Want a Hoppy Pancake Tueday - Use Beer Batter!!

Beer isn’t something usually associated with breakfast.

If you pick the right beer you can add all kinds of amazing flavours to your batter. While boring milk adds very little, a spiced saison adds some savoury depth, a nice red ale a little malty sweetness, and a hoppy IPA a citric tang. The beer is also carbonated, which helps to give the pancakes a lovely light batter if you use it straight away.

But what makes this recipe really awesome is that the beer completely replaces the milk. These dairy-free pancakes can work for both savoury and sweet dishes; try a wit – a lemony Belgian-style wheat beer ­– with traditional lemon and sugar, or an IPA with Cheddar and mushroom-topped pancake where the hoppy flavours cut right through the cheese.

This one is made with saison beer, a super-carbonated herbal and spicy beer that gives the pancakes real depth. It’s best with blueberries, crispy rashers and a drizzle of maple syrup, but you can go wild with any toppings you want. I bet some cinnamon sugar would be amazing.

 We also have gluten free beer if you want to keep it gluten free!

Makes about 10 pancakes

  • 3 rashers quality streaky bacon per person
  • 1 mug of self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 mug of spiced saison beer (about a 330ml bottle)
  • olive oil
  • 1 punnet of blueberries
  • Maple syrup

 

Preheat your oven to 220°C/450°F and line a baking try with greaseproof paper. Put a grill on top and lay the rashers over the bars.

Sieve your flour into a mixing bowl, then crack in the egg. Using a whisk, beat the mixture while adding the beer gradually so it doesn’t foam over. Whisk until there are no big lumps. Stir through the blue berries gently.

Whack your bacon in the oven and get your frying pan on a high heat. Add the oil then turn the heat down to medium and add a tiny bit of batter to the pan to check the temperature – the first one usually gets messed up. Once you’re happy, add a ladleful per pancake and fry until the bubbles on the surface pop, then flip them. Once cooked, stack them on a plate and lay another plate on top to keep them warm.

Your rashers should be crispy and lovely after about 20 minutes, so take it out and lay them on some kitchen towel to dry. Stack your pancakes and top with the bacon, then drizzle over as much maple syrup as you dare, and tuck in!
