{Beer and breakfast?}

Not always the smartest idea. However, I can tell you this recipe is delicious! The Newcastle's caramel malt brings a new dimension to this classic morning treat.  MJ found this recipe a couple weeks back. I was a little skeptical to say the least but if there is one thing he's good at it is making breakfast. So, he whipped up some of these pancakes this morning. 

Newcastle Brown Pancakes

finished product. i apologize for the mess on the table. 
What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Newcastle Brown Ale
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (if you don't have brown, white sugar works too)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons soft or melted butter
  • Dash of salt

Using a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon and baking soda.

Add in the Newcastle, egg and butter and stir enough to blend ingredients– without over mixing.

Heat your skillet and coat with butter or cooking oil, then simply cook like you would for any other pancakes.

Looking good...

This recipe makes plenty for two, but you can easily double the ingredients for four, or otherwise alter for serving size. Enjoy!
