This was a fun adventure for breakfast this morning! I had some trouble getting the batter to cook through without flipping...I did finally resort to flipping for a few seconds just before removing from the pan. I probably shouldn't have put "pancakes" in the minds of my kids before serving, as these taste nothing like a typical American pancake LOL. The yeast flavor is pretty strong, but surprisingly the turmeric is not. We enjoyed these a number of ways; my kids liked them spread with jam, my baby liked them dipped in maple syrup, and I loved the honey/butter topping (make that even if you don't make the pancakes, it was great!!). I don't know if my pan was smaller, but I got waaayy more than 12...more like 24! Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.
