I was skeptical, to say the least, of Delicious Temptations before my first visit. Tucked away in an indiscrete corner of northwest Little Rock, in a dreary strip mall, nearly completely hidden behind a Party City store, what good could come from this? Well, a whole lot, folks. What I found inside the welcoming doors of Delicious Temptations was, well, as you may have expected, delicious.

Only about a third of Delicious Temptations’ menu is geared towards breakfast, but here is where you will find some really wonderful things happening. And, in my humble opinion, the shining star in this constellation of breakfast beauties is the yogurt pancakes.

I’m really not even a big pancake guy, to be honest. I mean, I like them, but they are not typically my carb of choice when I sit down to breakfast. But after hearing such wonderful, life-altering tales about these near heroic pancakes, I knew this was one flapjack I could not pass up. What makes these pancakes so special is, undoubtedly, the yogurt. And whoever thought to throw yogurt into the pancake batter is nothing less brilliant, I’m talking Mensa level here, people. The tangy, creamy yogurt gives the light, thin cakes a tart, slightly sour flavor, that pairs perfectly with the addition of fresh fruit. I prefer them with strawberries or bananas, but it’s hard to go wrong with any of the optional mix-ins which include chocolate chips, pecans, blueberries, apple, walnuts or coconut. So good, I didn’t even use the syrup. I don’t know who developed this lovely recipe, but what they have created is pure magic, like the Harry Potter of Hotcakes.
