While line-dancing for excercise with my 80 year old friend, we got to talking about the special foods our grandmothers fixed for us. My grandmother spoke only German and I spoke only English, but we communicated through our love of cooking. She had a pack of grandkids and I was the only one allowed to hang around in the kitchen. Grandma Redies added the brown sugar to the bacon just for me. Now I serve the pancakes with butter and Maple Syrup made in Michigan
1The night before --soften yeast in the lukewarm water. Stir in flour and let stand overnight
2Dip bacon in water, then flour. Cook over medium heat until brown on one side, turn over, sprinkle with brown sugar and continue cooking. This bacon will cook flat, so use a large skillet.
3While bacon is cooking add the rest of the pancake ingredients to the yeast mixture, mix well. cook on oiled or sprayed griddle over medium heat until most of the bubble have broken. Flip and cook 15-20 seconds more.
