Citrus Berry Pancakes

Sometimes I surprise myself at how big of a mess I can make of a recipe. The first time I made these pancakes, I more than doubled the flour because I was trying to go from memory rather than look at my phone again. To make them work, I added unknown amounts of milk, yogurt, and eggs. The good news was they were delicious. The bad news was I had no idea how I made them.

Obviously I had to make them again. I managed to follow the recipe a little more closely this time. And they still turned out amazingly delicious. So good, I didn’t mind that I made them for myself for Mother’s Day.

Enjoy!

Citrus Berry Pancakes (Makes about 12 pancakes)

Citrus Berry Pancakes

2 large eggs
1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup skim milk, divided (you may not need all of it)
3 tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon lemon or orange zest
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup berries, rinsed and dried

1. Whisk together eggs, yogurt, ¼ cup milk, canola oil, zest, and vanilla in a medium/large bowl.

2. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir together until just combined. Add remaining milk as needed to get batter to desired thickness. Gently fold in berries.

3. Heat skillet to medium to medium-high heat. Spray pan with cooking spray. Pour about ¼ cup of batter per pancake onto skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form, about 4 minutes. Flip. Cook until golden underneath, another 3-4 minutes. These are thick pancakes, so they take a little longer to cook than regular pancakes. You may need to lower the heat to prevent burning.
