Yogurt Pancakes



Like silly putty, this recipe was stumbled upon completely by accident. Like America, I'm sure someone else had stumbled upon it first.

I wanted pancakes, but didn't have milk (be it cow, nut, grain, or bean) or eggs, and I was in a fluffy mood. I cast about the refrigerator and paused when I saw the yogurt. Yogurt: kind of like eggs and milk mixed together, right?

Wrong. It's better. These pancakes were so light and fluffy that I had to tether them down. I'd previously thought that MB's beaten egg white pancakes were the fluffiest, but these have those beat. Yes, these beat Bitten's beaten ones.

Sure they were poofy, but were they also moist? As moist as the day is long, and I'm not talking about the day of the winter solstice. I'm talking about about that sprawling summer solstice day. In other words, they were extremely moist. The yogurt also imparted a pleasant, savory tang.

On Sunday I skated across Walden Pond and found myself on top of a body of water I had only previously been in or under. The yogurt must have had the reverse experience when mixed into the pancakes. Used to sliding around on top, it suddenly found itself deep within them.

The only downside is that the cooking process probably nullifies the probiotic content of the yogurt. But you know the old saying: you've got to break a few billion bacteria to make pancakes.

-------------------------------

Recipe: Yogurt Pancakes

1 cup mixed whole grain flours (I used barley, spelt and corn)
1 cup plain yogurt (or whatever it takes to look like pancake batter)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
dash of cinnamon

Gently mix all of the above, leaving it lumpy. Marvel at its fluffy nature.

Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto a greased skillet (I used a non-stick pan, no oil at all, and they really didn't stick.) Once bubbling, flip, cook briefly on the B-side, and cook again until golden.

Mourn bacteria.

mmmmm. I love pancakes. I was considering making MB's beaten ones last week, but was too lazy to beat the eggs and went with traditional.

Sounds great! I guess this makes sense...my dad makes a wonderful sourdough pancake which I guess is sort of a similar idea...

Aaron Kagan said...

Laura,

Can you share his recipe? Sounds great.

Andrea said...

Do not use whole wheat flour!! They turn out disgusting and heavy. Such a waste of a cup of yogurt.

Kacenka said...

These sound awesome. Can't wait to try them! Thanks for saving me the trouble of having to experiment myself :-) http://www.mestomuse.blogspot.com

Heather said...

I tried this method several times this morning and haven't been able to get them to turn out. I tried different flours, cooking temps, yogurt amounts...they all turn out undercooked. I tried making them thinner, and they still didn't cook completely. Has anyone had any success? I'd love to know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get these yogurt pancakes to turn out.

NYB said...

Just gotta say thanks for posting this. I too was without eggs (though with milk) and these truly were amazingly fluffy. Used half buckwheat/half barley flour, and thinned the batter a little with milk.

Mary said...

Warning - do not use nonfat yogurt! I could not get these to cook all the way through, then ran down the block for a container of regular yogurt and had perfect pancakes on the first try. I wouldn't say you'll be tossing your favorite pancake recipe, but they are good if you're out of the usuals.

Hannah said...

Yeah, I should have read all the comments first, because I too used nonfat yogurt without realizing, and I got a bunch of flimsy, mushy pancakes. Please include that detail in the recipe so more people don't waste their ingredients!

Aaron Kagan said...

I didn't differentiate because non-fat yogurt isn't yogurt.

I just made these with spelt flour, buckwheat flour, and almond meal, and they were AMAZING!

Kathy said...

A great addition to my collection. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait ti try this especially for my family.

Love the comment about non-fat yogurt not being yogurt; when asked decaf or regular my mom would repeat: COFFEE.
I had a 6 oz. yogurt so added liquid, used Bobs(tm, rg, whatever) Gluten free baking mix and didn't get the usual aftertaste. Very fluffy. This is a keeper especially when low on ingredients.
