Take some bacon and I'll put it in a pancake,
Bacon pancakes, that's what it's gonna make,
Bacon Pancakes are awesome!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 8 slices bacon
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flour,
sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk
together buttermilk, melted butter, and egg. Whisk flour mixture into
buttermilk mixture just until moistened, with small to medium lumps
(Do this while singing the above song) In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet or on a griddle,
cook bacon over medium heat until fat is rendered and bacon is browned
on one side, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip and cook until golden and crisp on
underside, 1 to 3 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels; pour off all but
1 teaspoon fat from skillet (reserve for another use).
Heat skillet over medium. Pour 1/4-cupfuls batter into
skillet and top each with a bacon slice. Cook until some bubbles appear
on top of pancakes and a few have burst, about 2 minutes. With a
spatula, carefully flip pancakes and cook until browned on underside,
about 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter, bacon side up, and loosely tent
with foil. Keep pancakes warm in oven and repeat with remaining batter,
adding more bacon fat if needed. Serve with pure maple syrup if desired.
These bacon pancakes are simply amazing! They will change your life!
