Yeast Pancakes with Raspberry Syrup

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. - David Viscott

June is a month of birthdays in our after the next.  And one of our favourite ways to celebrate is with a special birthday breakfast.  There are so many delicious things that you can make for breakfast.  Here are some of our favourties:

Homemade Bagels
Apple Cheese Danish
Sticky Buns
Almond Buns

But for my husband's birthday I decided to make fancy pancakes...
We enjoyed this twist on a traditional breakfast standard.  I hope that this recipe can inspire your own creative breakfast celebration...for a birthday...Father's Day...or any other special occassion.

Yeast Pancakes (from Taste of Home)
Serves 4-6 or about 12 pancakes

2 packages quick rise yeast
3 cups warm milk
4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 eggs 

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. 
2.  In a small pot, warm up milk and butter.  (mixture should be about 120 degrees F) 
3.  Slowly incorporate the warm milk into the flour, yeast mixture. 
4.  Lightly beat the eggs; stir into the batter until well combined. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
5.  Pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancake; cook until second side is golden brown. 

Serve with...

Raspberry Syrup (from Allrecipe)

1 pint fresh raspberries (frozen raspberries work fine, too)
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons Orange Juice
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 cup cold water

1.  Combine raspberries, sugar and cornstarch in a bowl.  

2.  Pour mixture into saucepan.  Add orange juice and water.  Bring to boil.
3.  Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until desired consistency is reached. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
4. Puree the sauce in a blender or with a handheld immersion blender and strain it through a fine sieve.
5.  Serve warm or cold. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
