Yeast Pancakes (Flappers) Recipe

Yeast pancakes (flappers) recipe

Any other “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” fans out there?

A few years ago, Guy Fieri came to Minneapolis and visited the Colossal Café in Minneapolis, a teeny-tiny restaurant where pretty much everything on the menu is made from scratch. One of the recipes highlighted on that particular episode was their flappers, or yeast-raised pancakes. I went to Colossal Café with some friends a few weeks after watching the episode to try their flappers.

And oh my goodness were they good.



While nothing will come close to the taste of the flappers I ate at Colossal Café, I certainly enjoyed the batch I recently made at home.

    I love Colossal Cafe, It is such a tiny treasure! The Flappers are always on my list when I can manage to get a spot inside as they are generally packed when I ride by. If it’s just me and the hub we can get in where we fit in, but bringing the whole family is not idea unless picking up something quick to go. That is why I appreciate your post so much because when I can’t steal some time away from the kids and/or hub I need a back up plan. Thank you for posting this I can’t wait to try it out.

      I know what you mean! I wish Colossal was bigger, but then I guess it wouldn’t be what it is…
