I first tried making these beer pancakes at the annual fall QUAFF campout in Anza Borrego and they were a real hit. When combined with the right beer, these pancakes can be very flavorful. I usually make these with a stout because the flavor is great, goes well with maple syrup, and lets face it stouts are just a great all around breakfast beer. I think next time I’m going try making these with chocolate chips 😀
You will need:
1 cup all purpose flour
¼ cup white sugar
¾ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup beer
2 tbsp melted butter
Making the pancakes:
– In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt).
– Then pour in the egg, beer and melted butter and wisk until just blended.
– Heat a skillet over medium heat and coat with butter or cooking spray. Cook until browned on both sides.
– To make the pancakes more hearty try using half whole wheat flour with half all purpose flour.
