Caramelized Banana Pancakes: When there’s whey, there’s a will.

  1. Pancakes sound amazing and I am inspired to use whey! But how did you use your slow-cooker to make yogurt? I vaguely recall a yogurt episode you did….but alas forgot.

    1. It’s easy! I poured in the milk, then set it to high for a couple of hours until it reached 180 degrees/warm and foamy with a skin, just short of boiling. Then I left the lid ajar and let it cool to 110 degrees/warm, but not hot, to the touch. Swirled in a few dollops of Greek yogurt with live cultures, covered it, wrapped the whole slow cooker in a towel, and let it sit for about 9 hours (6 is minimum). Then voila! Yogurt!

      Slow cookers are good because they retain a lot of heat, and they also heat up slowly so less chance of burnt milk. But the process is the same as with a pot.
