Recipe for Valentine’s Day: Framboise Pancakes

February 13, 2010

Lindemans Framboise is a classic sweet and fruity Belgian Raspberry Lambic beer.  Pour into a champagne flute, and you’re loved one will be surprised to discover that this beverage is actually a beer!  I’ll post a review on the beer itself tomorrow, but in the meantime, those looking for an idea for breakfast/brunch on Valentine’s Day, here’s a recipe I created:\

Framboise Pancakes

1 cup flour (1/2 white, 1/2 whole wheat optional)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup half-and-half (or whole milk)
3/4 cup LindemansFramboise
2 tablespoons cooking oil
Chocolate Chips (quantity to your taste)

Mix together the dry ingrediants (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) in one bowl & set aside. Mix together the remaining ingrediants (minus the chocolate chips) in another bowl. Add the liquid mixture to the dry, and stir (watch it foam up as the beer reacts with the baking powder). Then add your chocolate chips.

On a non-stick pan or griddle on medium heat, pour tablespoons full of batter to make silver-dollar size pancakes. Cook for about a minute or so, until bubbles begin to form on the surface. Flip, and cook for 45 seconds more, or until golden brown.

For toppings, you can simply use real maple syrup, or some frozen raspberries heated with a little water and sugar. Or use my special syrup below:

1/2 cup Framboise
1/4 cup real maple syrup
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Heat the Framboise over medium heat until slightly thickened. Add maple syrup and reduce to low. Wisk the mixture while slowly adding chocolate chips a few at a time as they melt.

Serve warm over pancakes.
