yeast pancakes

Hubby and I love to watch the food network after our work is done in the evening.  After the kids are in bed he usually goes down to his office and I usually have a few hours of sewing or some other project to work on.  When we are both done, we watch a little tv together before bed. This is why I stay up too late and am tired in the mornings. It's the food networks fault.  On one show we watched the other night, they were showing yeast pancakes. We were both intrigued.

 I made up a batch the next morning.  These sort of have the taste of the farmers market waffles minus the heaping amounts of sugar and extra butter. I thought these sour cream pancakes  from Pioneer Woman may be the new love in my life, then after several makings, we went back to the old standby pancake recipe.  The new go to pancake recipe might be these.

2 1/4 c flour
3 T sugar
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon (will do less next time)
2 1/4 t yeast
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c warm milk
1/4 c melted butter
1 egg


Dissolve yeast in warm milk.  Add other ingredients and let rise for @ 30 minutes.  Scoop onto hot pan or skillet and brown a few minutes on each side. Treat just like regular pancakes.  You can add chocolate chips, berries, etc.  That's our plan for the next batch.
