a quickie

I am obsessed with breakfast. And putting yeast in things that usually don’t need or require them. But these yeast pancakes are super fluffy and have an awesome yeasty flavor. Make them. Love them.

Yeast Pancakes 
recipe from Food Wanderings 

You Need:
2 cups flour
2 1/4 teaspoon yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter (half a stick)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix one cup flour, the yeast, and 1 Tablespoon sugar in a bowl. Set aside. Heat the milk and water together until warm (not hot or it will kill the yeast). Mix the milk/water mixture in the flour-yeast mixture. Whisk well. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temp for an hour. In another bowl, mix the eggs together. Pour in the butter and whisk that together. When the first mixture has risen for an hour, stir it down. Add the butter-eggs to it. Mix the remaining 1 cup flour, 1 Tablespoon sugar, baking soda and salt together. Add this into the rest of the batter; stir well. Heat up your electric griddle or a cast iron skillet. Brush with oil or butter or spray with cooking spray (I usually just use the cooking spray). Scoop the pancake batter into whatever size pancakes you want (keeping in mind they do expand so you know, don’t make a huge one). Cook until the top is bubbled and the bottom is browned, flip, cook on the other side until cooked through.

 the picture sucks and that’s because I sat down and heartily dug in without thinking first that I ought to get a photo. Sorry.
