Mike decided to surprise me and make me pancakes with a butter rum syrup. He clattered around so much I was pretty sure he’d decided to abort the pancake making mission and just gut and remodel the kitchen. In the end, instead of pancakes with a butter-rum sauce, I got butter rum pancakes, which were pretty damn good, so I thought I’d share the recipe. <– term used loosely.
The ingredients are a little sketchy, so if it is too wet add more mix and if it is too dry add more water. And yes, I know he started with boxed pancake mix but he’s a man, not Gwyneth Paltrow. If I’d married her, she would have died of shame in our first year.
- 2 cups of pancake mix (the kind that only requires water)
- 3/4 cup rum
- 1/4 stick of butter
- Cup of water
- Dash of nutmeg
- Dash of cinnamon
Spoon onto a griddle or into a pan and turn into pancakes.
As you can see, they’re diet, too.
The most impressive thing was that Mike had the cojones to make the pancakes, because the batter could put your on your ass. You’d think the pancakes would taste like straight rum, but the cooking knocks the bulk of the rum out of them. So, if you taste the batter, don’t be surprised if you start talking in tongues, but the pancakes themselves are very good and not strong.
Have some with the kids!
