These delicious easy breakfast pancakes are sure to hit the spot. A fantastic recipe with a protein boost from greek yogurt they are soft, slightly sweet and so more-ish.


  • 1 1/2 cups (around 185g) plain white flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup (250ml) of milk
  • 1/2 cup (125ml or if weighing around 140g) of greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • up to 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. On a stove top, pre-heat a non-stick frypan over a very low heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients with a whisk until a smooth batter is formed that has no lumps. If the mixture looks a little thick at this point, add an extra tablespoon of milk and whisk through again.
  3. Increase the temperature of your hob to a medium-low heat (Note 1) and add a teaspoon or two of olive oil and when heated, add 1/3 cup (80mls) of batter to the centre of the pan. See Note 2.
  4. Pan fry until a number of bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes – this will take around 1.5 minutes, the flip the pancake over to fry the bottom side.
  5. Fry for a further 45 seconds or until golden brown then remove the pancake from the pan and place on a plate.
  6. Repeat until all the batter has been used, adding a teaspoon of olive oil when the pan begins to get dry and the pancakes feel like they are starting to stick when you turn them. See Note 3.
  7. Serve with your favourite toppings. Note 4.


  1. You may need to adjust the heat as you are cooking the pancakes. I get best results over a lower temperature. Too high the pancakes can stick to the pan, too low they can get a little rubbery.
  2. I like to measure my pancakes with a measuring cup which means the pancakes are a uniform size.
  3. If you have a larger pancake you can cook multiple pancakes at once which will speed up the process. I just get the best results cooking one at a time in my favourite frypan to make pancakes in.
  4. There are a list of topping options included in the blog post above.
