Pecan Porter Pancakes
…and syrup, but it didn’t fit the alliteration model.
On his recent cross-country travels volunteering for the Solar Car Challenge, Matty picked up some Big Texan Brewery Pecan Porter. You can read about our first encounter with that beer here. We think it’s delicious.
Matty had an idea one morning that he wanted pancakes. Cast-iron cooked, pecan porter beer pancakes. I was in another room when he started rustling around in the kitchen, so I had no idea he was actually putting his plan into action. Now, Matty does not do recipes, so I can’t post any exact measurements of what went into these pancakes. But it’s a credit to his sensitivity to the fact that I do like to blog these kinds of things that he took the time to come find me and tell me to, “Get the camera. I have all the ingredients out on the stove.”
- 1/2 cup Pecan Porter (or other tasty beer of your choice)
- 2/3 cup cane sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp corn starch (opt)
- If possible, let the beer reduce a little on its own over med heat. Add the sugar and water and continue to let it cook and gradually thicken. Add corn starch or other thickener if you're in a hurry or just want a thicker syrup.
