Blueberry Bourbon Pancakes

Made these this morning Takes about an hour

RECIPE:

Bourbon Blueberry Compote
Makes 3 cups

1/2 cup Bourbon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 cups fresh blueberries (any berry works well)
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Pinch salt

Combine 6 tablespoons of the bourbon with the sugar and heat over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely.
Add the berries and cook until they start breaking down and the mixture thickens slightly, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 4 minutes. Stir in the remaining bourbon and lemon juice.

Bourbon Syrup
Makes 1-1/4 cups

2 tablespoons Bourbon
1 cup maple syrup
2 cinnamon sticks
2 teaspoons whole cloves
1 piece fresh orange peel, 1"x 3", minced
2 tablespoons butter

Combine the maple syrup, cinnamon, clove and orange peel in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium high heat to a simmer then remove from the heat and allow the syrup and aromatics to steep for 20 minutes. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve into a small saucepan.
Gently warm the syrup over low heat. Add the butter and Bourbon and stir until well blended. Serve warm.

Pancake Stack
Makes 8–12 pancakes

2 large eggs
2 cups whole milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 jar marshmallow cream (Fluff)
1 recipe bourbon blueberry compote
1 recipe Bourbon Syrup
Butter for making pancakes
Granulated sugar

Beat the eggs until frothy in a large bowl. Whisk in the milk.
In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture. Stir until well-incorporated, then stir in the butter. The batter should be fairly smooth with a few small lumps.
Heat a large griddle or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a teaspoon of butter to the hot griddle and then spoon a 1/2 cup of batter to form a pancake 5"-6" in diameter. Cook the pancake until bubbles stop forming and the batter begins to set, then flip the pancake (the cooked side should be a deep golden brown). Cook until the other side is set and golden brown. Remove the pancake and set aside on a baking sheet or plate, tented with aluminum foil to keep the pancakes warm. Wipe the griddle/pan down in between with a damp towel or paper towel. Repeat with the melted butter and remaining batter until all of the batter has been used. The griddle may get hot over time, so adjust and lower the heat as necessary.
To make a pancake stack, place a pancake on a plate and top that pancake with a few tablespoons of marshmallow cream. Add another pancake and top again with a few tablespoons of marshmallow cream.
Add a third pancake to the stack. Brush generously with melted butter and then sprinkle the top pancake with a thin, even layer of granulated sugar. Melt the sugar using a hand torch, keeping the torch 6-8 inches away and in constant motion, to melt the sugar evenly without burning it. When the sugar hardens it will form a deep amber brown crust.
Top the pancake stack with the Bourbon Blueberry Compote and then drizzle generously with Bourbon Syrup. Serve immediately!

I love to cook, and I think that fixing an elegant meal for your SO can be a very sensuous form of foreplay.

Hope you enjoy the recipes.
