These Harry Potter Butterbeer Pancakes are the perfect nerdy start to your day or a great way to kick off The Chosen One’s birthday!
You guys! BUTTERBEER PANCAKES! I mean, I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a better way to start the day. Seriously, Butterbeer freakin’ pancakes! It only took about 4 batches to get them right, but it was so so worth it!
Is anyone else excited about the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, both the play and the written screenplay? I’ve been trying to convince my husband to go to London for weeks now, it hasn’t happened yet, but I can promise you, IT WILL – someday! But in the meantime, I’m really excited for the book adaptation to come out this weekend!
Plus, my friend Marissa from RaeGun Ramblings has been hosting this super fun Harry Potter party on her blog and I’m excited to be joining in for the tail end of it with this delicious breakfast dish!
These pancakes are made with a mix of butterscotch, caramel, vanilla, and butter to give that rich and delicious butterbeer taste we all know and love! They’re also made with ricotta cheese to keep them soft and fluffy. And then they’re topped with the most incredible butter syrup, like no joke, this stuff is amazing. You might be thinking – butter syrup, why not just add a couple squares of butter and let them melt over the pancakes like muggles do – well, because this is no ordinary syrup!
This syrup is made with butter, buttermilk, butter extract, sugar, and baking soda and it’s out-of-this-wizarding-world-good! These pancakes just wouldn’t be the same without it! This syrup is basically a buttery sugary drizzle that tastes like every freshly baked, warm pastry. It’s absolutely heavenly.
So stack those pancakes up, pour that amazing syrup all over them and top them off with a fluffy butterscotch whipped cream! Don’t forget to drizzle them with butterscotch or caramel syrup (or both) and you can’t leave out the Lightning Bolt Sprinkles!
