I just adore breakfast. I don’t get to experiment enough with breakfast recipes as I’m often trying to get a’ goin’ to work in the AM.
I like to try new variations of pancakes, waffles, omelets, etc. whenever I get the chance. And lately one of my favorite snacks is greek yogurt + honey.
That’s putting it mildly really. I am actually COMPLETELY OBSESSED with: string cheese, fresh blueberry muffins, Snapea Crisps, and greek yogurt (with honey). It’s true. I get obsessed with certain snacks or meals, eat it waaaaay too often and then I’m over it for a while.
Food burn out. Live life with passion, that’s what I say.
These pancakes are wonderful. They are a departure from the usual fluffy, soak-up-syrup kind of pancake. These have a creamy, silky texture. Which is delicious but they can be little more difficult to flip then regular pancakes. You have been warned.
Greek Yogurt + Honey Pancakes, makes 4-6 medium/large pancakes
8 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup greek yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons honey, 2 eggs and butter or oil for cooking.
Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl stir together the yogurt, honey and eggs. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just combined. Get ready for pancake time. (Yes, that’s a real step. Take this serious, yo.)
In a medium/large shallow pan heat butter or oil over low/medium heat until it’s hot and melted (oil won’t really melt, so just wait until it hot). Pour a small amount of batter on the hot pan and see how quickly it cooks, this is a ‘test-pancake.’ I find I need this step as I tend to get overly anxious about pancakes and don’t wait long enough for the pan to heat up. You may not need this step. Know thy self. When the heats just right pour about 1/4 cup batter in the pan, wait until a few bubbles form and pancake is set and use a metal spatula to gently and carefully flip the pancake. Continue to cook until done (2-3 minutes or less). Repeat until you have cooked all the batter.
Serve with a bit more honey, butter or maple syrup. In my scientific findings I found that coffee and milk enhanced the enjoyment of these pancakes as well. Do your own research.
