Whisking With Whisky!

Bored of traditional pancakes with sugar and lemon? As it’s Whisky Week we’re breaking the norm with these super easy whisky sauce recipes! Simply pour them over your favourite pancakes for an indulgent treat!

Whisky Maple and Bacon Syrup

You’ll need:

8 oz thin-sliced bacon, diced and cooked crisp

350ml maple syrup

1 shot rye whisky


1. Put all ingredients in a small saucepan and place over low heat until it just comes to a simmer.

2. Take off the heat and if the syrup is too hot, it runs thin, so serve when just warm. Makes approximately 1 ¾ cups. Keep it in the fridge and use within one week.

Fruity Whisky Sauce

You’ll need:

2 tbsp honey

15g butter

3 tbsp whisky

150g fresh strawberries


1. Pour the orange juice into a frying pan and add the honey and butter. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the whisky.

2. Pour over pancakes and sprinkle sliced strawberries on top.

Cheat your way to a boozy, meaty, sinful pancake day!
