Cinnamon Raisin Pancakes

These puffy raisin pancakes are sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and served with applesauce on the side. Kids will have fun seeing the pancake’s batter double in size as the yeast rises. This recipe comes to us from Simran and Stacey of A Little Yumminess.

Adult:  Prepare a plate with a layer of paper towels and a skillet with a light layer of oil or cooking spray. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Warm the milk in a separate small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Kid: Mix the flour and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. Mix the yeast and 2 tablespoons of the sugar together in a small mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir the cinnamon and remaining 4 tablespoons of sugar together in a separate small bowl. Set aside.

Adult: Add the warm milk, melted butter, eggs and raisins to the flour-yeast mixture. Mix well until the ingredients form a sticky dough. Cover and let rise for 30-45 minutes, or until the dough has puffed up and doubled in size. When the dough has risen, place the prepared skillet over medium-high heat.

Kid: Drop spoonfuls of dough into the pan until you are out of batter. You may have to make the pancakes in batches.

Adult: Cook the pancakes for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden on both sides.

Together: Sprinkle each serving with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and enjoy with applesauce on the side!
