Sunday Brunch

Its fine and dandy to treat yourself to beinets in New Orleans.  Its quite another to bring a box of the mix home and hook up the electric fryer. Ok I don't even have a fryer and never put more than a spash of oil in a pot since the great popcorn fire of 1985.  So when our j'adorable waiter said they make good pancakes, a light went on.

Throw in an egg, some butter milk and I made Cafe Du Monde buttermilk pancakes with fresh blackberries and yogurt. Perfect pairing with a Brandy Milk Maple punch.

Brandy Milk Maple Punch

1 1/2 VSOP Brandy
3/4 Maple Syrup
4 oz Milk
Dash of natural vanilla extract

PS...good with Bourbon too!

I've been meaning to try a good milk punch... this one sounds awesome! We've got a whisky-based maple liqueur here in Montreal what would be perfect for this recipe.
