Overnight Yeast Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

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?

    Delicious! Light texture and the sauce was quite good.
