favorite fluffy pancakes




note: this makes a large batch of pancakes. you can freeze them (with sheets of wax paper in between the pancakes to keep them from sticking), refrigerate them for a few days, or scale the recipe down by 2/3 or 1/3 if you prefer. it will still work.
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 1 cup yogurt (Greek or regular) 
  • 2 cups milk 
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (spooned into measure and leveled) 
  • 6 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder, sifted or forced through a sieve 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt 
place the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl or jug and melt in microwave (30-60 seconds). add the yogurt and milk, then the eggs. whisk until smooth. add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, and whisk just until combined (a few lumps are fine, and even preferable).

cook over medium heat in buttered skillet. pour out ¼ – ½ cups of batter at a time, and cook until bubbles start to dry out on top and edges begin to firm. flip and cook 30-60 seconds longer, until middle of pancake springs back when you press it lightly with your finger. adjust heat under pan so pancakes get as brown as you'd like during this cooking process. stack on a plate until all are done.
