For the pancakes:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I use Fage whole milk yogurt) See tips above in the post for alternatives to Greek yogurt. You will use 1 cup of any of the alternatives and still use 1½ cups of the milk listed below.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • neutral-flavored oil (sunflower, safflower, avocado, canola, etc.)
For topping, any of the following:
  • butter, warm maple syrup, Ridiculously Easy Lemon Curd, Maple Molasses Pecans, sliced bananas, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries
  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-large bowl. Whisk to combine then make a well in the center.
  2. Add Greek yogurt, eggs, and milk to the well. Whisk everything together. The mixture will be lumpy at first. Continue stirring just until all flour is incorporated. It’s fine if there are some small lumps. Add the melted butter and vanilla and stir until blended.
  3. Heat an oiled griddle or large sauté pan over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of neutral-flavored oil. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle (or pan), using approximately ⅓ cup for each pancake. Spread with your scoop or the back of a spoon to an approximately 5-inch circle. Cook until tops are bubbly, and edges begin to look golden and dry. With a wide spatula, flip and cook until underside is golden.

  4. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
