Yogurt Pancakes


1 large egg
1 1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp soda
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
chopped pecans (optional)
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.  In a mixing bowl with a whisk, beat together egg and yogurt until smooth.  Add baking soda and mix.  Add flour mixture and stir until smooth.  Add vanilla and butter.  If batter is too thick, add enough water to give it the consistency of hot pudding. 
Pour batter onto a hot, well-oiled griddle, heating to around 350º.  Sprinkle with chopped pecans.  Cook until brown and turn to cook the other side. 
Serve with butter and syrup.  Good eatin'!!!
