This weekend, we brought Guinness Week to a close by celebrating with Guinness pancakes! Originally, my roommate and I had planned to cook up a savory Guinness pancake creation, with potatoes, green apples, and cheese, but when we went to the Palo Alto Farmer's Market on Saturday morning and saw what could possibly be some of the last raspberries of the season, I suggested instead a sweet Guinness pancake with fresh raspberries. And, viola! this delicious, sweet creation was born.
Fresh raspberry Guinness pancakes
with dark chocolate
and mascarpone cream
These Guinness pancakes have such a nice undertone to them--you can't quite tell that it's Guinness, but there's definitely something different there than with your average run-of-the-mill pancake. The subtlety of the pancakes also nicely reflect the delicateness of the fresh raspberries! Definitely a great way to end Guinness Week. Happy 250th, Guinness!
