Yeast raised sourdough cakes

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Krustez Sourdough Bread Mix
1 \N Bottle full bodied beer, warm (12 ounces, Alaska Brewery Amber Beer recommended)
½ cup Warm water
3 tablespoons Driy mik powder
½ teaspoon Salt
3 tablespoons Sugar
¼ cup Canola oil *
2 \N Eggs (preferably at room temperature to avoid cooling the mixture)
1 pack Dry yeast (1 tablespoon bulk yeast)

Get up a little early and start this so the yeast has a chance to get to bubbling. Getting all the lumps out a the start is not critical -- the yeast will win over the lumps.

Cook on hot griddle and enjoy the smell. These are tender and great with real maple syrup.

* I usually omit the oil and use cooking spray on the griddle to lower the "F" rating.

Notes: Works great with unbleached white flour, wholewheat pastry flour, mixtures of flour, etc.

Use of beer in flapjack back in the "old days" provide yeast for the pancakes. With the current microfiltered beer, yeast has to be added.

Beer can be replaced with milk -- most of the alcohol does cook off, but Fick's Law rules and all will not leave in the time that a pancake cooks.

(yes I did a masters thesis on gas exchange in liquid) Those with alcohol sensitivity should use milk or water.

Increase the oil, or use cooking spray on the irons to make waffles.
