I found this recipe online and decided to make it.. inspired in an episode from Adventure Time! If you would like to check out the very addictive song you can watch it here. Pancakes are fairly easy to make and doesn’t take very much time. I really enjoyed this recipe and tasted quite good, It did however tasted a little oilier than expected so might be a good idea to use a little less butter and/or make sure you trim or use less fatty bacon. Either way i definitely recommend it!
*A tip if you have a small pan and unable to cook multiple pancakes at a time, heat up your oven to 150F and you can put your pancakes inside to keep them warm until the rest are complete.
- 2 cup of all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 tbsp of butter
- 6 slices of bacon, sliced horizontally and then diced
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs lightly
- Now grab a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar and add the lightly beaten eggs and buttermilk however don’t pour it all in at the same time
- I poured in half the eggs then mix and half the buttermilk then mix and so on, careful to not overmix! This will toughen the pancakes. You want to mix it until you see some small to medium lumps in the mixture
- Once it’s all mixed, put your batter off to the side and let it sit for about 10 minutes. This will make thicken your mixture and this process will make the pancakes fluffier
- While that sits, It’s now a good time to cook our bacon. Grab your bacon and slice or dice them, depending on your preference. A good tip is using a kitchen scissors makes cutting the uncooked bacon easier
- In a medium pan, cook the bacon over medium-high heat and stir frequently until cooked. It should take roughly 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove the bacon and put it over paper towel to soak in the excess oil.
- Wait a few minutes until bacon is cooked down. Once it is cool to touch we can add this in to our batter mixture and mix in lightly, we do not want to keep mixing our batter too much
- In a medium or large pan, heat it up to medium heat and put in a tablespoon of butter. Take a 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it in the pan
- Cook until bubbles form along the sides and flip. Cook until browned. I found this to be roughly 2 min a side seems good but will vary depending on your pan and stove.
- Add a little bit of butter on top and pour on some maple syrup and enjoy!
Feel free to sing the song while you are making this! =)
