Grandma’s Yeast Pancakes recipe is pretty traditional and doesn’t contain anything shocking – but boy is it good! I’m not usually a big pancake person but these I like. They aren’t too sweet by themselves and they are so much more light and fluffy than your traditional disk of dense cake. They are also super easy to make. You can make the batter and then cook them immediately, but they are even better if you make the yeast mixture the night before and allow it to get really active.
Grandma’s recipe card says to just mix all ingredients until smooth and cook. You can totally do that and these pancakes will be great. If you can, though, mix up the yeast mixture (yeast, 1 Cup of flour, milk and water) the night before and you’ll get an even better result. Plus, that leaves less to do the next morning.
As will all pancake recipes, this one is just the canvas on which to build! While the first side is cooking, feel free to add any toppings you want: chocolate chips, sliced bananas, blueberries, chopped pecans, etc. And then, of course, when you’re ready to eat you can dress ’em up even more.
Treat yourself to these super easy and extra special pancakes soon! They can certainly warm up a winter morning. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments or see of photo of your end result on Instagram (@bdhbakes).
