Wisconsin Diner Griddle Cakes

"Made with strawberry yogurt and buttermilk, these are light and tender and very flavorful. Have also tried with vanilla yogurt, also delicious. From the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, changed to my tastes. In Wisconsin these would be served with butter and real maple syrup."

Ready In:
12 pancakes




  • Combine first five dry ingredients.
  • In another bowl whisk the egg, yogurt, buttermilk and melted butter. Add the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
  • Heat griddle and 1 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat.
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake. Cook 2 minutes, until golden (these won't bubble as much as regular pancakes so watch closely), flip and cook 2 minutes more, until the center springs back when pressed.
  • Use additional 1 tablespoons butter to grease griddle for next batch, if necessary.

    Good solid pancake. Loved the subtle strawberry flavor. Using butter in the skillet made them a little greasy. I changed to nonstick cooking spray and thought that was much better.

    These had a really great taste! I love the subtle strawberry flavor, it was a great change from ordinary pancakes. When I flipped them they did sort of fall flat and had a bit of a chewy texture. I think I may try adding more baking powder next time to help them get more of a rise. Thanks for posting Kaarin!

    These were good, although as the others have said, the texture was different from what I expected. They were really moist and not very cakey, but had a good flavor. I used vanilla yogurt because that was all I had. I will try making these again with strawberry.

    We liked the flavor of the pancakes even though the texture was a little different. They were a moist pancake which we like. I served them with maple syrup and butter as suggested. My husband said he would like to have them again. Thanks Kaarin. Bullwinkle.

    These were pretty good! The strawberry flavor was a nice addition. Like most yogurt pancakes, they usally come out more rubbery than normal pancakes, but it was a nice change from the norm! Thanks for the recipe!


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
