  • 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup full-fat vanilla honey Greek yogurt (I highly recommend Greek Gods)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (plus 1-3 tablespoons)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest OR 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
  • Unsalted butter, for cooking


  1. Stir together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla. For a fun hint of flavor add in EITHER lemon zest or cinnamon (not both!) Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing only until JUST combined. Be careful to not overmix.

  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet OR griddle over low to medium-low heat until it bubbles. Pour the pancake batter into the pan to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles appear on top and the underside is lightly browned. Flip the pancakes and then cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until browned. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, add more butter to the pan, and continue cooking pancakes until all the batter is used. 

  3. Serve with maple syrup OR blueberry syrup (see post for recipe).
