Yeast Pancakes and Waffles for Breakfast


                                     Yes, we do make real maple syrup here in Ohio!

The USA produces over 4,000,000 gallons of REAL MAPLE SYRUP annually, with Vermont, New York and Maine leading the nation. Our neighbors in Canada produce even more, and Canada usually produces close to 70% of all the REAL MAPLE SYRUP produced in the world.

To help make certain this pure and natural product is fully enjoyed, we're featuring a yeasty twist on traditional pancake and waffle recipes. As a bonus, these recipes can be made and refrigerated the night before, so all you need to do is heat up your skillet, griddle, or waffle maker and start cooking while your coffee is brewing (and bacon sure goes well with both pancakes and waffles).

Yeast Pancakes Ingredients

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 package Red Star Active Dry Yeast (2 and 1/4 TSP, 1/4 ounce, 7 grams)
1/4 Cup Water
1 and 1/4 cup whole milk
2 Large Eggs
1/4 Cup Melted Butter
2 TBSP Sugar
1 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 TSP Salt



Combine 1 cup of flour with the yeast in your EZ DOH container and mix well with a whisk. Combine the milk and water and heat to about 125 degrees. Add this heated liquid to the flour/yeast and mix well with either a whisk or the EZ DOH mixing attachment. Then cover this mixture and let it rise for one hour in a warm spot.

While this batter is rising, beat the 2 eggs and melt the butter. Let the butter cool down and then mix these 2 ingredients together.

Combine the remaining one cup of flour with the sugar, baking soda, and salt.

After the batter has risen, stir it down and add all the other ingredients and mix them thoroughly using the mixing attachment. Since this is a batter, there's little resistance (compared to any bread dough) so this can be a safe and fun job for young children and people of any ability level.

After a thorough mixing the batter should be smooth. You could certainly go right ahead and make your pancakes now, or as mentioned above refrigerate the batter until the following morning. This recipe should yield 16 pancakes (4 inches in diameter).


Note: If you refrigerate the batter overnight, you'll need to add a little milk or water to get the right consistency to the batter. Add blueberries or vanilla or whatever you like to the batter, but don't forget to have butter and maple syrup available for toppings.

Yeast Waffles

Since we enclose a sample of Red Star yeast with our EZ DOH mixers and feature their yeast in most of our recipes (and since they have some great pictures of their waffles!), here's a link to their recipe: . Their website is a great resource for understanding yeast, and they have many wonderful recipes and tips (and pictures like this one).
