One of My Favorite Winter Recipes

Nothing quite hits the spot on a cold day like hot chocolate or hot cocoa. I was recently inspired by my love for hot chocolate and my favorite pancake recipe. The result is this deliciously warm and quick pancake recipe. This is one of my new favorite delicious winter recipes. This pancake mix recipe comes together very quickly and makes great use of the hot chocolate packets that come in holiday hot cocoa gifts.

Ingredients for Pancakes

  • 6 ounces French vanilla yogurt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ounces hot cocoa mix, (2 individual serving packets)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 eggs

How Do I Make Pancakes With Yogurt?

If you haven't ever used yogurt in your cooking or baking, the concept can seem downright weird, I get it. Once I tasted homemade pancakes made with yogurt, I couldn't make them any other way. Two years later, I still don't. I regularly make my homemade pancakes with strawberry yogurt. I've also used pumpkin yogurt during the fall months. My latest success combines Yoplait's French Vanilla yogurt with two packets of my favorite instant hot chocolate. For this recipe, use a 6 oz single-serving cup of French vanilla, vanilla, or just plain yogurt. If you have a larger tub of yogurt, use one measuring cup's worth. It will be a tiny bit more than 6 oz but works great too.

Using yogurt in this pancake recipe (and my others), yields such a perfect pancake in terms of both texture and flavor. The pancakes always come out fluffy, smooth, and taste amazing. The big difference that one small container of yogurt can make is almost baffling. I personally hate pancakes that taste like straight water and flour and leave you feeling like you have a giant ball of raw dough in your stomach for hours. These are not those pancakes.

Making Pancakes the Easy Way

  1. In large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, milk, vanilla, melted butter, and eggs. Mix well.
  2. Add hot chocolate mix, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well.
  3. Gradually mix flour into batter about a half a cup at time.
  4. Pour batter onto hot griddle (350° F) to form pancakes. Flip when bubbles have popped, tops are no longer "wet," and sides are beginning to brown.
  5. Cook other side until golden brown and remove.

This is the pancake pen I use to make perfectly uniform pancakes.

Tips for Making the Perfect Pancakes

  • Use one 6-oz cup of yogurt. If you have a larger tub of yogurt, use a measuring cup to scoop out one cup.
  • Don't prepare your hot chocolate as a drink. Use just the powder from two single-serving packets. A single serving packet is usually 1 ounce, so you will need 2 ounces total.
  • If your hot cocoa mix has mini marshmallows: you can leave them in, sift them out, or use them as a fun topping on your finished pancakes. You can also buy mini marshmallow bits. My favorite kind is made by Kraft and comes in a great plastic canister for shaking and pouring (similar to the containers that grated Parmesan cheese comes in).
  • Using a pancake pen or batter bottle makes life much easier. You can easily control the flow of your batter, giving you control over pancake shape and size. Mix batter in a bowl first and pour into the bottle.
  • Using an electric griddle can help you make more pancakes quickly which means breakfast is ready faster. I cook six pancakes at a time and I'm sitting down and enjoying my food faster than ever before. No more standing at the stove forever.
  • Only flip your pancakes once. Over-flipping the pancake can cause it to become tough.
  • Don't press down on your pancake with a spatula. It won't cook any faster but it will become deflated.

Serve With Your Favorite Pancake Syrup and Fun Mini Marshmallows

Simple recipes for pancakes don't have to be plain. Using yogurt and hot cocoa mix is a quick and easy cheat to achieve a whole new level of flavor with your pancakes. Experiment with different flavors of yogurt and hot chocolate. I hope you love these sweet little pancakes as much as I do. If you try out this recipe, be sure to let me know below. I always love to hear from you!

      Looks absolutely fabulous! I could substitute the regular flour for almond flour and make these low carb. Also need to use sour cream instead of yogurt because yogurt usually has sugar in it.

      Have you ever tried making pancakes in a quesadilla maker? It cooks both sides at once! no flipping and it's faster!

