Heat griddle to 375°F or heat 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Grease with canola oil if necessary (or spray with cooking spray before heating).
In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In medium bowl, beat eggs, vanilla yogurt, water and oil with egg beater or wire whisk until well blended.
Pour egg mixture all at once into flour mixture; stir until moistened.
For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter from cup or pitcher onto hot griddle. Cook pancakes 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbly on top, puffed and dry around edges. Turn; cook other side 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
Top each serving (2 pancakes) with 1/4 cup sliced strawberries and 1 to 2 tablespoons strawberry yogurt.
2 cups flour (we like half all-purpose, half whole wheat)
6 teaspoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pumpkin (canned)
1 3/4 cups milk, low-fat
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Wash hands and clean food preparation area.
Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a large mixing bowl.
In a medium bowl, combine egg, canned pumpkin, milk and vegetable oil, mixing well.
Add wet ingredients to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Batter may be lumpy. (For thinner batter, add more milk).
Lightly coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium.
Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto hot griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to burst, then flip pancakes and cook until golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes about 1 dozen 3 1/2 inch pancakes.
Preheat griddle. In medium bowl, stir or sift dry ingredients together.
In a separate bowl, beat egg, brown sugar, buttermilk, and oil together. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; batter should be slightly lumpy.
Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto sprayed or seasoned hot griddle.
Flip the pancake when bubbles appear on surface; turn only once.
Get creative and make these recipes your own. You can add delicious mix-ins to any pancake batter! Some of our favorites are blueberries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, dried coconut, raspberries, and sliced strawberries. Happy eating!
