I make these on holidays when we have company or whenever my kids come to visit. They all rave about how good they are and my son in law can't believe they contain buttermilk, something he doesn't like....tee hee.
1In small bowl dissolve yeast in water; let stand for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Beat buttermilk, eggs, and oil: stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in yeast mixture and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Stir and fry on lightly oiled griddle. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen medium sized pancakes.
