achieve the right texture and thickness of the pancakes)
- lemon or orange zest (from 1 fruit)
- olive oil (for cooking)
- In a bowl, add curd, egg, steviol, lemon/orange zest, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
- Add coconut flour and mix again until thoroughly combined.
- Heat oil in a pan. Take a tablespoon of the mixture at a time, form a flat ball with your hands, and then roll the pancake in a plate or bowl with coconut flour so that the surface of the pancake is covered with a thin layer of coconut flour.The pancakes must be slightly soft and sticky but not 'runny'. You should be able to form the pancakes with your hands. If too wet, feel free to add extra coconut flour.
- Fry in oil until golden brown on both sides.Don't cook on high heat, or the outside of the pancakes will burn with the inside remaining raw.
- Serve with berries or jam of your choice. We actually prefer mixing jam with sour cream. Yum!
