Fluffy yogurt pancakes

A perfect dish that you can serve for breakfast, dinner, but also as a dessert when you serve it, for example, with ice cream and strawberry topping. Enjoy your meal!


  • 120 g plain flour
  • 2 spoons of granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup full-fat yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup whole milk, optional
  • salted butter, maple syrup, honey and/or jam to serve


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Turn it regularly to make sure it is heated evenly.
  3. Once the pan is hot, reduce the heat to medium and keep the surface hot. (You want the drop of water to bounce on it, but not splash, that’s too hot.)
  4. The right temperature and maintaining an even pan temperature is the key to well-made fritters.
  5. While the pan is heating, prepare the batter.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  7. In another bowl, mix the yogurt and eggs.
  8. Add the yogurt and egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix.
  9. Stir in the melted butter or oil.
  10. If the batter is too thick (which can happen based on the consistency of the yogurt used), slowly add 1/4 to 1/3 cup milk.
  11. Spray the pan with oil.
  12. Spoon the batter onto the pan and form fritters, which you fry until bubbles form on the surface, about 2 minutes.
  13. Flip the fritters over with a spatula and fry until golden – about another 2 minutes.
  14. Work in batches and fry only as many fritters as will fit in the pan without them touching each other.
  15. Transfer the fritters to a plate and serve hot with butter, maple syrup, honey or jam.

7 tips to have the best pancakes every time

  1. Check the freshness of the baking powder . If your baking powder is old or expired, you’ll end up with pancakes that are flat, not light and fluffy.
  2. Whisk in the dry ingredients to avoid large lumps .
  3. Do not mix the dough , otherwise it will be stiff and sticky. If you have beaten the dry ingredients, combine them with the wet ones by just mixing them lightly with a spoon.
  4. Let the dough rest for at least 15 minutes .
  5. Use a large pan, ideally a grill pan .
  6. Always wipe the pan thoroughly between batches of fritters and use new oil/butter.
  7. Give your fritters enough attention . Do they brown too quickly? Turn off the heat a little and let the pan cool for a minute before the next batch. Does it stick a little or a lot? Add more butter or oil.
