Yogurt Pancakes


These Yogurt Pancakes are a little taste of my childhood. Flavorful and delicious these pancakes are just a little bit different in texture than a traditional pancake recipe.

Serve them with a side of Rainbow Fruit Kabobs, some Homemade Breakfast Sausage, and maybe a Strawberry Banana Smoothie.

Family Favorite Pancakes

Ever thought to put yogurt in pancakes? It changes the texture and adds such great flavor.

  • The tangy flavor of any fruity yogurt is great way to start any day (peach is my favorite).
  • These reheat well so mix up a batch or two and enjoy all week for breakfasts.

Ingredients for Yogurt Pancakes

BATTER: Like most pancakes, these start with a batter made from typical pantry ingredients like flour, sugar, baking powder and soda.

FLAVORS: Peach yogurt is super yummy here, but banana, strawberry, blueberry, or blackberry yogurt can be mixed in.  Create your own signature pancake!

TOPPERS: Warmed maple syrup, whipped cream, or fresh or canned fruit is always a hit!

How to Make Yogurt Pancakes

  1. Combine wet and dry ingredients (per the full recipe below). Fold in yogurt.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a heated skillet or griddle & cook until the edges are set and the little bubbles pop.
  3. Flip & cook a couple of minutes more.

Serve these with additional fruit or yogurt, butter, and syrup. Add a bit of whipped cream if you’d like.

Perfect Pancakes

  • Do not overmix the batter, like a quickbread or muffin recipe, the batter should be a bit lumpy. Stir just until everything is moistened.
  • Always pour batter into a preheated, greased pan/griddle to ensure cakes don’t absorb the oil. Preheating keeps the pancakes from spreading and helps them rise and brown properly.
  • Once the edges are set and the bubbles on top have burst, the pancakes are ready to flip.
  • If making batches, heat a baking sheet in the oven at 200°F and place the pancakes on the pan while finish cooking.
