Yeast-Raised Pancakes


After trying these out, I'm a bit interested in making some yeast-raised waffles. These pancakes are not too sweet and so need generous amounts of maple syrup for a sweeter breakfast.

Yeast-Raised Pancakes
(from Pancakes: From Morning Till Midnight by Dorie Greenspan)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 packet active dry yeast or instant yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 large eggs, beaten


1. Whisk together the flours and salt in a medium bowl. Proof (if necessary) your yeast and sugar in the 1/2 cup warm water. Warm the milk and butter together either on the stove or in the microwave to about 105F. Combine the yeast mixture in with the milk/butter mixture and then pour into the flour mixture. Mix until thoroughly combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and either let it rise overnight in the refrigerator or for an hour or two at room temperature. If you had done the former, let it rest for 20 minutes at room temperature before adding the eggs.
2. Stir down the batter and add in the beaten eggs. Your batter will be smooth and not your typical lumpy pancake batter.
3. Ladle onto a medium-hot skillet and fry until the surface is bubbly and golden on the bottom. Flip over and cook for another minute or two until golden brown.
4. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

I like your blog. It is very informative and involves a lot hard work to capture those pictures. I am certain the baking communities can learn some baking skill from you blog.

I like this yeast raised pancake. It is easier to prepare than ordinary pancake. I don’t have to prepare everything from scratch during morning rush hour. Every just throw into mixing bowl and let the hardworking yeast do the fermentation job overnight. How to cook a perfect round shaped pancake? Can I use http://www.bakingfrenzy.com/2-egg-rings-p-388.html (egg ring ) as the cooking mould? Proper pancake pan is quite pricey.

I found a few ways to make pancake brown very easily. 1. add ½ tsp baking soda into the mixture. 2. add 1-2 tb honey/corn syrup will do the job too. 3. add ½ tsp dried malt extract .

sokeleng: Thanks for your comment. ^_^ I'm sure you can use egg rings to shape the pancake. I just had some cheap heart-shaped pancake rings that I found at the store but you can use just about anything that can get put on a frying pan to shape your batter. :)

And thank you for the tip for how to make them browner. I'll have to try it. ^_^

Once you've eaten real yeast pancakes, baking powder pancakes are total evilness.

I've been using this recipe to make waffles exclusively. The pancakes were better than most, but for waffles this batter is perfect! It usually makes 4 full size waffles.
