Directions See How It's Made
- THE NIGHT BEFORE your pancake meal, in small saucepan warm the milk to 110F (it should be baby-bottle warm), remove from heat.
- Dissolve in yeast.
- Let mixture stand 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine salt, sugar, and flour in a large mixing bowl.
- Add melted butter to milk mixture.
- Mix wet ingredients into dry and whisk until fully combined.
- Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour , then whisk down to deflate.
- Let stand overnight in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
- In the morning, deflate again, whisk in beaten eggs and vanilla.
- Batter should be runny and spread easily on the griddle.
- Use a 12 inch skillet on medium high heat.
- Make one large flapjack at a time by lifting the skillet off the heat while you pour ½ cup of batter, tilt the pan to cover the bottom surface completely.
- Do not turn until all bubbles pop and the top is basically dry.
- This will ensure a uniform golden brown color and correct texture.
- Serve on a pre-warmed plate in stacks of 2 or 3, they cool off very fast.
- Serves 3-4.
- Tangy, soft and chewy.
- Store the batter one more day for a tangier taste.
