Bourbon Pecan Pancakes Recipe

You know, comfort food isn’t just for dinner.  A late breakfast full of delectable items served on a Saturday or Sunday morning, is, to me, the definition of comfort food.  And, no recipe is more at home for an amazing brunch, or a late morning “adult” breakfast than my Bourbon Pecan Pancakes recipe.

Pancakes with Flavor!

Look, I love pancakes.  I love blueberry ones, plain ones, maple syrup ones, golden syrup ones, and just about any other rendition for a pancake you can come up with.  Heck, in Amsterdam I even had them with ham and cheese, and they were awesome!  This recipe is more of a take on a brunch pancake as opposed to an everyday breakfast one.  There is just enough bourbon in the recipe to give it that subtle, oak-ey, “hint of bourbon,” but not enough to overwhelm.

Pecan Syrup is the Star!

This year I have been packaging a lot of new products, with a lot more to come out soon!  If you haven’t tried my pickles and olives, you really need to- they’re awesome!  But, one of my very favorite products is my Pecan Syrup!  You can use it on ribs, as an addition to a BBQ sauce, or a really delicious pancake syrup!

Bourbon Pecan Pancakes Recipe


These bourbon pecan pancakes will make the perfect “adult” brunch item or late breakfast with a loved one.  I used my Pecan Syrup to give them an amazing finish!



2 cups AP flour

1/4 cup sugar

4 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

2 cups buttermilk

1/4 cup melted butter, plus more for cooking

2 large eggs, mixed

2 TBS your favorite bourbon (if you want  more bourbon flavor, add an extra TBS)

My Pecan Syrup, or your favorite pancake syrup.


Mix all dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together

Pour the wet into the dry and mix until incorporated, but don’t over mix.  Let sit 3-4 minutes before cooking.  Spoon 2-3 TBS of batter into a medium hot skillet with butter.  Cook until bubbles stop appearing on top, and about 1/2 are broken, about 2-3 minutes.  Flip over and cook for an additional minute.  Serve pancakes with more butter, powdered sugar, and Pecan Syrup.
