Carb Fest 2009: Beer Battered Pancakes

Unemployment helps foster all sorts of useless hobbies, such as: fucking around on the internet, cooking and catching up on a 10-year hiatus with General Hospital. The other day, I managed to do all of these things and now I have a week’s worth of beer battered pancakes sitting in my fridge. If you, too, are also impoverished and looking for a satisfying breakfast devoid of any nutritional value, then step right up because we’re making pancakes!

Beer Battered Pancakes
(adapted from this dubious looking site)

Ingredients:
One 12-ounce can/bottle full-bodied beer
2 large eggs
2 cups milk
4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Using a hand whip, whip eggs until fluffy, then add flour, milk, sugar, oil, baking powder, beer, salt and vanilla until smooth. If too thick, add milk. Heat skillet over medium heat and grease with cooking oil. For each pancake pour as much batter as you like into hot skillet. Cook pancake until puffed on top and bubbling. Turn and cook until golden brown. 

Ingredients:

Ingredients:
One 12-ounce can/bottle full-bodied beer (I used Hoegaarden because it was in my fridge, but I’d probably go with a stout next time)
2 large eggs
2 cups milk
4 Tablespoons grape seed oil (or vegetable oil)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats 
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons flax seed (optional)
Directions:
Using a hand whisk, whip eggs until fluffy. Using a food processor, blend flour and oats. Then add 2 cups of flour mixture, milk, sugar, oil, baking powder, beer, salt, vanilla and flax. It will probably look like a giant vat of soup, so continue adding flour until it looks like batter.
 
Heat skillet over medium heat and grease with cooking oil. For each pancake pour as much batter as you like into hot skillet. Cook pancake until puffed on top and bubbling. Turn and cook until golden brown.  Serve with jam, a homemade syrup or your nearest bottle of Aunt Jemima’s.
