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
¼ 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
¼ 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.
