Beer And Pancakes - The Perfect Match
Shrove Tuesday, or as it is more affectionately known “Pancake Day” has been a tradition for Britons for many centuries. The one day out of the year where it is nationally accepted for men, women and children to completely obliterate the kitchen in a puff of floury, sugary smoke. And that is exactly what we have done for you to find the ultimate food and beer matches when it comes to the glorious pancake.
Perfect Pancake Recipe:
3 large free-range eggs
100g plain flour
Pinch of salt
Place the flour and salt in a bowl, whisk in the eggs and milk until you create a perfect smooth batter.
Bacon & Chocolate Pancakes, with No1 Pale Ale
A match made in culinary heaven, sweet and savoury wrapped beautifully together on the plate by a light and fluffy pancake. Make up your pancakes, at the same time cook your streaky bacon crispy. Top your perfect pancakes with chunks of your favourite chocolate and pieces of bacon. Pair these salty sweet notes with the malty notes of McMullen No1 Pale as the missing link between these two favourites.
Beer & Cheese Pancakes, with McMullen Pale Ale