      I am guilty. I have an issue with reading hubs. I have a compulsive habit to read the hub then I have to go in an orderly fashion and read every comment. Then leave a comment. I had to skip reading your comments and break out the pancakes. I should of never tried reading your hub on an empty stomach. I have no will power. At a later date I will be back to read all your comments. For now my stomach growling is all I can think of. Pancakes, pancakes and more pancakes. So creative I had never thought of putting cocoa and yogurt in pancakes. Talk to you soon.

      Oh me oh my oh--I know better than to read recipes late at night! Looks fabulous. I would have to substitute coconut oil for the butter or make goat's milk butter, and goat's milk for the cow's milk, but that's no problem...and would be well worth the effort. Am very much looking forward to trying this out. Pinning to Ways w/ Food: Kids--thanks.

      I am fond of pancakes but never tried this recipe. I need to try this because my whole family loves pancakes. I usually make the plain one with all purpose flour, milk, water, sugar, little aniseed, a little cardamom powder, and raisins. Before making the batter I mix a teaspoon of white oil and aniseed in the flour. Knead the flour dry with the oil and then I add water and milk along with other ingredients. Sometimes I mix a mashed banana in it. Number of banana depends upon the quantity of the flour. Thanks for the new recipe.

      @thebiologyofleah-- Thanks for visiting and commenting. I'm sometimes amazed with some of the ideas I have. Sometimes they are happy accidents and other times they are a little more thought out. Living in Arizona, we don't exactly have very many cold days. For example, it's 66 degrees F right now. We had A LOT of hot chocolate in our pantry, between single serving pouches and the K-cups for our Keurig machine. I was hoping I could somehow use up the packets (because we had more hot chocolate than cold weather left) and reserve the k-cups for drinking. My first thought was, "I wonder if putting some in my favorite pancake recipe would actually work?" Amazingly, it did. Yogurt will do amazing things for your pancakes; I promise. I hope you get a chance to try it and you'll have to let me know how you like the pancakes :)

      @Victoria Lynn-- Thanks for the pin! I'm glad you enjoyed this recipe. While we Americans interchangeably use "hot cocoa" and "hot chocolate," there is a difference. Hot cocoa is made with real chocolate while the latter is made with powder. Hot cocoa also contains more fat and "cocoa butter" therefore tasting better. If you made a cup of hot chocolate for a friend visiting from another country, and called it "hot cocoa," they might be expecting something different and maybe even disappointed in the end. Thanks for the great question!

      @Stephanie Henkel-- Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting.

      @Glimmer Twin Fan-- Thanks so much for the visit and great comment. You ask a great question that I can "kind of" answer. My husband is the predominant waffle maker in the family and we have a few store-bought mixes we really like. Those call for water and one time, I used milk instead because I just feel like between the two, milk will always yield a yummier result. However... my waffles made with the mix and milk were very soggy and not crispy like a good waffle should be. My husband blamed the milk. I also tried my strawberry yogurt recipe in the waffle iron. That recipe is just like this but without the hot chocolate powder and again they were soggy and flimsy (yummy but not waffle-y). I wish I was a food scientist so I could say why or how it happens, but I'm not. If you feel like experimenting, you may want to substitute water for milk although who knows if the yogurt also plays a role in ruining the waffle-y-ness. Good luck and thanks again :)

Every other Saturday, I cook between 700 and 1000 pancakes on a commercial grill. I add only cinnamon. I like your tips on making pancakes, especially the one about not pressing down the pancake. I've trained people about that so they will remain fluffy. Thanks for this fun and yummy hub, Heather. Voted up, useful, and awesome.

      Oh, Yum! As a devout chocoholic, I love this idea! If I go to a restaurant that offers chocolate chip pancakes, I'm sure to order them!

      I have an electric griddle, but it's awkward to get out. I use a similar-sized one that I bought at a camping store. It fits across 2 burners, and I, too, get 6 pancakes per batch.

      My (lazy cook) preference is to simply use biscuit mix and add an egg and either water or milk. I guess that would work--just add the packets to that, or a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder.
