1.Preheat the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet to 350ºF.
2.Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
3.Beat eggs into milk with a whisk or spoon, pour in butter and yogurt, and stir to combine. Make a hole in the center of the flour mixture; pour the liquid in, stirring gently until the batter has just come together (it will have some lumps). Do not over-beat or the pancakes will be tough.
4.For each pancake, pour a scant ¼-cup batter into Skillet (you will get 6 pancakes per batch). Cook 3 minutes or until bubbles have formed on tops, and bottoms are lightly browned. Turn pancakes and cook other sides until done, about 1½ or 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.
Blueberry pancakes: toss 1 cup berries with 1 tablespoon flour from recipe. Stir in gently after blending batter.
