Easy Yogurt Pancake Recipe

Usually, we make pancakes using milk, but you can get fluffy and delicious Yogurt pancakes too using plain or flavored yogurt, and in this post, you will learn how to make some. I was hesitant when I tried this recipe the first time, but now it’s the recipe I love for making pancakes beside my sour cream pancakes.

How to make Yogurt pancakes

I have used plain, unsweetened, and regular yogurt for this recipe, I know there are recipes on using Greek yogurt out there on the internet so that you can give that a try too. You can try your hand on flavored yogurt but adjust the sugar in the recipe if the yogurt is sweet.

Yogurt is thick, so in this yogurt pancake recipe, I have added water to make pouring of the batter easier.

In a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients except for sugar and sift. Sifting the flour makes the pancakes lighter, and the batter will have fewer lumps.

Beat the wet ingredients with sugar for a few minutes until the sugar dissolves and then add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix gently. When making pancakes we tend to overbeat the batter because of the lumps, but you should stop yourself from beating the batter until the lumps disappear.

How to store Yogurt pancakes

If you are a busy person who happened to love pancakes, you can freeze them. It is better to freeze the pancakes than refrigerate them. Fridge dry the pancakes.

For best results, after you make the pancakes, and when they come to room temperature, place the yogurt pancakes in an airtight container and place it in the freezer.

Other ways to store the pancakes in the freezer is by individually wrapping the yogurt pancakes in a plastic wrap and then place all the wrapped pancakes in an airtight container and then place it in the freezer.

  1. do you think we could keep this mixture in fride in squeeze container so when hubby wants a pancake can just squeeze it out in morning
    thanks, more protein using yogurt…

  2. Hi there, I’ve never left the batter in the fridge for more than 24 hours, but one thing for sure, you can freeze the pancakes for up to 4 weeks. After they thaw I microwave them, and they stay fluffy. Hope this helped 🙂

  3. mmm, Good recipe but here shall we can add curd..???

    These pancakes were easy to make and so tasty! They didn’t smell egg like other recipes. I used 2 teaspoons baking powder and no baking soda. Thank you!
