These are akin to buttermilk pancakes. Fluffy with that perfect flavour that buttermilk brings. The thing is, I don’t usually have buttermilk, but I do usually have yogurt, and just learned this week how to make it myself, so it’s way cheaper too.
This recipe takes add in’s very well. Shredded apples, zucchini or carrots; blueberries, mashed bananas, dried fruit, chocolate chips, or whatever else you can think of.
1 Cup flour (use up to half whole wheat, if you like)
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon, optional
3/4 – 1 Cup plain yogurt
1/2 Cup add-ins, if desired
Beat the egg in a large bowl, then stir in remaining ingredients, start with the lesser amount of yogurt, and add more yogurt or a touch of milk if batter is too thick (yogurt consistency varies, so you can be the judge). Preheat a heavy skillet or griddle to medium-high. Add a small amount of oil to prevent sticking (I use a brush to spread it around so I can use less). Drop batter onto skillet and cook until edges are dry and top is bubbly, turn over once, and continue cooking until browned. Serve immediately.
