Browned Butter Power Pancakes
Happy National Pancake Day! In celebration, I made browned butter pancakes with Greek yogurt. They were delicious, and now my taste buds are singing with joy. If you have never tried browned butter pancakes or Greek yogurt pancakes, you must. Read on…
Cooking your pancakes in butter creates a crispy exterior and soft interior. The browned butter has a light, sweet, and nutty flavor that will make your pancakes taste amazing! See those brown rings? Those are packed full of flavor.
I love adding Greek yogurt to pancakes because it not only adds protein, but it also gives the pancakes a thick, yet fluffy consistency. So this morning, I thought I would combine these two pancake recipes and make the ultimate fluffy, thick pancake with a crispy exterior and tons of flavor!
You can top these however you would like. I am a big fan of berries and cream, but maple syrup was also delicious! (yes I tried both) So whip some up and enjoy National Pancake Day!
Don’t worry that breakfast has passed, you can make them for lunch or dinner!
