Yeast Raisin Pancakes

Puffy, soft, fluffy and sweet pancakes. Just like the ones your grandma used to make. I craved them so much that I ate all of them. Yes. I know, I ate sixteen pancakes.
And yes, there's a Christmas tree in the background of the photos. I really don't know why I am keeping it. 

Yeast Pancakes
200g flour
4g dry yeast (1/2 packet)
2 tbsp sugar (20g)
Pinch salt
100g raisins
250ml milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Butter, for frying
Sour cream or greek yogurt, for serving (optional)

1) In a large bowl, combine together the flour, yeast, sugar and salt.

2) In a small saucepan, heat milk to lukewarm. Mix in the egg.

3) Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir just until combined. Mix in the raisins. Place in a warm place and let rise for an hour.

4) Heat some butter in a large saucepan. Drop 1-2 tablespoons of batter and fry on both sides until lightly browned. Serve with some sour cream or greek yogurt.

Serves 16 medium size pancakes.

  1. Oh my gosh these look DELICIOUS!! I tried some yeast pancakes awhile back and they weren't very sweet and kind of disappointing. Yours look FANTASTIC though! I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of raisins in things...but maybe I'll add bananas instead :)

    1. Thanks! Well, I think these pancakes have enough sweetness, but you can always adjust it. Bananas sound interesting! If you don't like raisins, maybe you could try adding another dried fruit, for example, dried cranberries? (I just came up with this idea - cranberries should taste awesome in yeast pancakes!) Thanks again for your comment :)
