Let's take a break from the fruity and healthy recipes to make this manly stack! Almost everyone loves bacon. And when it comes to a nice cold beer, few are able to resist the sparkling and malty taste that this golden juice leaves in your mouth. Bacon and beer - these two belong together and your Sunday stack of pancakes is the perfect spot for them to meet! Oh, did we mention the whiskey maple syrup? We called these pancakes mancakes, because if this recipe doesn't want to make you grow out an epic beard, put on a plaid lumberjack shirt and go chop some wood with and axe, then nothing will! By the they, our bacon butter fits this stack really well.

For the whiskey maple syrup:

maple syrup
whiskey

This part of the recipe is not only the easiest one, but probably also your favorite one. Mix your tastiest whiskey with the maple syrup - we’d say 2cl whiskey to 100ml of maple syrup, just enough to get the taste right. Remember we're making whiskey flavored syrup, not a maple flavored whiskey.

  1. Okay, lets make some beer flavored bacon pancakes! First off, since we are going to add actual beer into this batter, make sure its nice and cold, and you opened right before when you need to add it to the recipe. The sparkling in the beer helps the baking soda to rise and that makes the pancake extra fluffy. Since you only need 50ml, you can drink the rest while you flip the mancakes.
  2. Preheat the pan to fry up the bacon with some oil! When it comes to bacon, we will not give you any advice, cook as much as you like and any kind you like. We made at least 5-10 thin stripes, but the more the merrier. When you're done frying the bacon, put it on a sheet of baking parchment or a paper towel so the extra fat gets off. Now chop up at least 3-4 stripes of the bacon to add it to the batter later - the rest will be used as a topping (unless you already ate it, then fry some more bacon).
  3. Now put all the dry ingredients into a small bowl - flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder powder and last but not least a little pinch of salt. Sir the mix and set aside.
  4. In the next step we will separate the eggs; in order to do so, place the second small bowl and one big bowl in front of you and crack the egg white into the slightly bigger bowl and put the yolk into the small bowl. Next up we will add 50ml of buttermilk to the egg white and whisk this thing good. Now add 50g of oil to the egg yolk and blend until combined.
  5. Next up, take 50ml of you favorite beer (its pretty much your decision which beer you want in there as long as you just opened it) and add it slowly to egg and buttermilk mixture. You will also add the yolk-oil mixture at this point. And your finely chopped bacon.
  6. Whisk lightly, just that the beer is combined with the rest,but don't over whisk it on this and the step, in order to maintain the foamy texture you've achieved just a minute ago. Now grab that bowl with the dry ingredients and pour it in little by little into the big bowl with liquid ingredients. Again: don't overdo the mixing. We don't want to make flat bread, we are making fluffy beer pancakes! If you leave a few lumps that's just fine. Put it in a cold place for 20 minutes (fridge or cold balcony will do the trick). Now you can relax and finish that beer bottle, but try not to touch the bacon, you will need it!
  7. Alright, lets make some manly bacon pancakes! Put your well-coated pan on a medium heat and pour just about 1-2 tablespoons full of batter the pan. Don't use any oil, it is already in the mixture. Wait for the bubbles to appear and flip. The 2nd side will take less time to get ready. Continue until you're out of batter and place your pancakes on a plate.
  8. Now, when it comes to stacking up and presenting the pancake, feel free to decorate it as you like. But we just love to build large stacks; spread some butter between the layers and place a big pile of crispy bacon on top. Oh yeah! Now the whiskey maple syrup comes along and gets poured all over the stack. Pure awesomeness. A coffee (with a shot of whiskey) or a beer will round up this manly brunch. Your dad or your boyfriend/husband would appreciate this lunch! Moms, wives and girlfriends love them too, by the way.
