I have never been a fan of pancakes, until now. I found them too filling and usually too heavy. However, these pancakes are so light and fluffy; I can eat several and not be too full. My husband said they are the best he has ever eaten!
2 cups + 2 Tablespoons cake flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Dash grated nutmeg, optional
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups (16 ounces) plain yogurt
1/4 cup water or milk, plus more if batter is too thick for your taste
1 cup blueberries, rinsed and dried
Homemade pancake syrup, recipe below
Makes approximately 12 pancakes
Note: To use frozen pancakes: Place pancakes on a microwave-safe plate; microwave on high for 40-50 seconds or until heated through.
Note: You can use any flavor of yogurt; I choose to use plain yogurt so I can vary the additions and make several types of pancakes at the same time. The addition of other ingredients is endless, such as: semisweet chocolate chips, dried cranberries, sliced ripe bananas, and coarsely chopped pecans.
