fluffy yogurt pancakes

It's Saturday. And let us celebrate with a big 'ol stack of cakes of the pan, yo.

My Saturday morning started at 6:30. I don't think I need to tell you how I felt about that. But after some TV and a ginormous cup of coffee, I laced up and went for a run, came home, and made breakfast. And believe it or not these pancakes weren't even breakfast.

You see, when I come home from my runs, I'm in what I like to call post-run super hyper mode. So this morning, while I was still in The Mode, I ate eggs and fruit and, after rinsing out the gallons of sweat that were burning the living heck out of my eyeballs, then remembered I was going to make pancakes. {isn't this a great story? I have skills.}

As I was washing the dishes, my tad bit of OCDness kicked in and I decided right then and there I wanted those dang pancakes. So I whipped up a batch, did my best to make them look all pretty-like, splattered yogurt all over the coffee table, adjusted the fork just so, took a million pictures, and then dug into a second breakfast. Because that's what you do on the weekends… Duh.

I think you should know I didn't actually eat the entire stack. I ate like… three. The rest are in the fridge for breakfast tomorrahh morning. Yah, babayyyyyy. Pancakes errydaaaaay.

Oh, so speaking of coffee tables {sorry, that was so two sentences ago. I believe my run is causing my bounciness.}, I found the PERFECT place to take my photos. The lighting is just so perfect and I love the wooden background. The only issue eeees… it's right in the middle of the living room where people, ya know… Live and stuff. Ugh, so annoying.

I feel like when there's actually people sitting there while I'm taking pictures of food {which to start with is just so… Not normal.}, then I have to give them a cookie, a bite of cake, a stack of pancakes- you get my gist. And I don't like sharing my food, sooooooooooooooooo now you know why I usually don't use the coffee table.

Thanks for listening to my probs.

Uh, so wanna talk about these pancakes? Sure ya do. 

I'm not gonna go into this long, stupidly stupid description of these pancakes. It's pretty simple- they're kinda sorta insane. They're fluffy, crispy on the outside, and are just a tad bit sweet. The ingredient list is pretty simple and would be a great base for an infinite number of add-ins. They're perfect with plain 'ol maple syrup, or if you're feeling real cray, yogurt, honey, and fruit. Honestly, they're fantastic enough to eat by themselves too. 

fluffy yogurt pancakes

2 eggs
1 c. yogurt
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 c. gluten-free flour {you can swap out for regular AP flour if you wish}
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. milk

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until evenly combined. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased skillet or frying pan. Once golden brown, flip with a spatula. Top with maple syrup, fruit, honey, or yogurt.

  1. Just wondered what kind of GF flour you used. I have a GF flour by Jules and I have many kinds of flours that could be mixed like brown rice, sorghum, rice flour and sweet rice flour, potato starch, etc.

    1. The flour I use is just a random brand that's only at our grocery store in Africa. hahaha! I can't find the bag but I think it's an all purpose mix of brown rice flour , xfanthem gum, tapioca flour, and cornstarch…

  2. These look scrumptious!!! Your photography is stunning! Thank you for sharing! Love, Julia :)

  3. I'm going to make these ASAP!

  4. I think I will make thieves tomorrow morning!, yumm!! Come link up your post at my party Centerpiece Wednesday http://thestylesisters.blogspot.com/2013/07/centerpiece-wednesday-85-and-wrap-up.html

  5. Ha, ha! You're a complete hoot. :-) Visiting from White Lights on Wednesday.

  6. Sophie, I love breakfast foods of all type but have had trouble getting into pancakes. However, I started using yogurt in some recipes and it made them so much fluffier and happier (instead of dense). I am so excited to try your version!

    1. My mom isn't into pancakes either, but she's slowly becoming a convert ;) Hope you enjoy these!

    2. I think I am becoming more and more of a pancake convert :) I just posted about oatmeal pancakes made with cottage cheese. Who would have thought? So good!


Thanks so much for taking a moment or two of your time to leave a comment! I love 'em!
