I was looking for yeast pancakes because my MIL who is Czech and 90 couldn't remember how she made them. Evie, her niece in law, found two for me. Thanks Evie.

These were ok for me, DH like them a bit more. The cinnamon was a bit too forward (this surprised me because usually love lots of cinnamon) and I would be tempted to try them with about half the amount. I also found the last ones I cooked to be gummier though I cooked them all batches the same on the electric griddle. I think if I made them again I use part whole wheat flour which might go with the cinnamon a little more for my tastes. Made for PRMRT

These are heavenly. I love a yeast pancake and the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg takes these to a new level. An incredibly warming and welcome addition to our Sunday morning breakfast table.

My seven-year-old's review: "I love these pancakes - I want to marry them!" That about says it all, I think. :) Other family members were not willing to go to the altar with the pancakes, but they enjoyed them very much. We served them with strawberries and blackberries and maple syrup. Thanks for posting!
