So I wanted to prepare a post ready for pancake day. I do love pancake day because it’s another excuse to eat more pancakes! Ordinarily my family stick to the usual thin pancakes, sultanas and lemon juice with a sprinkle of sugar. I do love these but I have decided to cook something different for you to try. Considering most of my cooking and reviews so far have been American style barbecue based, I though I would stick with that theme and cook American style pancakes, topped with banana in butterscotch sauce. It’s my first time making butterscotch sauce actually but I definitely liked it.
I have to say… They are pretty incredible pancakes. Even if you don’t like butterscotch sauce I would definitely suggest cooking the pancakes. They are just as good with blueberries, maple syrup, bacon, lemon juice and raisins or pretty much anything else you can imagine would go with pancakes. Light and fluffy… They are really good and I 100% recommend you give them a try if you don’t already eat them regularly.
Just in case you don’t know how to make this. Here’s how:

One of my favourites when it comes to cooking BBQ-ish food at home is pulled pork. Although I am certain that cooking something like this would be better on the smoker/barbecue, it isn’t always possible. I know that many of the people reading this will barbecue rain or shine and although I will if the mood takes me… Most people wouldn’t.
I would like to make it clear at this point that I am no expert in the kitchen or on the barbecue. I am only a keen cook with a good love for barbecue food and these recipes only detail how I cook this particular meal. If you have any tips or suggestions that might improve the recipe, I am more than happy to hear them. In any case, this is a great way to cook it at home. Primarily because it’s pretty simple to make and the end results are delicious.

This recipe is not my own. I originally made it following a recipe for barbecue sauce used by Chef Tom Kerridge. I have adapted it a little depending on what it will be used for. Use less liquid if your just making it as a regular sauce. Follow the recipe below for a glaze or marinade. The reason I probably like this sauce so much is that it packs a punch. It isn’t healthy in the slightest but it tastes damn good. It’s strong, tangy yet sweet with a little bit of spice for a kick. I would definitely suggest that you at least give this a go.
So this is what you need to make it.

In this blog I have decided to show you just one of the ways I might cook barbecue ribs when cooking on the barbecue is not an option. Some of you might say that using the barbecue is always an option, rain or shine you would use it but… most people wouldn’t necessarily share that opinion. Personally, I would love to use the barbecue whenever possible but I don’t when it’s too cold. If I had a smoker I would probably use that more often. I am in the process of building one and you can see how that is progressing by clicking here.
So here’s my barbecue pork ribs.
