Usually, Pancakes made with Whole Grain Flour are dry and flat, not this one. The yeast allows the batter to rise, creating air pockets that are pivotal in the process. If you pour a bubbly batter into a hot grill, the Pancakes will rise becoming fluffier than any other you've ever tried. Don't they look fluffy and pretty?
