Ingredients

Pancakes

Syrup

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. butter extract (use vanilla if you can't find butter)

Whipped Cream

Optional Toppings

Instructions

Pancakes

  • Add butterscotch chips to a food processor or blender and pulse until fine bits form.
  • In a large bowl, not a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and and butterscotch chip crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, ricotta, coffee creamer, and eggs. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. The batter should be a bit lumpy, do not overmix.
  • Spray griddle or large pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Use a ½ cup measuring cup to measure and pour batter onto cooking surface. Cook for 1 ½ - 2 minutes until edges start to bubble, flip and cook the other side for about a minute until that side is golden brown.

Syrup

  • While pancakes are cooking, add butter, buttermilk, and sugar to a medium saucepan. Stir together on medium heat until sugar has dissolved and butter has melted. Let ingredients come to a boil and boil for one minute and remove from heat.
  • Stir in baking soda and butter extract, syrup will have a bubbly foam on the top, this is normal. Let rest for a few minutes and your syrup is ready to serve.

Whipped Cream

  • Whip all ingredients in a medium bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until light and fluffy.

Assemble

  • Top your stack of pancakes with the butter syrup, butterscotch whipped cream, and optional toppings.

Notes

  • Several have asked and since much of the butterbeer inspired flavor comes from the whipped cream and the syrup, you can use a regular pancakes mix or your own pancake recipe and just add the butterscotch chips to them and add the additional toppings.
