Yeast pancakes, just like at my Grandma’s

So this is a recipe I am posting during the polish Grandma’s day. Happy Grandma’s day! 
It was my favourite pancakes, my Grandma used to make for me and my Grandpa in winter when they came almost every year to take care of me when I had winter holidays. I actually was lucky having 3 grandmas (4 if you count grand-grandma also) and each of them was a perfect cook, but they were cooking totally different stuff. And as I said that was my Grandma’s – Krysia’s, main dish for winter holidays at my place. It’s fluffy, soft and delicious! (And after one week of being fed by my Grandma, I was fluffy too :D). But it’s winter now, and in Poland now is -10 degrees, so we need to make ourselves good with a food, and once in a while eating it, we won’t become fat 🙂 Please enjoy!


  • 30 g fresh yeast
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 200 ml warm milk
  • 200 g flour
  • 2 eggs
  • oil for frying
  • powder sugar +/- cherry jam
In a big bowl softly grind yeast with sugar and warm milk (but not hot, cause we’ll then burn yeast and they’re not gonna grow). Add also 2 tbs of flour. Stir it all together and leave until it grows (about 10-15 min in a warm place).
After yeast will grow, add rest of the flour, and beaten eggs. Stir it well (with a wooden spoon), and leave again to grow for about 20 min.
Fry on a hot pan with oil – one tbs of dough for a pancake. After frying it’s good to leave them for a sec on a paper towel to remove additional grease.
Sprinkle pancakes with powder sugar or eat with cherry jam!
Bon Appetit! 🙂
