Amazing French Toast with Yogurt Syrup
I have posted many breakfast foods on this blog over the years, but this one might be one of my favorites! Buttermilk pancakes were a staple in our home growing up and so I have tried to continue the tradition of making a warm breakfast for my kids as often as time allows (some weeks more than others). I do have to admit, that it is not purely out of the kindness of my heart that I make big breakfasts, but more because I LOVE a good breakfast myself! I am also a BIG fan of butter syrup. Why you ask? Well, a cube of butter, sugar, some vanilla, cream, etc. What is there not to like about that?? Well, this yogurt twist on the traditional butter syrup is AWESOME!! I made this syrup and the yogurt pancakes three times in one week. They are probably the most fluffy and soft pancakes I have ever had–even more so than my mom’s traditional buttermilk recipe.
I am usually a die hard when it comes to adding wheat flour into every recipe possible, but if you can get yourself to eat the pure, unhealthy, no nutritional value white flour for a change, these pancakes are worth the splurge. They are so light and airy, the wheat flour might just ruin the texture.
Give these recipes a try the next time you have a few extra minutes to make a special breakfast for your family–they will be a hit! One tip for PERFECT French Toast: use homemade whole wheat bread–it makes your French toast more rich, dense and healthy. I also add a little vanilla, nutmeg, and sugar to my egg mixture of my French toast and it makes them even more delicious![buymeapie-recipe id=’790′]
