Pancakes with Yogurt

Who here loves pancakes?! My whole family does, but to change things up we’ve been trying different varieties, including today’s recipe for Yogurt Pancakes.

Not only does yogurt add some sweetness to the batter, but it makes the pancakes so fluffy and delicious. We added some fruit on top and the pancakes were gone in minutes – no joke. My kids couldn’t get enough!

These pancakes are obviously perfect for breakfast any day, but we also love to have them for dinner too. They are simple, take minutes to make and are a recipe enjoyed by the entire family. That’s what we call a WIN!

How to make Yogurt Pancakes

Like most pancakes, this recipe is very simple. Begin by combining flour, sugar baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt and water. Combine these two ingredients and bake on a hot griddle.

We made these pancakes with vanilla yogurt but are anxious to try them with other varieties. I think it will add just a hint of whichever flavor you use. Maybe we’ll try Strawberry yogurt next time??

Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a stack of pancakes with syrup (or even better – Buttermilk Syrup!)

    1. I just made the recipe with plain greek yogurt. The pancakes were scrumptious! I substituted 2/3 cup of greek yogurt and 1/3 cup of water for each cup of yogurt called for in the recipe, and added some vanilla extract. I also added blueberries.

  1. The texture and rise on these was absolutely lovely! I would highly highly recommend adding a little salt, probably about 1/2 – 3/4 tsp as ours were pretty bland. Next time I make these I will also cut back on the baking soda probably to 1/2 tsp as well – there was a little bite to the pancakes from too much. I also threw in a little lemon juice to make the batter nice and smooth. Gorgeous results and felt better eating them with the extra protein than “everyday” pancakes. Many thanks!
