Gin and Tonic Pancakes anyone?
Pancake Day is upon us and we have the perfect ginspired recipe, designed to add a gin twist to the traditional pancake serve. The recipe is super easy to make at home, and is packed full of gin! These pancakes mean business!
So forget the lemon and sugar, pass on the chocolate spread, and ditch the bananas…..Instead we insist you reach for a bottle of gin, a good quality tonic and add some zing to your pancake day.
Our preferred gin partner for these pancakes is Daffy’s Gin.
200gram of Self Raising Flour
200ml of Tonic Water (we used Schweppes as it’s effervescent, the more bubbles in the tonic the better!)
50ml of Daffy’s Gin (or your gin of choice)
50ml of Milk
4 Tablespoons of Sugar
4 Tablespoons of Gin
Juice of 2 Limes
Add the sugar, gin and lime juice into a saucepan.
Boil on a high heat for several minutes. Take off the heat when the syrup has a thick consistency and set aside.
Combine the self raising flour, tonic water, gin, milk and egg into a large mixing bowl. Whisk vigorously and set aside.
Heat butter or coconut oil in a large non stick frying pan. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture to the pan. Cook for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side – they should be a nice golden brown colour.
Stack the pancakes onto a plate and drizzle the gin syrup over the top making sure that the luscious liquid oozes its way down the stack.
Garnish with mint, lime and blueberries and of course a G & T, or in this case a signature Daffy’s D & T.
