Yoghurt and Cinnamon Pancakes
My favourite food is pancakes, without doubt. Big pancakes, small pancakes, sweet ones, savoury ones, flat ones, puffy ones... YUMmmmmmmmmm.
When I was younger, my mum would make a box (!!) of crepes filled with sweet curd (lithuanian cottage cheese) and vanilla, and every day I would gently pan-fry 2 of them for lunch and have them with sour cream and jam. I did this for years! It never got boring. And whenever I would go to my grandmothers' houses, the only thing i would ask for was pancakes. I remember one of the most fascinating meals from my childhood - my great grandfather used to make extremely puffy pancakes with baking soda and raisins. They were so puffy I could hardly fit them in my tiny mouth!
And today I shall share a recipe of really light and amazingly tender pancakes with yoghurt and a little bit of cinnamon.
The recipe serves 2 people for breakfast (or me alone, any time of the day. And I'd probably want some more!!). Basically, it makes 2 full pans of pancakes.
6 tbsp yoghurt
pinch of salt
1 tbsp sugar
3/4 cups flour
about 1/2 tsp cinnamon (you can add more if you want them to be more cinnamon'y)
2 tbsp oil
Beat the eggs, add the yoghurt, mix in the salt and sugar, slowly mix in the flour and oil. Finally add the cinnamon, and mix well. Make sure the non-stick frying pan you're using is very clean, otherwise they might stick. I made my ones small and cute, using 1 tbsp of batter for one pancake, but the design it's up to you. Fry them on a really low heat for about 3-5 minutes each side and serve with whatever you prefer your pancakes.
I stayed loyal to yoghurt and cinnamon and opened some grandma's apple jam later on. Ooooh they are so good! Enjoy!!
