Do you ever make a recipe and think, “Why don’t I make this more often?” That is always the case when I make my Fruity Yogurt Pancakes. They are so much better than plain pancakes, and I love the sweet “cake batter” flavor the yogurt adds to this dish.
When I was young and my dad wasn’t going to be home for dinner, my mother loved to make us a “Breakfast Dinner.” My dad was all about meat and potatoes, so having breakfast at night was a special treat. And because I am usually so harried in the morning, the thought of pulling out the mixing bowls and pans can often be too daunting. However, these light and sweet pancakes are perfect for any time of the day and with that protein-rich Greek yogurt, you will not only love the flavor and feel like you’ve had a hearty meal.
I add blueberries, but just about any fresh fruit will work. Bananas, strawberries, even chopped mango are perfect.
Belle’s Fruity Yogurt Pancakes
- 2 cups pancake mix (the type that you add water)
- 3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup blueberries
Using a whisk, mix the pancake mix and yogurt together in a medium bowl. Add 1/4 cup of water and mix well. Add small amounts of water until the mix is the consistency of thick cake batter. Gently fold in the fruit. Add about a 1/4 cup of batter to a greased hot skillet. Cook until the batter on top is bubbled, turn and cook until pancake is set and browned.
