Sour Cherry Pancakes

  • SERVINGS: makes twelve 3-inch pancakes
  • FAST
  1. 1/2 cup dried sour cherries (about 3 ounces)
  2. 1 cup dry red wine
  3. 3 large eggs
  4. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  5. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  9. 2 large egg whites
  10. 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons clarified unsalted butter (see Note)
  1. In a small nonreactive saucepan, simmer the dried cherries in the wine over moderate heat until plumped, about 15 minutes. Drain the cherries and reserve the wine for another use.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the whole eggs with the oil, flour, salt, pepper, baking powder and 1/4 cup of water. Transfer to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Return the batter to the bowl. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Using a spatula, fold them into the batter.
  3. In a large heavy skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the clarified butter. Gently stir the batter. Then make 3 pancakes using about 3 tablespoons of batter for each. Sprinkle about 8 cherries on each pancake and cook over moderately high heat until golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn the pancakes and cook on the second side for 1 minute. Transfer the pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter and batter.
Make Ahead The pancake batter can be refrigerated for up to 2 hours. The clarified butter can be refrigerated for up to 2 months and frozen for up to 3 months. Notes To make clarified butter, begin with a little more butter than the recipe calls for. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Using a spoon, skim the foam off the surface, then slowly pour the clear butter into a container, leaving the milky solids at the bottom of the pan.
