The filling is ready.

Turn on the oven to 350F.

Stir everything well with a whisk.

Pour in the flour.

Add the baking soda (or the baking powder).

Use the same cups to measure the flour and the kefir (buttermilk).

Use the whisk to stir the batter. It should be liquid like a pancake batter.

Butter the pie dish thoroughly.

If using a glass or a ceramic pie dish, line it with baking paper first and then butter the paper.

Pour half of the batter into the pie dish.

Spread the filling over the batter in an even layer.

The batter is liquid so you won’t be able to smooth out the filling. The best way is to place small parts of the filling onto the batter so that you end up with an even layer throughout.

Cover the filling with the rest of the batter.

You can experiment with various fillings. If you choose to make this pie with berries or any other sweet filling, add 2 tablespoons of sugar to the batter.
