Okay don’t get your panties in a bunch. After last week’s Guinness Pancakes those who did not like Guinness (weird) asked if there were any alternatives. Did you ask that at college ragers too? Of course there are alternatives to beer. I’ll probably spend the next couple of weeks experimenting with my inner alchi. (YAY for being 21).
Why not make a winocake (winowaffle?).
To be quite honest, I enjoy wine but I don’t drink a lot of it. I still would rather have a bottle of beer but if someone is offering wine at a nice get together I usually won’t turn it down. That is why this week is for all you wine lovers a nice delectable wine pancake. I’m guessing you might want to make this for a brunch or a nice breakfast with the girls but you never know.
2/3 cup flour
¼ cup dark cocoa powder (I used hershey’s dark cocoa)
1 cup red wine
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup sweetener (I used stevia)
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the glaze:
1/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup sweetener (less if you like bitter…more if you don’t)
1 tsp vanilla extra
Mix and pour over
Here is the thing. The wine will not fully cook out. You won’t get tipsy but as always I don’t recommend using this as a 6am breakfast…unless you really want too. It would be great with the girls for a brunch and I fully plan on it…just next time I actually have friends over ha.
I almost forgot to tell you, that I had some friends over for a wino pancake breakfast party who quite enjoyed them. I really enjoyed these a lot more than I thought I would, although I like wine (still not as much as Guinness LOL).
Questions for you: Are you a wineo?
