Ingredients

Bourbon Molasses Butter

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together the flour, pecans, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, butter and vanilla extract and vanilla bean in a small bowl. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture and gently mix to combine. Do not overmix. Let the batter sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes before using.
  3. Heat a cast iron or nonstick griddle pan over medium heat and brush with melted butter. Once the butter begins to sizzle, use 2 tablespoons of the batter for each pancake and cook until the bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes, flip over and cook until the bottom is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer the pancakes to a platter and keep warm in a 200 degree F oven.
  4. Serve 6 pancakes per person, top each with some of the bourbon butter. Drizzle with warm maple syrup and dust with confectioners' sugar. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs and more toasted pecans, if desired.
