I love pancakes. Partially because I love breakfast, but also because my great-grandfather’s pancake recipe was the first dish my parents let me cook without help. So at the age of eight, pancakes became my gateway recipe. Over the years, I have experimented with pancakes more than any other food. While I still use the old family recipe as a guideline, I have used it for everything from classics like blueberry, to more adventurous versions like cinnamon-applesauce and eggnog.
This recipe is one of my more recent pancake ventures, inspired by my love of all things Guinness. They smell incredible when cooking, and have a great flavor that is not too sweet. While they don’t taste too strongly of Guinness, these pancakes have the slightest bitter dark chocolate/coffee notes that really enhance the cinnamon. Overall, the beer jazzes up a traditional buttermilk pancake flavor without being overwhelming. They taste great with maple syrup, but I recommend serving them with a light caramel sauce.

Following the massive popularity of our recent 100 Ways to Cook with Guinness post, the brass in Dublin decided Endless Simmer should be among the first “early influencers” invited to try their new product, Crystal Guinness, set to be released in the U.K. and Ireland on June 1 and in the U.S. later this summer.
The brew is Guinness’ first attempt at a spinoff product in more than three decades, and was conceptualized in response to declining Guinness sales throughout Ireland. While Guinness remains the most popular beverage sold in the motherland, it has recently lost considerable market share to Bulmers Irish Cider, which has enjoyed phenomenal success over the past five years, particularly during the summertime. Irish countryside pubs are still reliably stocked by old lads who wouldn’t dare order anything but the classic black stuff, but in more cosmopolitan Dublin, younger drinkers have gone crazy for Bulmers’ sharp, fruity taste and light, drinkable body.
