Brewers yeast pancakes
I’m not sure if you’re really supposed to do this but… I made yeast pancakes with brewing yeast. I just took a basic yeast pancake recipe I found online and substituted about 1/4th packet of Safbrew for whatever bakers yeast they had me using. T-58 I’d had sitting in my basement for over a year. Surprisingly, it worked pretty well. I definitely saw some rise to the batter after 45 minutes and noticed the cakes were much aerated than the normal thin pancakes I usually make.
As I write this post, I’m to the point where I’ve made yeast pancakes a few times. I’d say the biggest drawback is that you nave to hydrate the yeast and wait for 45 min. or so for the batter to rise before you can start cooking. This lengthens the process in the morning, making it less practical. Usually I have the time to do this on a Sunday morning, but sometimes would prefer not to wait.
