cooking Black and White pancakes
March 04, 2014
How do you like your pancakes in the morning? I like mine wafer thin, piled high and doused in lemon and sugar. Call me boring, I can handle it.
But this year I have turned to one of my favourite cakes for this years inspiration – Guinness and Chocolate.
I love the drama of the black vs white. The ‘black’ comes in the form of a standard American pancake batter but with dark cocoa and Guinness. The ‘white’ comes in the form of a cream cheese sauce.
If you don’t like Guinness, don’t worry, no-one does except my weird next door neighbour Brian. The Guinness takes away the sickly sweetness of pure chocolate flavour and leaves a dark chocolate undertone with a slight bitterness that goes really nicely with the milky sauce.
