When about half the flour is already in the dough, add soda. We measure it with a teaspoon, pour it into a tablespoon and quench with vinegar. We must try to get all the soda wet from vinegar. Add this mixture to the dough. Stir and continue to add flour until the mass reaches a uniform consistency of sour cream. Must grind any remaining lumps. Last add one tablespoon of vegetable oil.

When the edges of the pancake are browned - we turn it over to the other side with the help of a thin blade.To make the flour product easier to remove from the pan, you can first lift the edge with a spatula or knife.
