Cheap Recipe Blog‘s Yeast Pancakes (Flappers) Recipe
Makes about 2 dozen
Adapted from MarthaStewart.com

1 ½ cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package active dry yeast
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons melted butter
3 large egg yolks
Oil, for cooking

Topping options:
Fresh berries
Chopped pecans
Maple syrup
Sour cream-brown sugar topping (mix ½ cup sour cream with ¼ cup brown sugar)

1. Heat milk in a small saucepan over low heat, or in a microwave-safe bowl until lukewarm (between 110F and 115F).

2. Transfer milk to a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar and yeast. Let stand for about 5 minutes, or until mixture turns foamy.

3. Add flour, salt, remaining sugar, butter, and egg yolks to yeast mixture. Mix until batter is smooth. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Move to a warm place and allow the dough to rise about 1 ½ hours, or until doubled in size.

4. Heat a tablespoon or so of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour in ¼ cup of batter at a time, keeping pancakes 2 inches apart. Cook for approximately 3 minutes on one side, or until golden brown. Flip and cook for another minute or so, until golden brown. Keep pancakes warm in oven until ready to serve.
