• A Really Good Pancake Recipe

    May 22, 2010

    I wasn’t planning to blog about breakfast this morning, but I just had to share this pancake recipe. It’s a really good one! :mrgreen:


    A Really Good Pancake Recipe

    Makes 8 pancakes


    • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
    • 3 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • 1.5 cups vanilla soy milk
    • 3 oz low-fat Greek yogurt
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp canola oil


    • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
    • Heat pan (or griddle) over medium heat; coat with non-stick cooking spray.
    • Drop 1/4 cup cupfuls of batter onto the pan/griddle.
    • Cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes and then flip. Cook on the other side for about 1 minute.
    • Serve with your favorite toppings.

    These pancakes turned out really well– thick, doughy, slightly sweet, and a little chewy. They’re especially amazing with a drizzle of maple syrup on top. I’m a big fan. It’s definitely my new go-to recipe for pancakes.

    Off to Mohegan! Wahoo! 😎

    So jealous! I’m still trying to work the kinks out of my gluten free pancakes. For now, I will just imagine I’m able to eat yours!

    Sounds really good too! I like that is a healthy option, it’s so hard to find a good tasting healthy pancake! Thank you for the recipe!


    Jessica @ How Sweet It Is May 22, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Pancakes from scratch are the best. I hope you guys have a great time!


    Kristin May 22, 2010 at 11:19 am

    I can remember my mom putting cherry flavored yogurt in her pancake mix when I was little. They were the BEST!


    Emma May 22, 2010 at 11:33 am

    i just had pancakes for breakfast, too. i used corn meal 🙂


    Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 22, 2010 at 11:34 am

    I bet that yogurt adds a great flavor to the pancakes!


    claire May 22, 2010 at 11:51 am

    I had pancakes for bfast too! yum! My parents always add yogurt to their pancakes too, I don’t because I don’t eat dairy but I’ve heard its a great addition. Have fun!

    Freya @ Brit Chick Runs May 22, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Greek yogurt in a pancake – what a good idea!!


    Traci May 22, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    Pancakes are my favorite! Those look delish!


    Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg May 22, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Ooooh, I bet adding in the extra greek yogurt makes the pancakes extra moist! Yum!


    Erin May 22, 2010 at 1:01 pm

    Mmmm… I’ve been hunting for a good pancake recipe to get away from the boxed stuff.


    Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) May 22, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    Mmm…these pancakes look perfect! I love the addition of yogurt and soy (extra protein and flavah! 😀 )


    Heather (Heather's Dish) May 22, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    i love this recipe and the fact that i already have everything stocked in my pantry! definitely a must-try 🙂


    X May 22, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    Those do look delicious! I have also never been disappointed by Alton Brown’s pancake recipe, which makes incredibly fluffy and tasty pancakes 🙂



    The Wife of a Dairyman May 22, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Looks yummy! Going to have to try.


    Marisa (Loser for Life) May 22, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Love the addition of greek yogurt! YUM!


    Casey @ Chasing Casey May 22, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Sounds perfect. I love thick and dough-y cakes


    Lisa @ Early Morning Run May 22, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    These look fantastic and I’ve never thought of putting greek yogurt in pancakes! Do you think it would work well with whole wheat flour instead of all purpose?


    Lisa May 22, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Poor Murphy!! If he’s anything like my kitties, he’ll miss his mom and dad terribly!


    Wei-Wei May 22, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Oh, yummy! I was wondering, if I only wanted to make a batch for myself (I usually use half a cup of mixed flour + oats, and half a cup of milk for my batter for myself) how would I substitute the egg? There aren’t any cartoned egg whites here in China, so… :S Thanks!



    Hannah May 22, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    Thank you. I really appreciate that you make, and post, recipes with more normal ingredients – not everyone has protein powders and the like in the pantry! This looks realy yummy, and fresh, and natural. You’re a wonder!


    CaSaundra May 23, 2010 at 8:32 am

    Love that it uses Greek Yogurt in it–you can never have enough good pancake recipes! 🙂


    Stacey January 24, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Wow, that IS a good pancake recipe! For once I actually wanted to eat them with FEWER toppings to enjoy the flavor. MMMMM!!!


    Leslie April 17, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Question – This recipe says “3 oz Greek Yogurt”…do you know how many tablespoons that is? Loving your recipes!


    Melissa May 2, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    I’ve been making the same pancake recipe for years and tried yours out for the first time last weekend and they turned out so DELICIOUS! I’ll definitely continue making them. Thanks for sharing 🙂


    Marjorie June 30, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    I tried this recipe with one modification. I used Kefir instead of Greek yogurt (I don’t like yogurt). These pancakes were the BOMB! I will be making these again!
