Bourbon Pancakes

Bourbon Pancakes…yes that’s right…Bourbon for breakfast. I’m sure there are so many things wrong with that sentence, however, if you like bourbon and you have no immediate Sunday plans then you should definitely get on this brunch train with us! The taste of these pancakes reminds us of our Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream , it has a creamy vanilla taste with a really great hint of bourbon flavor. We think this recipe would just be perfect for a Sunday brunch friends get together and with the cold weather settling in, it is a delicious way to warm up your morning! We’ve also added the recipe for a delicious maple, blueberry, cinnamon syrup that adds oh so much to the dish! We also served ours with the addition of crispy bacon and banana bits…yummmmmm. Seriously, go and make these right now, before it is too late!!
