These tasty breakfast treats are recommended by O’Fallon Brewery Brewmaster, Brian Owens. And yes, these are family friendly! The alcohol burns out leaving you with a delicious pancake with a little extra spice! 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled) 2 tbsp sugar 2 tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt 1 cup O’Fallon Brewery Pumpkin Beer 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted 1 large egg 1 tbsp vegetable oil To prepare: Preheat oven to 200 degrees; have a baking sheet or heatproof platter ready to keep cooked pancakes warm in the oven. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin beer, butter, and egg. Add dry ingredients to beer mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not overmix; a few small lumps are fine). Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium. Fold a sheet of paper towel in half, and moisten with oil; carefully rub skillet with oiled paper towel. For each pancake, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round (you should be able to fit 2 to 3 in a large skillet). Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm in oven. Continue with more oil and remaining batter. (You’ll have 12 to 15 pancakes.) Serve warm, with desired toppings.
