Pancake Day: Top 5 Boozy Pancake Recipes

Pancakes are best enjoyed with a shot of something slightly stronger.
Chow down on five totally tasty, adults-only recipes for Pancake Day this February 13th.

TOP 5 BOOZY PANCAKES

Pancake Day - that one day of the year where you can stuff your face with fried food and not be ostracized by society – yes! - Just as long as you promise to absolutely, definitely, without-a-doubt give up one thing for Lent… right?

Not really. No one cares!

Just throw your lent goals into the same bin as your 2 week-long New Year’s resolution, or your 2 hour-long Dry January stint (we get it, it was tough). All that matters here are pancakes… and booze. Obviously.

So, why not make the most out of your 24 hours of guilt-free gluttony? Hit two birds with one stone with our top 5 boozy pancake recipes. After all, the best types of pancakes most certainly contain a dash (or three) of booze.

 

IRISH CREAM PANCAKES

Certainly more full-on dessert than Tuesday evening snack, the inclusion of Irish Cream Liqueur in pancake batter is a touch of sweet-toothed genius. As is the whipped topping. So, if you're thinking of abstaining from the sweet stuff for lent, at least go out in style...

Irish Cream Pancakes with Sauternes

Ingredients:
For the batter:
- 110g plain flour
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 2 large eggs
- 200ml semi-skimmed milk mixed with 75ml water
- 50g butter
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 50ml Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur

Method
Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl, then mix it into your pancake batter with the eggs, milk and baileys. Melt a good knob of butter in a pan, and add two tablespoons to the batter. To make the pancakes, ladle the batter into the hot buttery pan, then gently spread out the mixture into a disc shape. When bubbles appear on the surface, flip the pancakes over and continue to cook until done, then gently spread out into a disc shape.

Put them all on warm plates, folded into quarters.

For the topping:
- 50ml Irish Cream liqueur
- 2 tablespoons of butter, melted

To make the topping, combine liqueur, butter and sugar and set aside. Keep cool for at least an hour. Make the pancakes as above, but with the inclusion of Irish Cream at whisking stage. To serve place a spoonful of topping on each pancake and a generous portion of whipped cream.

For something slightly healthier, simply swap out the topping for lemon and sugar.

 

LEMON CREAM LIQUEUR PANCAKES

If the thought Irish cream is giving you nightmares of Christmas past (sorry) then perhaps you’d prefer substituting that Bailey’s for a brand-new treat courtesy of Carthy & Black, Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur. A 31Dover.com favourite, this liqueur will completely revolutionize your pancakes, transforming them into thin slices of lemon-drizzle-cake-like deliciousness.


Ingredients:
For the batter:
- 110g plain flour
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 2 large eggs
- 200ml semi-skimmed milk mixed with 75ml water
- 50g butter
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 50ml Carthy & Black Yorkshire Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur

Method
Make the pancakes as before, but this time substitute the Bailey's for Carthy & Black Yorkshire Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur into your pancake batter with the eggs, milk.

For the topping:
- 50ml Carthy & Black Yorkshire Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur
- 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
- 100g granulated sugar
- Whipped cream

To make the topping, combine liqueur, butter and sugar and set aside. Keep cool for at least an hour. Make the pancakes as above, but with the inclusion of Irish Cream at whisking stage. To serve place a spoonful of topping on each pancake and a generous portion of whipped cream.

 

CHERRY & CHERRY LIQUEUR PANCAKES

The addition of a Cherry Brandy Liqueur - so fruity, just sweet enough, with distinct amaretto flavours - is an excellent accompaniment to fruity pancakes packed with cherries and served with plenty of cream. Decadent? Yes. Delicious? Most definitely.

Cherry Brandy Pancakes

Ingredients:
- For the batter, see above
- 300g fresh cherries, de-stoned
- 100ml Cherry Brandy Liqueur
- Thick cream

Method:
Make the pancakes as before, without the grated apple. Do not fold the pancakes. Cook the cherries down in the Brandy Liqueur, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Portion out the cherries onto flat pancakes, add some dollops of cream and roll up.

Serve with more Cherry Brandy in a tumbler or wine glass. Super simple, seriously tasty.

 

BOURBON SYRUP BACON PANCAKES

A firm favourite of our resident Canadians, tackling these pancakes will require the confidence and fool-hardiness that only a North American is born with. First, you need to swap out those sissy crepes for thick buttermilk pancakes. Then, you’re gonna have to stack ‘em high, bacon ‘em up and drown them in sweet bourbon-y goodness! Sounds delicious, eh?

Ingredients:
For the batter:

- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ½ cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon melted butter
- Bacon (If you'd like)

For the Topping:
- 1 cup maple syrup
- ¼ cup original Buffalo Trace Bourbon
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Method:
Make the pancakes as before with your new, but leave the mixture for 10-15 minutes to let the mixture rise and help make your pancakes fluffy. For the syrup: In a small pot over low heat, combine the buffalo trace, maple syrup and butter. Stir until the mixture simmers lightly. Let simmer for a few minutes to cook off the alcohol in the whiskey. Then remove from heat and let cool.

Serve warm or cold over pancakes.

 

PUMPKIN SPICE LIQUEUR PANCAKES

Don’t let anyone tell you that pumpkin spice is exclusively for Autumn! We say, as long as feeling in your fingers disappears when you're outside then it’s still okay to enjoy some warming pumpkin flavoured treats. Plus, our Mozart Pumpkin Spice Liqueur will give your pancakes a lovely orange hue – beige is so last pancake day.


Ingredients:
For the batter:
- 110g plain flour
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 2 large eggs
- 200ml semi-skimmed milk mixed with 75ml water
- 50g butter
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 50ml Mozart Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Method
Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl, then mix it into your pancake batter with the eggs, milk and Mozart. Then follow the usual steps!

For the topping:
- 50ml Mozart Pumpkin Spice liqueur
- 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
- 100g granulated sugar
- Whipped cream

To make the topping, combine liqueur, butter and sugar and set aside. Keep cool for at least an hour. To serve place a spoonful of topping on each pancake and a generous portion of whipped cream.

 

Fancy getting really creative at home? Replicate Mr. Fogg's sloe gin-infused pancakes with blueberries and fresh cream or experiment with a full range of liqueurs, simply swapping in your fruit and spirit of choice.
