Flapjacks turn fancy with this yeast batter, which gives them a brioche-like texture.

  • Whisk in flour, salt, butter, and egg yolks until batter is smooth. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Transfer bowl to a warm place; let dough rise until doubled (about 1 1/2 hours), or make batter the night before, and let rise overnight in refrigerator.

  • Heat griddle to 375 degrees and oven to 175 degrees. Using a 2-ounce (1/4-cup) ladle, pour batter onto griddle, creating several pools, 2 inches apart. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on the top and the edges are slightly dry, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, flip pancakes; cook until golden on bottom, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a heatproof plate; keep in warm oven. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve.

We LOVED this recipe. Best pancakes I've made and they do taste like brioche. Make sure you do not overheat your milk and kill the yeast...or you will end up with rubber disks.

I had high hopes for these but they were kind of awful. Didn't rise much and were oddly dense and chewy.

This pancake is easier to be prepared than ordinary pancake. I don?
