For some reason, Mom never liked to make pancakes. Use to love to go over to my aunts where she would make them for me. We finally started frequenting a local pancake house on Sundays, so the family's need for pancakes was satisfied. Now I love to make soda pancakes. Even better are yeast pancakes, but they take a while. Probably since Mom was brought up on yeast pancakes, that is probably why she never made them. Too much to do with her little free time. After doing the instant pizza in the last instructable, it hit me to try doing yeast pancakes with the instant pizza yeast. (aka no rise time required.) So here we go.
Step 1: Ingredients.
Will be making about a half a batch of what people might usually make.
1 1/4 - cups all-purpose flour
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 - packet instant pizza dough yeast
1/2 - teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 - cup warm milk (water or condensed milk in a pinch)
1/8 - cup butter, melted (or cooking oil)
1 - small egg (2 small eggs or 1 large egg for full batch)
1 1/2 - tablespoons white sugar or brown sugar for more interesting taste.
Step 2: Method.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar (if used), salt, cinnamon and yeast; mix well.
Add vanilla, milk, butter (or oil), and egg until well blended.
Give them time to proof a little bit.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
Stir the batter with a whisk. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
Brown on both sides
Keep warm in a 200 or so degree Fahrenheit oven till all are done.
Note: Putting them in 425 degree Fahrenheit oven using a pre-greased surface would probably work better.
Step 3: Serve.
Top the pancakes with the syrup and or fruit.
(Probably going back to the old fashion way.)
