Yeast Pancakes Recipe

These tender and golden pancakes from Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas are a little thicker than traditional versions, so they make a substantial breakfast. Be sure to make plenty, because the leftovers can be used in the unique recipes that follow.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + rising Cook: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups warm milk (120° to 130°)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted


  • 1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add milk, eggs and butter; beat for 2 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown. Yield: about 1 dozen.

"Delicious!! These are some of the best pancakes I've made!! Wonderful flavor and texture...and I like the fact that the batter only rises for 30min. I did, however, add two tablespoons of sugar instead of 2 teaspoons, and they were just right. not too sweet. Would make them again!!"
