Light and Fluffy Pancakes with an Irish Twist

This post was meant for St. Patty's Day but with all the excitement over the weekend it slipped through the cracks. In honor of Saint Patrick's Day I bought fancy butter. Irish butter to be exact.

Yes, I know it's a little bit of an untraditional way to celebrate the day of the Irish. But I assure you there was a lot of beer consumption later in the day.

The morning though, consisted of the fluffiest banana pancakes you could make topped with generous pats of golden delicious Irish butter and real maple syrup. 

The butter was a special splurge after reading how much healthier and tastier butter is from grass fed cows. After having this butter I've decided regular butter is a poor excuse for butter in general. Just what I need, to get on a fancy butter kick.

The pancakes are Mark Bittman's recipe and they require a little more work and an extra bowl, but they are well worth it. These are the pancakes to eat if you don't want to fill up on heavy gut busting pancakes. They are light and airy from the addition of whipped egg whites. I topped mine with bananas, walnuts, the delicious butter, and real maple syrup. Quite a Saturday morning treat!

Peace, love, Irish butter, and happiness!

  3. Being Irish I love Kerrygold butter. When I moved to Seattle last year, I was excited to find that it's available in most big grocery stores here. It is the best butter to cook with! Your pancakes sound delicious, I must try them.

  4. Banana pancakes are an appetizing way for kids and adults to enjoy the health benefits of this food
