Easy Recipe for Pancakes

Making homemade pancakes is pretty easy stuff. This simple pancake mix just needs a few more ingredients and a couple more minutes than its boxed counterpart. The yummiest and most important ingredient in this recipe is of course, the strawberry yogurt. Adding strawberry yogurt to your homemade pancake batter is a great way to finish up yogurt and make some of the yummiest pancakes I have ever tasted. If you're looking for quick and easy breakfast ideas and you love strawberry yogurt, then this new spin on pancakes will satisfy your tummy, wallet, and schedule. If you'd like to make strawberry yogurt pancakes using a store-bought pancake mix instead, see middle of this article for more info.

**Cooking with Yogurt

If you have single serving cups of Yoplait yogurt, use one serving cup which is 6 ounces.

If you have a large container of Yoplait yogurt (the 2 pound plastic container), scoop out one measuring cup full (this will be approximately 8 ounces of yogurt.

Both ways taste great.

5 Tips for Making the Perfect Strawberry Pancake

Pancakes can be finicky but this list can help!

  • I always mix my pancake batter with the whisk attachments on my electric hand mixer by Sunbeam (seen above in pictures). While some experts say it's best to mix by hand, I have noticed my pancakes always come out fluffier when I do it "my way." The mixer was one of my favorite wedding gifts from my sister and brother-in-law because it comes with a great bowl and I use the whisk attachments just about every day.

  • I like to put my pancake batter in my Martha Stewart batter dispenser (seen above in pictures). It might seem like one of those fancy kitchen toys you buy and never use or need, but I love it and use it almost daily. It's a great way to control and evenly dispense your batter, keeping your cook area clean and your pancakes about the same sizes. I use it when making cupcakes too because I hate getting messy batter on the sides of my cupcake pans and papers. Mine is sold exclusively at Macy's, but Amazon sells very similar styles.

  • I love cooking my pancakes on my Presto electric griddle (seen above in pictures). I've had it for almost a year and use it often. When cooking pancakes on it, every single pancake cooks picture-perfect every time. They say the first pancake never comes out right, but I barely remember those days. I can make about six 4" pancakes at a time with ease. Forget spending forever standing at the stove with one frying pan or trying to captain multiple pans at once. The griddle cooks the pancakes evenly and quickly so breakfast is ready faster. This method is perfect for when you have breakfast guests.

  • Flip your pancakes a grand total of just once. Over-flipping will overcook your pancake and begin to make it tough. I have personally tested this and it's true! This is another reason why the electric griddle is so helpful. I would always over-flip when using a pan.

  • Don't press your pancakes down with your spatula. You're not coaxing them to cook any faster. This only deflates their heavenly fluffiness. Just be patient and let them do their thing.

        Heather, these looks so PERFECT! Whenever I make pancakes for my kids they end up misshapen, crispy on the edges, and a tad gooey in the middle. Yikes! Using the pancake pourer and griddle would probably help with that...
