Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes are perfectly light and fluffy pancakes made with vanilla yogurt and are begging to be made for Sunday breakfast!
There's something about Sunday morning's that just call for a yummy breakfast. I'm not talking about an extra-special bowl of oatmeal…I'm talking pancakes, waffles, omelettes, bacon, eggs, the works. Lately my Sunday morning breakfast craving has been pancakes, and Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes is our go-to recipe!
All-Purpose Flour - I use unbleached all-purpose flour for all of my baking and cooking.
Salt, Baking Soda, and Baking Powder
Greek Yogurt - I have used both vanilla and plain Greek yogurt. If you use vanilla yogurt along with vanilla extract, the pancakes will have a more pronounced vanilla flavor, which I love.
Milk - this helps thin out the batter a little bit
This pancake recipe with yogurt is a very straight forward and basic recipe. You start by combining the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients - eggs, yogurt, vanilla, and milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until *just* combined. Now, you'll let the batter sit for about 5-10 minutes, letting bubbles form on the top.
Then you'll heat a griddle over medium heat. This is our go-to griddle and it makes pancake mornings so much easier! I usually spray it with non-stick cooking spray and then pour the batter onto the griddle using a ⅓ cup measuring cup. The pancakes are cooked until there are bubbles forming on the top. Depending on how hot your griddle is, this could take anywhere from 2-4 minutes. Then flip, cook another couple of minutes, and transfer to a plate.
These yogurt pancakes are amazing served topped with more yogurt, drizzled with maple syrup, or whipped cream!
The Fluffiest Buttermilk Pancakes
These look great...and make me want to eat pancakes right now at 9:00 at night! I love making homemade pancakes...they are so good! YUM!
Those look so fluffy and perfect!
I agree with you- Sunday morning should be a breakfast day!! These pancakes look awesome:)
I love homemade pancakes! So fluffy + tasty.
These look great, this recipe is a keeper. Your pancakes look PERFECT 🙂
I've never seen a pancake recipe with yogurt! They look really great! And I bet the vanilla made them extra special.
Wow, you pancakes look so fluffy and light...have to try it...
These pancakes look amazing! You can really tell how good they were just by looking at the pictures. Can't wait to try this recipe!
I was totally in the mood for pancakes the other day and now you have me craving them again!
wow those look so good right now... and i'm not even particularly fond of pancakes!
Can I use whole wheat flour instead?? Please let me know!
I have never tried using whole wheat flour, so I can't tell you for sure. However, I would try using half whole wheat flour and half white flour first, as sometimes I have different results in other baked goods using all whole wheat flour. Hope this helps 🙂 Let me know if you try it!
Can someone tells the nutritional facts for these pancakes? Thanks!
Made these for brunch today. They were yummy and went really well with fresh berries and wild blueberry sauce! My hubby was more than thrilled.
So glad to hear this Samantha! It's always nice when the husbands are happy 🙂
Indeed. I got asked to make them again today too! They have quickly become his favourite pancakes.
I made these tonight... kinda. I am an experienced cook, but these stuck so bad I finally had to pour them in a pan and bake like a coffeecake!It smells great, though!
I'm sorry to hear this! I've made these multiple times and haven't had this issue...did you butter or grease your pan well? How did it turn out baked in the pan?
I wonder if it was because I did not have a nonstick pan?
I doubled the recipe, and I did bake the batter in a 9×13 pan at 350 for about 20 minutes. It rose nicely. I poked holes about every 1/2 inch while warm and immediately poured strawberryou syrup on it (because after I put it in the oven I realized that I had no maple syrup!).
I have twin 13 year olds and a 15 year old. I could not believe the response. They thought the pan CAKE (hahaha) tasted better than any pancake I have ever made and begged me to always bake them from now on. They loved the texture and there was even enough for breakfast (we were having pancakes for dinner).
Thank you so much! The taste is amazing and though I somehow couldn't get them not to stick, the pancakes in a pan was a huge hit with very judgemental teenagers!!!
