sunday morning pancakes {a photo journal}

Lazy mornings don’t happen often in our house, with me usually waking up early for a run and then rushing out the door to make it to work on time, and Marc typically sleeping in after an overnight or evening shift at the hospital, but when it does happen we take full advantage of it.

When McCormick’s asked me to create a photo journal of a meal that symoblizes homemade cooking to kick off their American Homemade Program my mind immediately jumped to Sunday Supper, as that’s a meal that I think should always be homemade. The more I thought about it though, I realized how Sunday morning breakfast is also a great example of homemade cooking. Sure, you can jump in your car and drive to IHop for your stack of cakes, but is there anything better than sleeping in, drinking cup after cup of coffee, staying in your PJ’s until noon, and the smell of bacon and pancakes cooking away in your own kitchen? For me, that symbolizes home cooking more than anything.

Slippers and PJ’s are not optional when making Sunday morning pancakes, just so ya know.

Also helpful: having a pancake flipping assistant so you can get action shots of Sunday morning pancakes.

Coffee is also not optional.

In addition to McCormick’s American Homemade program, they’ve also introduced a fun way to find new recipes and meal plan, called FlavorPrint.  You start out on the website by liking or disliking a number of ingredients and cooking methods and then McCormick creates your FlavorPrint accordingly.  It’s the neatest thing and I’ve already made three things using my FlavorPrint!  Strawberry Yogurt Pancakes | greens & chocolate

Don’t pancakes eaten while in your PJ’s just taste better too?

So what is your definition of “American Homemade”?  Is it a Sunday dinner pot roast?  Your grandma’s famous sugar cookie recipe?  Your favorite lasagna?  I want to know!

sunday morning strawberry yogurt pancakes

Print Rate


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp McCormick pure vanilla extract


  • In medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder together.
  • Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  • Add the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla into the hole and lightly whisk them together, then whisk them into the dry ingredients until just combined. It will probably still be lumpy, and that’s okay.
  • Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes (depending on how hungry you are). It will increase in size and form bubbles on the top.
  • Pre-heat a griddle or pan on medium-low heat.
  • Coat surface with a pat of butter or baking spray and add pancake batter to pan using 1/3 cup measuring cup.
  • Wait to turn pancakes until they are forming bubbles on the surface side.
  • After turning, the pancakes will take about half the time as they did on the first side, usually about 2-3 more minutes.
  • Serve immediately with syrup, fruit, powdered sugar, or any of your favorite pancake toppings!
  • Enjoy!

  1. Bacon and pancakes cooking away in the morning is seriously one of the greatest smells! These pancakes look so yummy! I usually use plain Greek yogurt in mine, but I love how you used strawberry, can’t wait to give them a try!

  2. Coffee is definitely not optional! My favorite part of the day : )

    I loved seeing these pictures – we rarely have a relaxing weekend breakfast … I should really try to make it happen!

  3. Yum, we love pancakes around here. They are one thing my guys get in the morning wanting. I like your tip about letting the batter rest 😀
    My American homemade is Beef Stew loaded with veggies and potatoes, then served with fresh homemade bread.
