Nicea’s Yogurt Pancakes with Homemade Syrup are the best pancakes ever! The yogurt in the pancakes and in the syrup gives both a rich texture and flavor.

Yogurt Pancakes with Homemade Syrup

My sister-in-law, Nicea, made these for me the last time I went to visit her. They are probably the best pancakes I have ever had cooked on a griddle. Normally, I am not the biggest pancake fan, but I could eat these yogurt pancakes all day. YUM! You definitely need to try these! They are soft and fluffy, yet perfectly dense. After you see how easy (and DELICIOUS) these yogurt pancakes are, you will never go back to making pancakes from a mix again.

The Homemade Yogurt Syrup:

The pancakes on their own are amazing but the syrup… the syrup is liquid heaven. It is smooth, slightly creamy, and perfectly sweet. I really could probably drink it through a straw. I promise, you will not be disappointed. It is SO GOOD. Try it on waffles, French toast, crepes, even ice cream!

Ingredients

For the pancakes:

For the syrup:

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients. If it seems too thick, add milk a little at a time until it reaches a good “pancake batter” consistency.
  • Bring first four ingredients to a boil in a large pot. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and stir constantly for 5 minutes. Add baking soda and vanilla. Remove from stove and serve over pancakes, waffles or french toast. (The syrup will be thin– this is normal. After it cools off a bit it thickens up. Store any extra syrup in the fridge for later use.)
  • **The baking soda will make it boil high so make sure you use a large pot.***

    I made this today for breakfast, it was the best pancake breakfast ever! I used greek yogurt and and the batter was really thick so I added some milk and it was perfect and fluffy, so decadent! And that syrup!

    1. Wow thank you so much for the nice comment! So glad you enjoyed these pancakes so much. You are so right about that syrup 😉 I could drink it with a straw lol

  2. I love melt-in-your-mouth pancakes and when I stumbled across this recipe, my life-long search for the perfect recipe is now complete. Then when I thought it couldn’t get better, I made the syrup. Now I can die a happy man!

    We have made this recipe for many visiting family, including some cousins that are living in Saudi Arabia for work. Now their Saudi friends are enjoying it. Thank you.

    1. Wow, thank you so much for your kind comment! So glad you like the pancakes (and syrup)! Thank you for sharing with your friends and family 😀

  3. I am excited to try these. I do weight watchers and I count points. Do you have any idea how many points they would be?

    1. We don’t have that information on hand. You can plug the recipe into the WW recipe calculator and it should be able to tell you. Hope this helps!

  4. Hi. Just tried both the pancake and syrup for breakfast today. Thumbs up for the recipe!
    Anyone know how long can I keep the syrup?

    Made these this morning and they are AMAZING!! Not to salty, just perfect. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    1. Yes, this is a yummy breakfast! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe. Thank you for letting us know! 🙂

  6. Can you come up with any substitutes for the sugar, butter and corn syrup for those looking for healthier alternatives ? Thanks!

  7. Is there a trick to getting the pancakes fluffy like your in the picture? I made these today and they were good but I was wishing they were fluffy? I think if I was to pour the batter thicker it would have spread through the pan and just got wider and thinner. Any suggestions? Love your sight

    1. You probably need to add a little more flour so the batter isn’t as runny. Depending on where you are elevation-wise it can turn out not as thick. Every time I make this, the batter is pretty thick!

  9. We enjoyed these pancakes for dinner tonight and my husband declared them to be the best pancakes he has ever eaten (better than Alton Brown’s!). Funny thing is he turned his nose up while I was making the syrup and said he wouldn’t eat any of it. As soon as he saw it and tasted just a drop he changes his mind. He went back for seconds. Yum. All the kids enjoyed them too…these are our new house pancake. Thanks so much for sharing.

  10. We loved these! They're very filling. I couldn't believe we had leftovers…they were SO good! These will be making a regular appearance in our home. Syrup too! We're pretty picky, so that's a high compliment. 😉

  11. Thanks for this recipe, it is delicious! I have to say it is now one of my favorite pancake recipes. I have made a couple of changes though that I thought I would share. The dough is very thick, so I always add some milk to the batter (about 1/2-3/4 c.). I also use 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 yogurt in the batter and it works out perfectly. I have even used vanilla yogurt and it is even better! For the syrup I also have tried vanilla and strawberry yogurt and it is amazing. We serve these pancakes with fresh berries on top and the strawberry syrup and they are like heaven on a plate. Thanks again for sharing!!!

      Haven’t tried it yet, but that’s 1/2# of butter!! No wonder the syrup is so good! It’s nothing but sugar and butter!!!
      I would have to find a way to make these a little healthier!!

  12. So, I am on you blog this morning looking up the Nothing Bundt Cake recipe, AGAIN. It is my favorite cake, but I want MORE! I was just in Nothing Bundt Cake the other day and sampled the raspberry white chocolate…it was to die for. I also LOVE their red velvet cake. PLEASE make some more! I want those recipes so badly, and I know you are the one who can figure it out for me. Thanks for all the great recipes.

  13. Yum! I am excited to try something other than the blan bisquick pancakes. Thanks for the recipe!
    Love your site!
