Welcome to week twenty one of me posting at least once a week for all of 2014. It is also week 21 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Cooking Challenge. This week’s theme is beer. I used Dominic’s home brew to make chocolate stout pancakes. I topped them with melted butter, beautiful ripe strawberries, some fresh yogurt cream and some complex real maple syrup.
The first and only time I ate stout pancakes was years ago at McMenamins Hotel Oregon. Dominic and I came through Oregon on a wine vacation and I ordered stout pancakes for breakfast one morning. They were the most delicious, complex pancakes I had ever tasted. I thought about them for years. McMenamins sadly does not have them on the menu any more. It’s ok, because I know how to make them now. Next time I think I will use a little buckwheat flour in the mix though.
We went strawberry picking today with my wonderful In-laws who are visiting us from PA. We had a great time, and I wanted to show our pickings in all their glory. They are just as delicious, sweet and succulent, as they are beautiful.
I looked up beer pancakes, and stout pancakes online and there are tons and tons of recipes. I picked bits from several different recipes and then added my own deliciousness. I urge you to make these. However you top them, be sure to invite some family and friends over to share with you. This recipe makes a lot of pancakes. Leftovers will freeze beautifully for future quick breakfasts, or lunchtime nutty, sweet pancake sandwiches.
