Buttermilk Yeast Pancakes Recipe

I was thinking one day about my Cousins Husband and his quest to find my Grandma's pancake recipe.
I have been thinking through the years that Grandma probably used yeast in the batter. I made them and they were quite good but I don't remember Grandmas pancakes. He was adamant about he fact that Grandma didn't use yeast but the only way she could have made them the way he described was to use yeast. Anyway I made them in the morning and just let them sit on the counter for about 30 minutes before I was going to use them so it could thicken a bit. During that time I fried my bacon and cut up the fruit that we were having.

Buttermilk Yeast Pancakes      
cup warm water
1 pkg. yeast
1 quart buttermilk
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp soda
4 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
cup oil
6 eggs, well beaten

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside.

Combine buttermilk, sugar, and soda in bowl.
Sift together dry ingredients and add to mixture. Mix well.
Add remaining ingredients. Blend.
Mix batter up the night before using and store in refrigerator.
Now I didn't do this I just let the bowl set for a half hour or 45 minutes and it was fine.
Set out first thing in the morning, so batter has time to warm up.

Makes 8 cups batter.
