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!
