Nothing says "good morning" like these fluffy pancakes topped with a fruity homemade syrup. When I don't have the time to make the syrup, I'll sprinkle a few blueberries over the batter when I spoon it onto the griddle. —Katie Wollgast, Florissant, Missouri

"Yeast pancakes are new to me. It's almost like eating fresh bread for breakfast.

I like that they are fast and foolproof for non morning people like me. I put the berries, sugar and water for the syrup together in a bowl in the fridge, and the cornstarch and sugar in a bowl by the stove so no measuring was required in the morning.
It doesn't say to in the recipe, but I did stir the pancake batter in the morning before cooking the pancakes.
This recipe will be nice for overnight guests."

"not a review, but a question: when a recipe calls for maple syrup, does it need to be the real thing, or can you use the imitation pancake syrup?"
