Pancakes With Buttery Bourbon Maple Syrup

By • November 17, 2011 • 21 Comments



Author Notes: Basic Pancakes, fluffy and light but its the maple syrup that is the star. I like to mix Lyle's golden syrup with Grade B maple syrup, add butter and bourbon and serve hot over the pancakes.sdebrango

Makes 10 (approximately) large pancakes

The Syrup

  • 2 cups grade B maple syrup
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup lyles golden syrup
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon (or whatever you want to use or omit)
  1. In medium saucepan add all the ingredients, heat on med heat until butter melts then turn to low and let sit until pancakes are done.

Pancakes

  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. In a small mixing bowl or measuring cup add the milk, egg yolks and vegetable oil whisk to combine.
  2. To large mixing bowl add flour, salt, baking powder and whisk. Beat your egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff. Add the wet ingredients to dry, stir to combine then fold in the egg whites. Heat non stick pan until a drop of water dances on the surface, oil or spray with non stick cooking spray. Ladle some batter into the pan (you know so they look like pancakes) flip with spatula when you notice bubbles start to form.
  3. Serve with a pat of butter on top, pour the hot syrup over them and enjoy!

I'm excited to test it out this weekend! I work for Beam Inc. so I will be using one of our good bourbons for the recipe!

Oh yum. I love the grade B maple. Another good time to visit would be during maple season. We could do the rounds of the local sugar shacks to enjoy a seasonal breakfast out in the field! It is great fun.

I really prefer grade B to A. When is maple season? That would be so much fun! Thanks so much.

Maple season is whenever the sap starts to flow for however long the weather supports...usually March here...when we have lengthening days with full sun and cold snappy nights the sap seems to flow best.
