Passover Yogurt Pancakes

Passover Yogurt Pancakes

I made these Passover Yogurt Pancakes this morning when craving something “bready”. After some days on my Passover diet, I needed some hearty pancakes for breakfast. I observe Passover but I am not super strict so you may have to adjust the ingredients depending on how strict you are. Look for the seal to be sure. I have heard mixed things about vanilla extract being Kosher for Passover due to the alcohol in the vanilla extract. There are extracts that are alcohol free or feel free to use the vanilla bean itself (scrape out the vanilla beans). I did my research on maple syrup and from what I have read pure maple syrup is Kosher for Passover and imitation syrup is not. Another great reason to use pure maple syrup!

The pancakes are sweet, hearty, and moist.  They are also healthy without any butter or oil.

I let the batter sit in the fridge all night to add some moisture to the pancakes (and to make my morning easier!) Enjoy!

Kid Friendly Tips: Have your child help measure and mix the ingredients. Discuss the ingredients and compare them (e.g. compare cake meal to flour). Have your child pick their favorite fruit to add inside. I used bananas but apples would be just as good. For the apples, I would dice them and fold them in at the end.

[tab title=”Ingredients”]
1 cup of Passover Cake Meal

1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of ground all spice

2-3 tablespoons of light brown sugar

3/4 cup of vanilla yogurt

1 1/4 cup of low fat milk

2 eggs beaten

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup of applesauce

1 banana sliced thin

Pure Maple Syrup for topping (a must!)

[tab title=”Preparation”]
1. Combine cake meal, spices, sugar and salt in one bowl.

2. In another bowl combine yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract.

3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until moistened. Refrigerate overnight.

4. Take batter out of the fridge and fold in banana.

5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto non stick pan and flip until golden brown on each side. Yields 5-7 pancakes depending on how big you make them.

Tip: While you are flipping pancakes keep the ones that are done on a cooling rack in the oven on low temperature. This will keep the pancakes nice, warm and crisp for when you are ready to serve.
