Beer For Breakfast?!
Now that I have your attention…. As I type this, I’m sipping on a mug……of coffee. The beer’s for cooking. On a recent visit, my daughter noticed an unlabelled jar of a yellowish, amber liquid in my refrigerator. She asked what it was. I replied, “Stale beer’. She rolled her eyes & asked “What for?” I replied “cooking”. You can do wonderful things with cheap, tough cuts of meat and beer. We’ll go into that another time. It’s Sunday & I’m thinking beer pancakes. The first time I had beer pancakes was at a family gathering while home from college for the summer. At first, I thought they were kidding. It’s pretty simple. If you’re using a mix, or making them from scratch, just make your liquid content a 50/50 mix with beer. Those pancakes will be so light & fluffy you may need to tie them down! Make sure you have plenty of syrup. They’ll soak it up like a sponge.
