This past weekend was the first weekend since getting our own place that things started feeling a little normal again. From actually moving, tons of unpacking, and diving straight into Robbie’s busy gig schedule, we haven’t really had a chance to just exist in our apartment. But last weekend we had no big plans, and most of the big unpacking was done. I took advantage of that opportunity and made a big Saturday morning breakfast! I turned to my favorite food blogger, The Beeroness, for recipe ideas and found these Super Fluffy Buttermilk Beer Pancakes. Perfect.
*Bacon cooking credit goes to Robbie. I think cooking together is going to become one of my favorite “couples activities”*
Buttermilk Beer Pancakes
AUTHOR: Jackie Dodd (minor adjustments made by Natalie Bates) | PREP TIME: 5 min
- 2 eggs
- ½ tsp cream of tartar
- ½ cup beer (wheat beer, pale ale, or brown ale- I used Hangar 24 Orange Wheat)
- ¼ cup buttermilk (or heavy cream)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tbs sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Butter (to grease the pan)
- Add the eggs, cream of tartar, beer, buttermilk, and vanilla into a large bowl, beat until well combined.
- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
- Add the dry ingredients to the egg and beer mixture, stir until combined.
- Add the butter to a preheated griddle (preheated to 350) or large skillet over medium high heat, push around until melted.
- About ¼ cup at a time, pour the pancake batter on the preheated surface. Allow to cook until bubbles form in the center, flip and allow to cook until golden brown on the underside.
These pancakes were super easy to make and came out great! I tweaked the recipe a little from the original due to having a poorly stocked kitchen (hey, I just moved and got my own place…it takes awhile to build a kitchen from the ground up!). The entire batch of pancakes disappeared though, so I’m calling that a win. And Robbie loved having an excuse to drink the leftover beer with breakfast.
