Blueberry Vanilla Buttermilk Greek Yogurt Pancakes - fluffy & tender pancakes!

Mother’s day is right around the corner. Each and every day I thank God how lucky I am to have a Mother who is kind, selfless, caring, and encouraging.

My mom lifts me up when I’m down, encourages me to always be the best person I can be, and absolutely loves me unconditionally. After my father passed away several years ago, my mom and I became inseparable. I’ve learned to keep the people you love close, let the little things go, and be appreciative of what you have.

Giving back to Mothers is such a hard thing to do. How can you give someone something who has given you everything? You really can’t. But making her pancakes is pretty close. They’re made with love after all.

These pancakes are incredibly fluffy, moist, and absolutely melt in your mouth. And there’s actually TWO secret ingredients that keep them light, fluffy and tender:

Buttermilk: The tang and richness it brings to baked goods is undeniable. I promise you’ll notice the difference. It’s slightly acidic and so when mixed with baking powder, it will allow the pancakes to rise and keep them from breaking down. The result is a tender fluffy pancake that will leave you speechless – promise.

Greek Yogurt: Adding greek yogurt to pancakes makes them the holy grail of breakfasts, I swear. It helps to thicken up the batter, but still leaves you with the lightest pancake. Pretty magical.

Apple Cider Cornmeal Pancakes made with touch of maple syrup and sausage — a great breakfast!

In the realm of comfort food, there is one thing that dominates breakfast: pancakes.

I remember when I was little and my Dad used to make me the thinnest pancakes — it was such a treat to wake up to! Later in life, I was a huge fan of thick and fluffy chocolate chip pancakes. To this day, every time I visit my best friend’s house from high school, I always request that her mom make her famous chocolate chip pancakes — they’re still my absolute favorite.

To be honest, I really love all pancakes because I only get to have them once in a while. And when I do, you better believe I load them up with creamy, warm peanut butter AND maple syrup. That combo CAN’T be beat… unless you’re throwing bacon into the mix. Then OMG, just stop it!

I was all set to make some apple cider donuts, but had a craving for pancakes and happily stumbled into this recipe.

Since it’s November and we’re in full Fall season, I decided to use Apple Cider in my pancakes for a sweet pancake with a bit of tang and spice. I didn’t use just any apple cider though, I used new SweeTango Apple Cider, made from SweeTango apples. It’s sweet and full of citrus notes with a touch of spice — basically unlike any apple cider out there. MAJOR!

Have you had a SweeTango apple before? I LOVE them. I find them a lot in Minnesota during the fall; they’re a cross between a¬†Honeycrisp and Zestar, so you know they’re good!

Anyway back to pancake chat…

For some weird reason, I had a craving for breakfast sausage. Usually I stick to turkey bacon, but I was feeling like some chicken maple breakfast sausage and thought it would be fantastic in the pancakes.

I mean, just imagine biting into a pancake wrapped sausage. Dreamy, right?
