Greek Yogurt Pancakes & Pancake Tips

Stud-muffin has a special secret pancake recipe from his grandmother written on the inside of one of our kitchen cabinet doors.  Obviously it's not a secret to me, since I know it's there, but I chose not to follow it anyway when the mini-muffins begged for pancakes this morning.

Awkward Kitchenette: Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Also, we may have been out of eggs.

And the mini-muffins were ready to help! This is their *on* time of day - around 7:00 am - when they make you remember why you wanted to have kids in the first place.

So we arranged ourselves in the kitchen and decided on Greek Yogurt Pancakes.

I found this recipe from How Sweet It Is for greek yogurt pancakes, but adjusted it to suit us (i.e. the ingredients I had on hand).

Did I mention that I googled 'greek yogurt pancakes'?
Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Makes about 14 pancakes

Ingredients:
2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup greek yogurt
2 cups milk



Step 1: Assemble volunteers.


Step 2: Mix dry ingredients.


Step 3: Mix in wet ingredients.

Tip #1: When the batter is ready, it should:
"look like wet mixed cement" - Stud Muffin
"Be lumpy" - me


 Step 4: Pour on hot greased griddle.


Tip #2: Get the griddle hot before you pour the batter on - a drop of water should sizzle when dripped when it is hot enough.

Tip #3: Grease the griddle between each pancake! I just drop a bit of butter on and spread it with the spatula.  This gives the pancakes nice crisp outsides.
 Step 5: Flip.

Tip #4: Pancakes are ready to flip with you see the crispy edges around the outside and the air bubbles go all the way through to the bottom (see un-flipped pancake ->)
 Step 6: Take off the griddle.  This pancake is DONE!



Step 7: Serve.

Tip #5: Save the left-overs in baggies in the fridge (or freezer) and pop them in the toaster to eat the next time!

  9. Yum! I love pancakes and yogurt! I think that would be a great snack after working out. I’m sure it’ll boost my energy after having spent so much in the gym. Looks like your cute little toddlers love it as much as I do. They did a great job with the mixing! If you sell this pancakes, I’m sure they’re going to be a real hit!
